Hi,

 

Does anyone know of the cheapest place to buy Double 8MM film in the UK? 

 

I've looked around various places but it's all in the £25+ for 25ft of Black and White.

 

I've noticed on B&H in the states it's cheap as hell, and would work out at about £7 in UK pounds. Why is it so expensive over here? Am I missing something?

 

Thanks, Andrew.

What's really odd about that is the fact that it's Foma, a European product.

 

Although I don't know of anywhere in the UK,

 

Wittner has it in 100ft loads.  So, you'd have to spool it down to 25ft spools.  But, it's only 20 EUR.

That's probably your best bet.  I can't imagine the shipping is much from Germany to UK.

Mr. Nowill used to sell the high contrast B&W reperfed stock pretty cheap, but it's a fair number of years since I had any contact or did anything with Std8.
Have you tried Photoworld in Llandudno?
