Film order

A couple of days ago I ordered some film over the Internet. I thought of buying it in some physical store, but the prices are prohibitive.
For instance: a 35mm Provia 100F, 36 exposures roll is 3 times the price on an actual store.

So I searched around a bit and ended up with two options: macodirect.de and fujilab.co.uk.
The first is based in Germany, has a minimum order of €49.50 and charges about €18 for EU shipping; the latter is based in the UK, doesn’t have a minimum amount, has better prices overall and charges about €13 for the shipping (maximum of 2 KG).

Needless to say, I went for Fuji Lab (WPS Media). The order was processed and shipped in only 2 days. I’m now waiting for the goodies…

Here’s what I ordered, along with prices — pretty reasonable, I’d say.
