    I'm more like a careful HIE user

    I still have a roll or two of 35mm, and about 21 out of a box of 25 4x5 left. There are a few rolls of pre Harman Ilford SFX in 120 as well solidly frozen, waiting for their turn to shine.

    I use them as an alternate to pan film exposures, when i think the wood effect or portraiture effect will show well.

    I'm not sure how many years I can stretch the desire to use it slowly before the effect of the sensituving dye fades, and I am left with a coarse grainy ordinary pan neg stock.
