I wish I had that kind of store near me

Kinda sad, really, all of that Pentax legacy is drowning away.

See, I wish photography was like that here: film is a different medium, not an obsolescent one.

OH MY GOD, my girlfriend would NEVER let me anywhere near a shop like that. I would buy up all the 8X10 T-Max film they had.

You can always get another girlfriend, but sooner or later they're gonna stop making 8x10 film.

Just sayin'.

i'm not planning on it but as things are I have bought a considerable stockpile of my favorite films and they should last me for quite a while. thought at the moment I'm doing a series that I intend to be my one of my last exhibition works on 8X10 format - the film i'm using is tech-pan, in conjunction with platinum printing which is another practically extinct process ( i'm one of two people here in Adelaide who know how to do it.)

Seriously, I would love someplace like this here. My choice of films is so limited that I'd be absolutely thrilled if I could walk into a store and NOT find the same, usually ancient 4 roll boxes of Fuji/Kodak 200/400 film hanging on a hook! Black and white film is almost non-existent in this place, and I think Walmart and Walgreens are the only two place I can actually get a higher iso film than that. Both places it costs a lot more than it should and it's still Kodak or Fuji anyway. I've never actually had the chance to shoot anything else.

The other day I went into a local discount store and there were actually 2 boxes of 4 roll Rite Aid brand film on a hook at $2.50 a pop. I was so darned thrilled at seeing another name on the box and a price below $10-15 a box that I bought them anyway just because I could. The expiration date is 10/31/10 and it's probably terrible film being a generic brand but I don't care because at least it means I'll finally be able to shoot something I've never tried before!

I've actually thought about shooting the Walgreen's brand just to shoot it once or twice, but it's priced here in such a way that I'm really not saving much by buying it versus the Kodak/Fuji so I really haven't felt the difference was worth it. But that's about the only generic film that I've actually seen around here. Everywhere else I go it's pretty much the 4 pack 200/400 Fuji or Kodak at $12-15.
