  1. Sorry but it looks like a re-spooled, out-dated, over-priced "crap shoot"(pun intended?). I can get stale 35mm c-41 for a buck a roll. Why not buy fresh, scan and play around in post?
     
  2. Lots of good stuff there. Some of the same is available from the Film Photography Podcast Store. And no...it isn't over
    priced.

    as well as freestyle get goor reports
     
  4. ISO 6? Never heard of it.
     
  5. iso 6, that would be copy film....
     
  6. Walter, what do you mean when you say Freestyle has bad reports? I have had
    nothing but continuously great service from them.
     
  7. I also have only good experience with Freestyle.

    "as well as freestyle get goor reports"

    From the context, I'm sure that typo "goor" is supposed to be "good".
     
  9. I have nothing but good with Freestyle and Ultrafine.
     
  10. I believe they are legit, although i've never bought from them personally. If you don't want to chance your money they have recently been posting on a couple of Flickr groups asking for empty film canisters in exchange for free film http://www.flickr.com/groups/ishootfilm/discuss/72157637460825783/ and here http://www.flickr.com/groups/filmphotographypodcast/discuss/72157629344441825/.
    I'm sure if they had been ripping people off you would have heard about it in these threads.
    They've got an interesting selection of films but more for curiosity than consistent supply.
     
  11. The above website is run by a young man in Belgium. He reuses film cassettes for his projects. I just sent him 250 empties. I am going to be getting some from him soon.
    I, too, have had nothing but good experiences with Freestyle and the films that they sell.
