    WOW!

    Hi StoneNYC: I ordered 2 rolls of 46 mm HP-5+ and I'm willing to trade one for one of your 70mm non-perf rolls and the camera. What model camera and what film is the 70mm?.How did you want to handle shipping costs?.

    Nice heads-up. A warning on the box would be nice, although the people who would purchase this special-order film are probably the type not to need it. Sort of how a mechanic doesn't need instructions when buying a torque-wrench

    I wasn't able to participate this year, but your enthusiasm really has me looking forward to next year's special run. There are a few old cameras somewhere in the house I have to dig out and get working, including my first camera; a 127 Brownie that was also my mother's when she was a child.

    One down!!! Yes!!!

    A few to go... Wish I had more than 3 extra things of the old EFKE 127 rolls, would prefer to do all 22 (what I calculated) rolls in one run if possible...

    So psyched! Hope I didn't scratch anything.

    Ilford is the best!

    My 46mm rolls also came today, I wonder if it will be safe to freeze one?

    As far as the packaging, ILFORD has for years used the paper box with the plastic bag for their bulk film. I suspect the cans disappeared by the 1990 era. Even the old private label stuff was in a box. Basically the same type of package as Paper is supplied in.

    The 46mm rolls just have a printed label with the size and the complete address of the maker. And a batch number, no suggested expiry date. I was surprised by the shape of the box, I wonder if they used the same package for the 70mm film? (Stone you have both - care to comment?)

    Same box size, I'm sure that's why it's bigger than last years box, to accommodate the 70mm.

    One of the boxes strangely came in styrofoam packaging while the rest were simply wrapped in cardboard. It's caused a lot of problems with styrofoam pieces sticking to the dark bag and film/packaging. I'm not sure why or what happened, it's just one of 4 70mm had styrofoam...

    Anyway I've put an inquiry in to find out.

    I'm also curious about the storage, since it's not sealed on factory, humidity could have gotten in and might not be safe for freezing...

    Refrigeration is fine, but I've already sealed them in plastic bags as a beginning step while we both await an answer about freezing.

    Popped my lone roll of 46 mm straight into the freezer on arrival. I am confident it will keep well.

    It was more about moisture control since it's not sealed, I hope you at least put the box in a freezer bag first...
