    Well, I will be a few days short but on Oct. 3rd I will be buying a boat load of film! 8 days in Hong Kong, ALL for photography. I need to stock up hard on day 1. I am planning on buying at least 20 rolls of Fuji Reala as well as 15 rolls of Acros, all 120 size. Maybe a smattering of Delta 400 and Fuji 400H for night shots.

    Also 5-6 boxes of Fuji Instax for my son. It will be a veritable film bonanza in our family in a few days!!

    I bought a pro pack of Fuji Provia 100F each of 135 and 120 film yesterday to add to my freezer stock. I love Provia it's very sharp and colourful without being gareish, and I have always preferred it to Kodachrome and Ektachrome.
