    im looking to buy some film but i dont actually know much about it so if someone could help thatd be awesome!

    i know these are right:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fujifilm-Sup.../dp/B00004TWM0

    but id like to find an option to NOT buy a multipack, and so am looking for someone selling single rolls etc, and i can find a whole bunch of sellers selling these:

    The second link is the same film but has 36 exposures on the roll instead of 24.

    The first link works out at 17p per exposure. The 2nd is 25p.

    oh yeah great thanks
    i new about the value and the number, i just wanted to know if the actual film was the same.

    if yes then great! (i still dont know which to buy tbh because i dont know if i want so many but i do love a deal... hmmm)

    im going to do some more research i think

    EDIT: hang on sorry what does 'exposures' mean as in 36 exposures? sorry to be dense.

    The number of pictures you can take.

    So the first link has 4 rolls, with 24 potential pictures on each roll. The 2nd has one roll with 36 on it.

    Note that, depending on your camera, you *might* get an extra picture per roll. Just for fun...

    Having more pictures per roll makes the cost per picture cheaper, but don't forget developing costs.

    Also, if you aren't taking many pictures you have to wait longer to finish a roll and get it developed before you see how many are any good. Back in the day when I shot film I'd expect to get perhaps 1 in 4 photos to be reasonably good. It's not like digital where you rattle off loads of shots and just delete ones you don't like without any consequence... film makes you more selective before you press the shutter (and appreciative of each good shot).
