    120 and 35mm. Preferably something open on Sunday, though that might be a tall order. (Don't ask why I'm asking.)

    Oh dear. I saw your thread about your trip. Forgot film or bag got lost? Hope you manage to find some.

    Remembering film seemed so obvious that I guess I just didn't. More focused on passport and personal items... You know, less important things. Managed to get a four pack of Superia 400 at Walmart, which I'm fine with and use anyway. I need some 120 though!

    Good news is my wife is joining me later this week. Hopefully she won't forget. It's sitting in a Ziploc in the fridge.

    Hotel is in Crema. I'm at Linate now waiting for my coworker and then I'll need some sleep. It would be nice to get back to the city later this afternoon (we'll have a car) but I'm playing it by ear.

    Thanks everyone.

    Yesterday I was thinking I could reach you somewhere around milano and give you some film. I have fresh velvia, provia, hp5 and fp4 in 120, but I see now I’m too late. I’m coming back from alps where I’ve been skiing with my two kids and will return to parma this evening. My suggestion is enjojing the city without thinking about photography until you get your hands on some film...
    And if you decide to come to parma you’re welcome!

    I was so excited. Someone PM'd me a place that was a two minute walk from my B&B. They have a website promoting analog, a Facebook page, etc. I walked to the address listed. The camera store closed. It's now a cannabis shop.

    I've had this happen to me too many times to count. The store website is up, it has social media, shows up on Google maps, and then you get there...and it's closed, or a restaurant, or a whatever. That's why threads like this are important, so we can get up to date information for these kinds of situations.

    I found film within walking distance. Only 11 Euros! I wanted slide film and this will have to do. I've never shot Agfa anything before.

    Its white labeled Fuji Provia 100F, actually. I'm very lucky to have a drugstore chain that is selling the double pack for €12.45. Who knows for how much longer.

    I figured as much. I'd give my left arm right now for a medium format roll of Velvia or Provia...

    Yes, they should, but it's been a busy week here (at work) and it's about a 50 minute drive from Crema. I'm finally going to see a little bit of Milan tomorrow morning before my flight. Thanks for the tips! I'm going to see if New Old Camera has what I need.
