There's new film on eBay!

What's the most unusual/obscure film those places sell?
I'm not a film aficionado so maybe this isn't obscure, but Blue Moon sells Minox spy camera film

I'm lucky living in what might be hipster capital USA, Portland, Oregon. I have 3 local shops to buy film from. Blue Moon has the most diverse selection. Pro Photo has the best prices. Citizens is the closest to my house. I shop at each for those reasons. I go to eBay if I'm itching for expired film.
What they said ^ ^ ^

Not only do these stores have fresh stock (some in refrigerated storage), but the selection is good and includes other than 35mm and 120.

As for me...I am not close to the Portland stores and tend to buy online from B&H, Freestyle, and (ever so rarely) Maco Direct (Germany).

They also have 110, 127, 620, and instant camera films in addition to the more pedestrian 35mm, 120, and sheet films (four sizes). Makers include Adox, Agfa, Bergger, Fuji, Ilford, Kodak, Kentmere, Lomography, New55, Impossible, and Rollei. I would expect that they will add JCH and Ferrania*. Great place, Blue Moon

I can confirm that Blue Moon does stock JCH and Ferrania P30. I bought a few rolls of the 2nd batch of JCH and 1 roll of P30 there last month.

Freestyle mail order is my main source for film and processing supplies.

I like to support them with my business for their ongoing commitment to film photographers.

I usually buy my B&W film from my local camera shop. But when I buy color, I tend to shop around, and more often than not, I buy from Freestyle.
