    Just a few days too late. I just sold about 10 rolls of T400CN in 120 on the auction site.

    have 15 rolls, 120, expired.

    Hi Scott;

    I'm 99.9% certain I have 15 rolls, boxed, that has been kept in a fridge/freezer since purchased. I looked this morning before coffee; I'll verify tonight if you wish when I'm back at home.

    When I looked this morning, and each box is full and has an expiry date of 04/2003 (not a typo).

    It was given to me along with some XP2 from a professional photographer; I have been using the XP2, but have not touched the Kodak stuff. I'm not going to use it; it might as well go to a good home.

    If you are at all interested; do you have a good 50/2.8 enlarging lens to trade? My kids (20&23) are doing some 35mm B&W; I'm set up for medium format; do have a 50/4, but keep reading about people raving about some of the good 50/2.8 lenses.

    Anyway, it is yours if you want it.

    - Is BW400CN no longer available for sale through standard retailers?

    Kodak discontinued it in 120 size. :sad:

    Last time I was in Biggs Camera in Charlotte, NC, they had perhaps a dozen propacks of this film. I'm sure they can ship.

    If all else fails you could try XP2

    That's true! XP2 is a lot better.

    I've not tried it, but it would have to be better since there is no orange mask, and Ilford designed it to print on standard B&W paper.

    I believe you're correct. I tried both on standard B&W paper and XP2 was a lot easier to print and gave excellent results. Attached is an example shot on XP2.
