    I agree

    Arista EDU 120 is cheap and I like it too. My only complaint is that my negs are too curly with that film :sad:

    You want curly, try some film that expired in 1969, that stuff was loads of fun to get on the spool, come to think of it it wasn't easy to get off the spool either.

    The trick is to shoot it up as fast as you can, that way it doesn't have time to set a curl.

    Boy, you ain't right! But I guess it's the "green" thing to do.

    i'm not really sure what you mean by that ...
    people don't want to sell it ? or i don't have an affinity for it ?

    it really has nothing to do with being "green" ... i feed it to my cameras
    and they don't seem to complain after i wash it down with some coffee ...

    Hi John:

    I have some expired Classic Pan 200 that I'd be happy to send to a foreign country.

    Let me count the rolls, and then we can talk :smile:.

    I think by 'green' he meant that by you using outdated film, you're keeping it from being thrown away in the landfill.
