    Do you have M&Ms in the UK? They sell the candies in a tube that's just about perfect for two rolls of 120. Considering the volume they do the tube must be pretty common.

    Those we get here are to short for two films, they are approx 1½film long :smile:
    If they could store two films I probably wouldn't be tired of M&Ms now :smile:
    What one will do for photography.
    Regards Søren

    I use the J and C tubes and wouldn't go out without them. Really nice to keep film in while out and about in bright, sunny Florida.

    Don,

    I buy M&Ms in bulk and reload. Cheaper that way. Sure, I lose a few to scratches and breakage, but in the end it's still less costly.

    I buy mine from 7 day shop.com They are black medical sample containers with a snap lid that happen to hold a 120 film comfortably. Very useful for keeping exposed rolls dark and dry.

    It would be great if Ilford adopts those tubes for their MF films, I could really use them here in Greece. If only I could buy some from around here...

    Simon, my question is, will all Ilford partners be able to offer those canisters when/if Ilford start to deliver them?. I belive I was first who mentioned those canisters in thread about Perceptol avaliability (thread in which you first time appeared on this forum). I am asking this because I would like not to be in situation to buy canisters anywhere other than atmy Ilford supplier. Can I send you PM with name of my suplier and get your answer specifically for theire situation? (I would ask publically, but jandc could be angry at me again for mentioning competition... :smile:

    Rollei R3 uses the plastic container. It is black and very heavy duty.

    I could buy some from JandC and ship them to you. I was going to get some for myself anyway. PM me if you need this.
