    Now that I have quite a lot of OOD BW film for me to play with, I would like to buy some OOD Color Negative film for 35mm. Just looking for stuff to try. Any brand will do, but I am partial to Fuji Film. Pm me on details on what you got and price please. Payment is by USPS MO. Thank you.

    Check the 'Bay. There's usually loads of expired film on there. Sometimes I wonder where they get so much of it...is there a field I don't know about, where drugstores dump their expired film?

    Yeah, there a quite a lot there. But payments are made via Paypal, and I don't do Paypal now. Maybe they hoard it or something, it's usually the 24exps.

    I don't do Paypal either (I think they're an unregulated scam and refuse to have any thing to do with them). Every Ebay vendor I have asked, has agreed to accept a USPS money order. I think the 'bay prohibits their advertising that other forms of payment are accepted. However, if you ask, it seems to be fine (and they get more money, since they don't need to pay Paypal's fees).

    The mystical field where expired film is dumped is probably not being used any more anyhow...none of the stores around me seem to carry film any more...:-(

    I have some expired Kodak 400UC. It's in decent shape. Not spectacular. 10 rolls. How about $20.

    Thanks for the kind offer. :smile: but I guess I'll pass, 12xps are kinda low.

    Looking for a few more, something like a iso 100 or below. (Fuji superia and the likes)

    I've got plenty downstairs. I'll check my stash later today and get back. I've got mostly Kodacolor Gold 200 36 exp with maybe some 24 exp. Would that be OK?
