If you do bulk roll, the cost can go as low as $5.80-$6 per roll, i.e. usual retail price is $125 per can.

Latest news!

CP is offloading their remaining Velvia bulk @ $80! However, the only catch is they expire in July this year! The last time when I was there, i.e. Saturday, I was told they still have 13 cans in stock!

$80?? That's tempting man. :) But July is a bit..... early.

Perhaps we could share and get a coupla cans from them. I'm sure amongst ourselves, we'd be able to shoot off a some rolls by July.

Bulk Provia 100F is $96-97 from either Cathay or FotoGuide.

Kodak EliteChrome 100 is going for $60 for 10 rolls and $7.00 if purchased individually.

I believe the price variance of between $0.10-$0.30 pales in comparison of what a bulk buy can do. If indeed it works out to be $5.80-$6.00 a roll, that works out to be savings of around $3.70-$4.00 per roll. That's savings of $40 for just 10 rolls!

But wait! There's more! Since CP's offloading their Velvia at $80 a can, and assuming a very modest 19 rolls a can, each roll works out to be $4.21! That's savings of over 50%.

Anyone out there interested to share a can? I probably need around 10 rolls or so.

Might need some help to roll the film though.

Actually I don't mind the $80 Velvia bulk. But somebody must load it for me :p

BTW, where can I find the recommended reciprocity compensation values for Velvia? Or can anyone suggest a starting point for me? TIA. :)

Regards,
JK
