Hi there, Now that yet another favourite film of mine has been discontinued - Jessops R50 (120), Im looking to buy Efke 120 film in the UK? Anyone know a source?

thanks, Gary.

The best thing I can offer is a specialized shop in Germany. However, they ship internationally:

Jessop R50 is Efke R50. R on Efke and Jessop films stands for "Rollfilm" = 120 , KB for "Kleinbildfilm" =35mm. Efke 50 in 35mm and 120 is readily available at Fotoimpex in Berlin. They are very reliable and ship worldwide.

I love Efke films! R25, R50 and R100. Extremely fine grain and the conversion of colors into greyscale is great. The slow speed films are ortopan-chromatic. R100 has a little larger grain than APX100 and Plus-X, but I like it. It's hard to go wrong with R100, it's so forgiving. Much more so than the APX and PXP.

Yes, Im very aware that the Jessops R film is the same as Efke, plus it only cost me 87p a roll about 1.41 euros!

If anyone has any of the above films stockpiled, give me a shout. I've already checked with Jessops' warehouse and there is no film in the company. Thanks for the info on fotoimpex.
