    hi,
    i'm starting to shoot in the 16mm world..
    which online film stock sellers would you recommend?

    i want them to ship to europe (italy).
    i just found bhphotovideo.com, which has fair prices, but they make
    you wait a couple of weeks since they dont have in stock

    thanks a lot,
    Andrea

  4. or because its cheeper to shoot on film then to shoot on tape and then blow
    up to film.
    And unless you have a lot of cash to put into post film looks better.

    The big advantage if you can afford going film is it's easier to
    achieve a professional looking product.(At least from a cinema
    standpoint.)
    I shot alot of my projects on 16mm back in the 80's due to the
    limitations of video at the time. Then transferred the final cut to
    video for distribution.
    All I needed was a good camera and a movieola. That and sufficient
    stock and a light or two and I was up and running.

    They're simply placing the order for it then marking it up, try going
    straight to the manufacturer.
    If you like the look of Kodak stock(eastman color) then look up the
    kodak distributor in you region.
    Fuji is also a good brand of film stock and it doesn't cost quite as
    much.
    Try these links:
