List Of Places To Buy Rolls Of Film Online

Oh, the feeling of opening up that little box the size of your finger and unwrapping the glory of a roll of film! All you want to do is fit that little sucker in your Pentax K1000, and find your next subject to shoot. The excitement and unpredictability of film is something the digital medium will just never have, and although finding film around town might be a bit of a scavenger hunt, there are a lot of places online that offer you that little film-roll gold nugget.

There are so many rolls of film out there, that you shouldn’t succumb to the Kodak MAX 400 from the drug store. Venture out, that’s what film is all about. Momma always said that life was like a roll of film, you never know what you’re gonna get.

Below you’ll find a few websites that offer photographic film, from 35mm, 120, medium to large format. A few of these places not only offer film, but also darkroom equipment, photo-paper and other supplies you might need.

If there is a website where you buy film, that you would recommend to your fellow photogs, leave it in the comments section below. I encourage especially our international readers, as it’s always hard to find places with good deals and fair shipping costs. I added about six online resources for our international folk, five of those are in the UK.

    How about some good places to get film developed. Or maybe some solid tutorials on how to develop?

    Well, if nothing else, we now know that Michelle has odd-sized fingers. (I kid, I kid; a roll of 120 isn’t too far off. But 35mm?)

    This site has an incredible amount of film, even in large format size. They also offer lots of darkroom equipment.
