Film availability in shopping malls is sketchy. So try The Online Warehouse.

If you plan to shoot film, best if you bring your own stash.

Hi,

Yes you won't a wide variety and selection of film here in Manila.

Most of us buy online. /the onlinewarehouse

If you can buy film at cheaper prices where you live, best to just bring them with you on your trip.

For cameras, same story as well. There is a local film community but availability of cameras for sale is far and few in between. They are often found priced at a premium. No bargains to be found here unfortunately

Do enjoy our islands and send me a PM if you need help around

Nathan

while in Manila and interested in camera gear Hidalgo street in Quiapo is a must: http://www.ambot-ah.com/hidalgo-st-q...e-philippines/
It has been a while, adding the photos I saw 9 years, that I was there. There also was a lot of used gear for sale, mostly not cheap. If I take other places as measure used camera stores might have become less, but some still must be there.

For visitors of Manila, even if not interested in cameras, Quiapo for Quiapo church with the Black Nazarene anyway is a must: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quiapo,_Manila
and so are the areas around, including Hidalgo street: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidalgo_Street

...
it's a very photogenic area! a few snaps from then around the church

even had made a video mostly taken around Quiapo, towards the end a take of inside and then right outside Quiapo church, that I shared on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nrtal4Sh178
( oh my, the quality of the reduced file then..)

Hidalgo street still should be the place to go in Manila for anything related to photography, including analogue camera and films.
When I was there more used film equipment was offered than new, digital gear. I expect that to have changed, but e.g. here few stores on Hidalgo selling film is explicitly mentioned http://outoftownblog.com/cheap-camer...idalgo-quiapo/ and it includes some contact info, email addresses for inquiry
