I'm new to film photography and I've decided to go with the Canon A-1 + 50mm f1.4 but film is a little pricey but I wanted to know where I can find the best deal.

So, where do you purchase your film from?

The least expensive way to purchase film is in bulk, in 20-roll packages.  (external link) However, be aware that if you feel that the price of film is more than what you want to spend, than you will face even more expense in getting that film processed and printed. The main expense in using film is and has been in processing and printing. Typically the processing and printing costs are greater than for the film. Those costs are a major reason that film has gone out of fashion in the digital era. You also will learn that film is often best stored in a freezer or refrigerator.

I always bought 100 ft. rolls and loaded reusable cassettes. One advantage, other than cost, was that you weren't limited to 36 or 20 shot rolls.
