    hey guys,

    I'm looking to do some trading here for some batteries.

    in particular, I'm looking for 2CR5's right now. The local stores are asking WAY too much for them, and I'm in need of some for a new camera purchased today at the thrift store :D. please BNIB, not opened, and not past-date please :smile:.

    I have FRESH Arista Premium 400(Tri-X) 36exp rolls, whadda ya say (2) rolls for a battery? we each cover shipping to each other?

    -Dan

    Try online sources. Obscure batteries seem to be a huge markup for retail stores.

    You can get these batteries from China for very cheap. They seem to be of reasonable quality too.

    Dan, I've got two Lithium 2CR5s gathering pickle relish in the refrigerator. Holler if you find yourself running out of power.

    I'd be interested in low ASA pro print or slide film in 35mm, 120, or 220.

    TY
