Ok so this is a bit of a niche one, but I know some oddballs like me like to shoot with film sometimes!

This is pretty decent film and is great value at £1 a pack and even works out far cheaper than the multipacks I have seen.

I have only seen it Manchester Arndale Poundland but thats not to say others don't have it, I just don't know until others can confirm.

I picked up 10 as it is dated 2013 but there was a massive stack of over 100+ I would estimate, so plenty to go around us 3 people that still use it :p

Also confirmed in Chelmsford so likely more stores too!

what's 35mm film?
#2
Just saw them in the Chelmsford branch too so probably nationwide.
#3
Wow! Old skool! I thought dSLR's had pretty much killed this stuff off!
#4
Good spot MassiveBongFace.

Although I don't use film any more this is an excellent buy for those that do. Heat given.

What next, a box of wig powder for a quid? OR is there a stash of flint axes in some warehouse waiting to be the next bargain?

I assume this doesn't include developing costs :-)
(I'm sure some used to in days gone by)

Anyone know a good place to get these developed?

Processing cost used to be included for slides. Probably not much choice now for film processing apart from mail order labs.

At least one branch of Poundland sold 35mm film from time to time during the last year, which was useful as a quick alternative when my digital camera broke. When I last checked six months ago, larger Tesco supermarkets were still offering a film processing service (£2.99 for 24 exposures I think), and Jessops also offered a developing service but they were dearer than Tesco.

Disposable film cameras are still readily available - I've seen them for sale in Poundland - and I suspect that most films developed nowadays are from disposable cameras.

Can you still get this type of thing developed anywhere or do you have to create your own darkroom and do it yourself?

I still use film Its a bit of a bind if you don't have a dark room so I send my off to be developed.

abbey photo services in bath tried to sell my this film today for £4.99
#13
Yeah its pretty easy to get your photo's developed, loads of Boots branches and all Max Spielman stores still do it.

And yeah I know not a lot of people use it but its good for those that do. I know for example pretty much all photography students do some film stuff so it going to be good for those guys.

If you voting cold as some people are please explain why as I would love to get my hands on some even cheaper! Im sure its not just because you don't use it yourself............................:p

So its not a deal because its in Poundland? As I said may be in other stores and someone else has confirmed one other so likely more.
#16
nice find thx been paying extortionate prices for film
#17
I don't think this is store specific because I got some from Poundland in Merry Hill. 7dayshop is also quite good because they sell expired film sometimes which makes it cheaper, although you do have to pay for delivery.
#18
I can confirm this in Colchester for at least the past 6 months... occasionally 36 exp too :)

I took into Asda a couple of rolls of expired Portra that I shot on a Voigtländer rangefinder two weeks ago, and got them to dev only (£2 per film) and scan them both on the same CD (95p).

Saves me having to process it and scan it myself (which I have done in colour chemistry, a couple of years ago, but in medium format). Doing colour doesn’t actually take that long, but you have to be very precise on the timing and the temperatures.

The majority of my own film and home developing is black & white, then I scan the negs on an old Epson 4490 (Note my picture thing on the left! That’s my last (empty) roll of Agfa APX, which isn’t made any more (well, now it is, again)). Having said that, Kodak ColorPlus isn’t exactly one of Kodak’s prime products — it’s essentially a distinctly non-professional film aimed at the masses, and won’t demonstrate any particular signs of excellence. Reviews are fairly poor. If you want to shoot film on a budget, and you’re after a lo-fi look, this will help. If you want a film with greater range, clarity and vibrance, without spending too much, try some of the Fuji Superia 200 which you can get in 36exposure rolls from 7dayshop for a 10+ price of £1.69 if you buy ten (yes, more expensive than this, but is 36exp instead of 24, and gives better results).

I work for a photographic company - you'd be amazed how much film we still sell. No idea who is buying it or what for though..
Any reports you hear about manufacturers stopping film production haven't seen the sales figures and profit margins trust me...........

have you looked at Kodaks share prices recently. If the rate of decline continues they wont exist in 5 years time.

I suspect any film sales are from enthusiastic traditionalists who are gathering stock before it no longer exists.

Cassette tapes, 35mm film, DVD's ....they'll all be forgotten memories and not to far into the future either.

My grandparents still use film because they can't get their heads around digital cameras and memory cards and computers and stuff ;)

These have been in the Southport Poundland for months, but great price.

If you a] already have a camera, paid for, works and you understand it; b] buy cheap film like this; c] take it in to instore minilabs for cheap D&P + CD; and you only shoot about five rolls a year, you’ll probably be ahead of the game in terms of expenditure versus getting a digital camera, which (if you’re in the five rolls a year market) probably won’t have such good optics, won’t have a full-frame sensor, will have a confusing incomprehensible over-featured interface, will be impossible to actually read without reading glasses on, and will be obsolete the moment you buy it. I mean, it depends what kind of person you are, but not everybody takes photos every day, and not everybody wants to join in the obsolescence race. Sticking with your existing film camera and relying on cheap minilabs isn’t too bad in terms of overall expenditure.

You forgot to include one very important piece of data - how many years of ownership does your calculation assume?

That said, the idea that a digital camera will become obsolete whereas my 30 year old Olympus AF-10 wont is ridiculous.

For everyday joes like most of us, film is dead. Its less reliable, its time consuming, there's no preview/delete....the list just goes on and on. As I said earlier, it wont be long before its guardians will be a few hobbyists.

This deal proves it. Apparently this is good film yet its worked its way into the pound shop because its unsellable and unwanted.

ummm.... only some of the best photographers in the world.
well, obviously they don't use this one.

I bought 36exp ones some time ago for a pound.
to be honest - such cheap film is pointless. those who just want to point and shoot, will use digital, as the shoot gazillion pics and film would bankrupt them that way. pro's use 5dmkII etc or good film as there is no point buying cheapo if a good scanning and dev costs lots.
or 3rd , a very rare option I use myself - test roll for cameras.

not to mention that kodak makes loads of digital sensors and other stuff. so it's irrelevant - the stock price.
#27
You would be surprised the amount of Kodaks revenue that comes from film. I was looking earlier after the stock price was mentioned. Can't find the dam site now but I think it was £300+ million in the last financial year. So I think it is safe to say the stuff is not in the bargain shop because no one wants it. I guess this is just the cheap end of the market.

Anyway, to each his own!

the stock price is irrelevant???? I take it your not a shareholder in any company least of all kodak. What an incredibly naive statement. How would you suggest mere mortals gauge the financial stablity of a company?

If you do a search you'll find that one of the reasons for their collapse is their misplaced belief that film had a future and they continued to support it at a financially unsustainable level.

Anyway, as I said, everyday 35mm film is dead and contrary to what the previous poster said, it is in the poundshop because nobody wants it - unless someone is going to convince me that the poundshop has some of the most incredible supply deals directly with companies like Kodak to stock their goods. LOL.

Over £300 million a year in sales for just one of the companies that produces film and you think no one wants it!?

Just because you don't use it does not mean a thing and your the one being naive if you think that.

Oh and the fact this is over 200 degrees only further reenforces the fact people want this stuff.

To quote you "LOL"

EDIT - Just found that article and I was wrong sadly. It was $367 million from film in the last financial quarter. Who would have thought it over a billion dollars a year from something no one wants. wow!

so exactly what does $300 million dollars mean? It would help if you'd put that into context. I say its a relatively small amount of money compared to the revenue generated by other formats. Is that figure rising or falling?

Kodaks share price seems to confirm I'm right, unless you have any evidence to the contrary. Thought so, you don't.

Its amusing to think that you consider a poundshop clearance item to be desirable because a very very small number of people on a forum vote it hot rather than cold.

How's the sale of consumer cassette tapes going whilst you're being nostalgic, weren't kodak into those too.

LOL indeed, now I'm FPMSL.
#31
A billion dollars a year and you think there is no demand. And of course it is falling, no one is suggesting that it is some sort of growth market. Like I said at the top of the post this is a niche one.

But realistically there is no point in even discussing it with you mate if you think a billion dollars is no demand. But I would love to invest in a business ran by you if you have any oppurtunities. You must be making like a trillion dollars from products as billion is not worth getting out of bed for apparently.

It could be several trillion dollars for all I care. But when I see a company posting record losses quarter after quarter I tend to overlook gross sales somewhat.

What's that you say, you didn't even think that a business needed to make a profit but merely sell profitless goods. Now I've FPMSL again. Behave will you with your clearly made up stupidity.

Dont wait to invest in one of my businesses, get yourself some Kodak shares! LMAO

I have never mentioned share prices, Kodaks profit or loss or anything else. You need to READ peoples comments properly mate. The only reason I bought up the sales is because you claim no one wants it which is clearly not the case.

Also I have not made up a single word of what I said just ask Google.

Please dont embarrass yourself any further by making me point it out to you, there's not that many posts to read through.

Go and ask the ex-employees of the film manufacturers who are now out of business how popular film is if you need any further clarification.

I wasn't endorsing this film. The last Kodask film I shot was Ektar 25. I prefer Fuji (for c41) and Ilford.

I still have a 120 roll of APX 25. Is that the film you are referring to that has been reborn? There are Art 25 types about eg Adox, but IIRC APX 25 had good reciprocity characteristics. Reciprocity data on the Art 25 types seems thin on the ground.

I went from DSLR to SLR.

I buy some from times to times in my local £land in Edinburgh.

Unbeatable price. Probably a permanent deal though (since december where I am)

About 7£ for processing

Ok so we both agree it's not some growth industry but people still want it and companies still sell loads. But most of all people clearly think this is a hot deal so what exactly is your point!?

Oh and if you look a few posts back 'nobody wants it' is EXACTLY what you said.

Re: Film vs Digital

I started Uni last year studying photography. When I started I was firmly in the "Why are they teaching us about film its pointless" camp. 6 months into the course I stopped using my D90 and re brought off ebay an F90x just like the one I sold in 1991. Asda process a roll of film for 2 quid, these scanned images are way better than what my crop sensor D90 produces. To get the equivalent quality I'd need to spend 4k on a full frame camera and lenses. If you can take a good image you don't need to look at it straight away which makes the preview available on digital cameras pointless.
