I get mine from a Hong Kong seller on eBay.
It's cheaper to buy in bulk. :)

Oooh, that's good. I recently got the camera for xmas and it (thankfully) came with a 2-pack. But the stuff isn't cheap is it? Still like $25, which is about what polaroid is going for, except that you can't find it as easily.

Yeah not cheap, but, there is a nice little Lomography store in Manhattan on 8th street, if you're in the area, that sells a 2 pack for $24 I think.

I get mine in a local pharmacy - it used to be 12.99 Euro for a single pack (10 shots) but now that's gone up to 15 Euros or thereabouts. So that makes it much dearer than yours.

I meant to say I'm in Ireland.

Just found these two bulk deals on ebay, from a seller in Brooklyn:

200 shots for $150 + 7.99 shipping
(79 cents a shot)

400 shots for $300 + 7.99 shipping
(77 cents a shot)

That's almost half what you'd normally pay per shot. Granted I just placed an order so haven't received anything yet. So you can a. take your chances like me, or b. wait until I post back here with my results... :-)

I agree that buying in bulk does save money, however for people like me who are still experimenting with the hobby and can't spend $100 on film alone in one go, I found this online store.

They offer free shipping, and so a double pack at $19.99 equals to only $1 a shot, which is the best price I've been able to find outside of bulk buying.

Any physical store chains in the US that anyone is aware of?

In regards to my previous post, I just received my film and everything worked out great. So, go for the ebay deals if you can afford it (or find someone to split with you), otherwise adorama (maura's link above) is great for twin packs.

Here in Los Angeles, you can easily up my film at any Samy's Location(they are are also located across SoCal) or Freestyle and Mel Pierce in Hollywood. and i know they sell it at the actual pro camera stores not just online in NY like B&H and Calumet

Hong Kong is also good as I order it 1 week and the next it is here... 10-20 packs at a time and at about 60 cents a shot.

Is there any risk of film coming from the far East being x-rayed on the way in to the US or UK ?
inetjoker PRO 8 years ago
Nope no problem... I have received over 50 packs with no problem.

I just go to Wolf Camera (as much as I hate the store), it's around $24.00. The prices at all the places I've been are around the same amount.
