Many people own microfilms - actual films, not digital - and are looking for a way to digitize them.
I have found a supplier quoting €0.036/frame, which makes a 1 200 frames rolls cost €43.2. That's ca. 1/3 of NARA price and 1/2 of reseller price.
This specialised firm may cut his price further if they get a larger volume, "larger" meaning some 50 more rolls than the current deal.
Their service is very good. They sometimes re-run microfilms under a different setting to capture a single missing frame, giving me 2 copies for the price of one.
So far they not only processed films from me but also received directly from other people I brought. Contact me if you are interested.
PS: if you don't have a microfilm to start with, this is not going to give you access to a roll at a discounted cost.
