Its cheap enough to not to worry about a bulk purchase. Better to buy it while
the stock is still available and have a bit in storage for that dark day.

But for the sake of discussion is it necessary to freeze such a low ASA film,
its what 4-6 ASA? I had been led to believe that while film benefits from cold
storage its the high speed colour camera films that are the most susceptible to
the effects of age and poor storage.

i buy it (7378) in bulk from kodak. 2400 feet at a time. it comes in two rolls
of 1200 feet. it's way way cheaper that way... and then i just spool it down
onto daylight spools. comes in less that $200 canadian for 2400 feet. so it
works out to less than $10 per 100ft roll.

if you're in a city with a film co-op you should see if they have a light-tight
room with handwinders and a split reel... that plus 24 daylight spools and boxes
is all you need.

whatever you don't use stores well in the freezer.
