    Hey all,

    I'm not normally a "trader", but after visiting a table with lots of OLD stuff on it this past sunday at the local camera show, some purchases got me thinkin:
    "Why not get a collection of old, older, new/current, past, etc... 120/620 film boxes?" Make some sort of display out of all of them. I'm looking to get 90-100 or so, all different ones.
    PREFERABLY WITH FILM STILL INSIDE/INTACT/UNOPENED(similar to what you see in my pictures below):

    So, I'm looking for BOXED old/older, etc.. film 120/620 only please, any manufacture from any era, any country as long as its 120 or 620, and in a clean(ish)(like not falling to pieces) single-roll box.

    I'm looking for this because I have a special project in mind to do with it. Don't want to spoil it, its a personal "art/decoration" wall piece for when I have a bigger place with more wall space(call it "future planning" :wink:).
    I'll post pictures of it here after I've completed the project(once I've amassed 90-100 or more(if possible, I can expand it) DIFFERENT films/boxes.

    (1) box for (1) box, straight trade.
    We each cover shipping from our own ends. Lets keep this cheap, so preferably within the USA.
    For "donations"(where you don't want anything I have, but have stuff you want to let go, I'll cover postage costs. For "donations" of film, I'd prefer if it was 2-3 or more types, postage DOES add up $$$-wise)


    here's what I have for trade:
    (10) rolls Agfa ISS 120
    (2) rolls Fuji N100 120

    thanks,
    Dan

    ***please, if you want to do a trade, post what you have for trade/donation here publicly so others can know what's been covered. CLEAN boxes are preferable please.

    I'll put together a list of stuff I have when I get home tonight, but I would really REALLY like to trade for the Agfa as a brick!

    I know I have some older Tri-X, like 1960s/70s, Kodachrome 120, Kodacolor II but I will have to look for the other stuff. My memory is not so good!

    tjaded obviously got here first, maybe he will trade me too haha, I actually don't NEED to shoot the stuff, I'm more interested in what's inside... I have a few AGFA 120 roll containers, and I'd like more, they say Isopan ISS so if the boxes have aluminum slide on or screw on lids for the 120 I definitely want at least some, maybe half? lol

    hey ya'll.

    frankly, the 'brick' is something i feel needs to be split up. I've attached a picture showing what is in another like box(the 11th roll, same stuff). "Share the love" so to speak...

    Hey, Dan.

    If you're interested, I have a couple rolls I could part with if you still have any of the Agfa left.

    I have two rolls of Kodak Ektachrome 50 Tungsten and one roll of Kodacolor 400.

    The Kodacolor expired in 1/1981 and the Ektachrome in 02/1984.

    That's the only old stuff I have that's in individual boxes that I'm also willing to get rid of.

    I have some Provia that expired in 2002, but I imagine you can easily find that anywhere on your own.

    If you're not too picky, I can hook you up with empty boxes/spools/backing paper for some old (80s) Ilford Pan F, but I use the film often and it would take something very special to get me to part with any of the actual film (I only have about 2 bricks left).

    Also, I may be in LA in a couple days, so I MAY be able to meet and trade in person to avoid shipping for both of us.

    For me I would want the brick as a brick...I have a small analog photo store, so it would be perfect for a display. If you need to split it up, I understand.

    Doesn't the old pan f have really bad latent image failure? Do the rolls even come out anymore?

    I agree it's hard to trade off film like that that is unused.

    Would you take any nitrate film? :smile:

    The film actually does pretty well. I bought it frozen from a pro studio. I just checked and the two bricks I have left expired in 1985 and 1986.

    This photo was taken on the Ilford and I have better. Taken with an RB67 and 90mm Sekor C. Back was a Graflex RH-12.

    Anyways, I'm not sure how much I'd be down for a trade. The Ilford I have is very reliable. I'm not sure how confident I'd be shooting on Nitrate film. Send me a PM if you wanna discuss it more.
