Buying MF film in NY city

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by eddymendoza, Sep 25, 2011.

  1. Hi friends! Going to NY city this week and was wondering if anyone knows of a good, reasonably priced place to buy some 120 or 220
    film. I am currently in Sarasota and cannot find anywhere near by to buy film. All we have here is Wolf/Ritz camera and although you
    can still take your mf film there to develop, they stopped carrying any medium format film.


    Thanks

  2. Never mind friends and fellow photographers, I think B&H will do.

  3. B&H, first floor slightly to the left directly across from the cash registers (Ninth Avenue btwn 34th and 33rd Sts, east side of the avenue)
    Adorama, rear, left portion of the store (18th St. between Sixth and Fifth, or is it 17th? you'll have to check -- south side of the street)
    Calumet halfway back on the left (22nd Street between Sixth and Fifth).
    Go shoot the Flatiron Building a la Steichen. (You'll want to be on Madison Square Park's perimeter, on Fifth Ave at about 24th St). Everyone has to do it at least once.
     
  4. Don't just run into B&H for the film. Schedule at least an hour to look around.
     
  5. And they are closing Weds for a few days.

    All Standard Shipping orders placed before Wednesday, September 28, at 7:00AM EDT and Rush Shipping orders placed before Wednesday, September 28, at 10:30AM EDT will be processed normally. Orders placed after the above times will be processed when we reopen on Sunday, October 2nd.

    We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patronage.
     
  6. If you're driving, B&H has free parking for the first hour if you purchase over $100. I think they go up to two hours with a $300 purchase, but check with them. Their store is like a candy shop, so time goes fast. Watch your watch.
     
  7. I just found out that B&H is closed this Thursday, Friday and I didn't pay attention after that. Harvey said it's a holiday. I don't recall any holiday but it's NY. Does anyone here know any place upstate where I can buy some? I also have a few days here in Sarasota if anyone knows of a place here.
    Thanks

  11. I think that Willoughby's is likely to follow the same holiday closing schedule as B&H. Adorama also but not, AFAIK Calumet.

    Since their web site says they're open Saturdays, I think not.
