Hi All,

 

I am so pleased that I found this forum.

 

Apart from Frame 24 and Widescreen Centre, where do you buy 16mm film stock in the UK?

 

The best price I can find for 100ft is just under £40 and that's at Frame 24.

 

Any advice and tips would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers

Julian

If you buy 4 100ft rolls from Frame 24 at £36 you'll spend around £144, whereas as 400ft roll will cost you around £108, so that's £36. Is that 'peanuts'?
