    Looks like I'm down to about 208,800 feet of 35mm Ektachrome.

    Jim, what are you going to do with all of that Ektachrome? Is there a 35mm roll film back for 8x10s?

    Glazer's got in some more 8x10 E100G, so I have 50 sheets (8x10) of Ektachrome. They're out now. They still have roll film, though.

    None, I've not used any apart from the short lived Ektachrome P1600 since the 1970's. I've been suding Fujichrome since the E3/4 days great colours.

    6 rolls of 120 64T (EPY). If I had to pick a "best film ever made" it would be that one.

    One unopened box of 4x5 E100SW, expiration 2006 but bought here as cold stored (no reason to think it wasn't, just that I wasn't the caretaker at that time) and in my freezer since, which is going to be loaded into a Grafmatic, well six sheets of it anyway, for an upcoming trip.

    A few rolls of 120 100VS I got with my Mamiya 645 Pro.

    Eight rolls, I think - I bought ten when the announcement hit and think I've shot two - of 35mm E100G, five rolls of 24x 100 Elitechrome I bought here, expiration 5-2011 and frozen since I got it, ten rolls of E200 bought here and also frozen since I got it (forget the expiration but not that old) and eight rolls of expired, spoiled Elitechrome 400 I bought off eBay "we've shot this film and it's fine" but it's crap. I bought ten and tried two rolls. Light, pastel colors and all around expired, old film. I just put the last eight rolls in the fridge (had been in the freezer but my new dedicated film fridge/freezer doesn't have that much room in the freezer and I have it FULL of stuff I think will still be good) after debating whether to throw it out. Finally decided I might try shooting and cross processing it.

    So that's 50 sheets of 4x5, a few rolls of 120, and 23 rolls, 5 of them 24x, of 35mm that I expect to be good, and eight rolls of expired crap.

    Ekta!? Personal experience had it that it was too blue and bold; I dropped it and migrated to Kodachrome 200, I think, back in 1983. Some time around there, memory doesn't serve me that well that far back...

    "If you meet the buddha on the road, kill him!"

    Man, I'm tellin' ya, I've had to put down so many buddhists. Didn't anybody tell these idiot's I'd be packing? Makes me feel empathetic with Afro Samurai. And these guys reincarnate. But they just don't learn the first time around. Nope, everybody's gotta take a whack at good ol' sack-and-stick priest. I set up my 8x10 sack on my three-legged stick, and you know what? Idiot comes out of the woodwork like clockwork. No enlightenment. By the time I enlighten the jerk, he's in Nirvana and reincarnating again. Round and round. Stupid dogma gets run over by my karma. No, wait, that's actually 4x4 truckma. Truckma is better than karma, and then somebody wants me to help them move their apartmentma.

    It ain't easy being flash enlightened and self-developing.

    For the (new improved) price of a 10-sheet box of 8x10 E100G, I bought a 5 cu ft freezer for the basement and stocked it with 120, 4x5, and 8x10 E100G, along with perhaps the last batch of Fuji 64T in 120.
    Should last me until E-6 processing finally disappears from the face of the earth.

    None, I haven't used Ektachrome for more than 25years I preferred Agfa colour reversal films and since Agfa stopped making slide films Iv'e used Fuji chrome professional films.

    Once Kodachrome went away I preferred Astia until Fuji took it away, then turned to E100G which now...

    Sigh. But I do really like E100G.

    I mostly shoot Fuji for E6 these days and the amount is getting thinner and thinner.
    My favorite for crossprocessing EPP.
    The best of all films for this purpose imo.
    This lot is dated 1992:sideways:
