Hi Steve

Have you tried 7day shop for film?  Very reasonable prices, they ship
fresh stock from Gurnsey.  Limited range but if they have what you
want I havent found a cheaper source.

Here in the UK, there is a Kodak film called Ultra. It is ISO 400, but
is
currently being reformulated and repackaged and will be ISO 640
(although,
as a consumer film, the only ISO making is on the cassette). It sells
(in
quantity) for about 2 (US$3) for a 36 exp. roll. I usually buy it in
the
"duty free" as I travel through an airport.

This film is made in the EU (not sure where) and I find it a great
all-rounder. I used to use Kodak's ISO 200 US products, as the grain
of the
400s was still objectionable. No such complaints with Ultra.

Please note this is just a film I use for general purposes. In such
use, I
am a chauvinistic Kodak user (in respect for the many years of support
they
provided me professionally) so I cannot compare to other films
directly.
