    Container? As in a shipping container? How big is this box? Cool shot!

    I think I've got that many waiting to be processed.

    I'd say the container was very approximately 1m cubed. It was sat next to the machine that puts the foil wrapper on so presumably it had just come from the nearby 120 rolling machine.

    I want that box! I've put nearly 20 rolls of 120 size HP5 through my Mamiya 6 in the last two months. About time to order another batch.

    Make archival fiber prints of this and sell them. You'd make millions:D

    Of course I used HP5+ in my Olympus mju II, what else! A fibre print is on my to do list but only to put up in my darkroom.

    are the rolls on the left stuck to the side or in mid air dropping into the bin?

    They appear to be on little "ledges." I'm guessing it is a conveyer belt or some sort of drum on the left that is scooping them up on the production line.

    I'm glad you didn't use flash on that close up shot... Lol
