    OMG, we're already calling film old fashioned??

    I still reckon a scanned neg from my medium format Yashica D gives much better pics than a digital camera

    (ok, there's a can of worms...)

    Stanley St has a myriad of shops that sell all types of film... though not sure if it is what you'd call "cheap". What do you call cheap?

    so, to further my education here, what do you call a nice price for film?

    Go to Mongkok, Sai Yeung Choi Street South... that's the main shopping street with all the Broadway and other shops. Look for a camera shop called Wing Shing / Man Sing... they carry a range of 35mm film. Photo scientific in Central does carry film.
    I am not aware of a place that sells film "cheap", film is still popular and not only used by professionals. It's still being produced regularly so there is no reason for any of the shops to sell them cheaply.
