    Unusual ULF film on eBay

    I know many hate to see people post about "hidden" gems on eBay, but so be it. How often do you see Super XX in 12x20?

    I have absolutely no connection to the auction. Just wish I had a 12x20 and a lot of spare cash.

    Here's another so-called "gem":

    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.

    Yeah, they're always selling this sort of thing (long roll aerial film and such). I presume they've tested some from the same batch, or at least they've sold some without complaints.

    I hope it's not like the pack of 5x7" paper I bought on ebay last week. Each sheet came pre-exposed with a picture of a black cat in a coal cellar!

    It was only £1.50 ($3.00) so I'm not going to bother complaining or post negative feedback.

    Consider it a creative setback to work with.

    I've pretty much stopped buying eBay film and paper. I got some good stuff and some not so good stuff that way, and just decided it's easier to learn to work with fresh stock that's in current production and go with that. 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 have bought some aerial film from him and it's been fine. I agree the claim (and the general add) is a little bit much, though. I've eyed the current ad, but it's probably more LF film than I will EVER use, and I have no more room in the freezer or fridge.

    Hmm - you know if you could find lots of film boxes and bags cheaply, it would be interesting to try his suggestion of buying the roll and cutting it up into 4x5 sheets to re-package and sell. - 6000 sheets gives you 240 25-sheet boxes. At $25.00 a piece you would gross $6000. Not a bad return.
