Film or Analog Photography has experienced a decline in popularity since the advent of digital technology but recently, enthusiastic film buffs are bringing back its charm.

Analog cameras possess an out-of-the-box warmth we can never get from our trusty digital cameras; not to mention the nostalgic sound of its mechanical shutter snap. The photos it produces have also a certain tinge of creativity. These may have been the reasons why many people make film photography their hobby.

There are enough online shops selling and trading film cameras to get you started in analog photography. But if you’re searching for the cheapest film roll stores, we rounded up online shops where you can get the most affordable film rolls inside Manila.
