    Take a look - they claim: NOT Fogged - NOT Opened - NOT Exposed! It TESTS PERFECT!
    That's a pretty neat trick to test film without opening the box.
    I've bought from him twice - good service - good product - you get exactly what he advertises with no hidden charges.

    cheers

I think that even if I shot 12x20", I'd probably pass on this and just shoot Efke PL100 (as I've done with 11x14", which I do shoot).
    I agree with David on this. Even if the Super-XX has been frozen and kept in perfect conditions it will have developed a lot of B+F since 1990. A couple of years ago someone gave me a few sheets of film from the same year, which was for sure frozen since it was purchased, and it had developed a B+F of about .45 over normal. It was usable but definitely not something I would recommend for printing with slow alternative processes.

    Personally I would much sooner put my money on a film like Efke PL100, assuming it is fairly fresh. Caveat here is that Efke develops B+F very fast if not frozen, so that even film that is only one or two years old may have a lot of B+F.
