    Hi all, I've been really absent for a while, partly from keeping too busy, partly from some big life changes, as well as moving house. All that together with having no internet access (other than through the wonders of my modern phone!) and online communities have been an almost forgotten, but very much missed part of my life.

    Anyway, long story short, I've got some colour film available for the cost of postage, or a donation if you're willing, or a cold beer if I end up dropping it in to you. I just find that I really haven't shot much colour film in a while, I have some dregs from project-specific purchases, and some I've been hanging on to in the hopes of doing something, but now that I'm without refrigeration to keep them in good condition, I'm probably best to pass them o.

    So, here's the inventory, nothing breathtaking, and most now out of date, but all have been kept frozen since purchase, except for the past week, where they've been living in a dark cupboard in the back of the pantry. The only exception are the Kodak CE & Max films which were rescued from the Kodak offices where they were just sitting in a cardboard box, far from ideal storage, and have no exp on the cans.

    Kodak Portra 160VC, 135-36, exp 05/2011 x2

    Kodak 400UC, 135/36, exp 10/2010 x4

    Kodak CE film, ISO 100, 24exp x8
    Kodak Max 400, 12exp x10

    Kodak Portra 400NC, 120, exp 08/2012 x2, exp 07/2011 x2

    Fuji Velvia 50, 120, exp 09/2010 x4, exp 03/2011 x4

    I've also got a couple old Superia 400's in 120 that have NOT been stored well!

    get in touch guys, hopefully we can get these films out there and into cameras!

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    I wouldn't mind getting a hold of the Kodak Portra in both 35mm and 120 if no one's spoken for them yet. Also, if you can't find someone willing to take the Superia 120 off your hands, I'd really like to see if I can get anything out of them. I shot some long exposures in 35mm years ago and the colours at night along the beach here came up beautifully. An attempt with 120 on the same type of film would be a great opportunity for me.

    Please let me know how much you'd like for those films and I'd be only too happy to send some money your way for them :smile:

    I'll take some Portra in either 135 or 120 if there is anything left.

    Hi Steve,
    I would be keen for the superia 400. recently started home processing c41 and would love to put it through the p6x7. Also any c41 film you want to get rid of I would be keen! :D

    Hi all, will send out PM's when I get a chance this weekend. Shane, I'm actually going to be up your way tomorrow (dropping a friend at Tulla, then have 5 hrs to kill until I have to pick another friend up), if you aren't out camping in the wind, I could pop your films by. I'll PM later to arrange.

    Timing is everything! I was just about to pipe up on this thread to thank you in case you didn't get my pm :smile:

    If you didn't receive it, I just wanted you to know how grateful and appreciative I am for all of the trouble you went to in getting this film to me. Thanks Steve!

    I found a roll I shot in a Clack about six years ago, then intentionally stored in 'in-favorable' conditions jut to see how crappy I could get it to come out.. Probably about time I got that developed hey?
