    I'm hoarding film-holders, for example. I don't consider that GAS....could be in denial though....

    But you didn't waste your money. It is still usable, and the price probably didn't fall since you bought it.

    I've got a fair chunk of 4x5 in the freezer, but most of that is out of date odds and sods that I have got cheaply, rather than deliberate hoarding. I have, however, got 100 110 cartridges due to be reloaded with 16mm tri-x and plus-x. Twenty would have been enough to get over the inevitable failures when cracking them open to reload but the price for 100 was so cheap that I did the big purchase. The supply seems to have dried up now so I probably did the right thing but it still seems to be way too many.

    I hoard film and malt whisky, the problem with the latter is: someone keeps drinking it!

    I whored Forte paper in an effort to put off the inevitable- having to learn to use (and like) a new paper.
    I may start buying film in quantity since it has become a long drive to get more...

    "Hoarding" or buying in bulk? Well...when the discontinuation of E100G and E100VS was announced, I picked up about 700 rolls in 35mm and 120 format ("securing supplies," if you will, for a two year-plus project). Generally, though, in order to "write down" the cost per roll, I generally buy my Pan F+, FP4+, HP5+, and Tri-X in 100 roll lots (and will probably do the same in the future with Velvia and Provia). Hoarding? No...not really... lol
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    I wouldn't say hoard per se, but I have a few rolls of Fortia SP 50 that I bought new the last year it was available. I've been told I could sell them for good money, but I prefer to shoot it instead for special occasions.
    Those who know, shoot film

    It is not hoarding if one actually uses it...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
