    11x14 TriX, thats what I said

    To All Big Camera Users

    FreeStyle Photographic has secured and order of 11x14 TriX. The order will be placed in the next week. The plan is to have some film for stock but not that much. If you feel that you can not live without it then, talk to John Richardson in the store or contact the order desk for order placement.

    Kodak TriX 11x14 10 sheet boxes $89.99 a box

    11x14 Tri-X

    Ouch !!! That's high but such a fabulous film---sure there are those jumping on the TMax 400 bandwagon here but I'll take Tri-X any day over TMax 400--just personal preference and limited use with TMax 400. Hmm! you guys are gonna break me!! Oops I'm already past that!! I may have to stock up on that fine film--just don't tell my better half and hide that CC bill. Thanks for the tip!!

    I e-mailed John Richardson when you first announced it, and he said he would contact me again when they were ready to accept orders. I haven't heard back yet.

    David,

    The information came out friday, John was out of the store then he still may not know. But it is going to happen. 120 boxes of the order are already spoken for. They will stock a small amount over the total order, but that is it.

    J/B

    I don't know what to tell you about price it is more that Tmax 11x by 5.00, but then it is TriX.

    Actually for Tri-X over TMax I consider it not bad at all--I was just throwing in my 2 cents--I have no interest in TMax 400 in 11x14 but Tri_X is whole different story or is that whole different film? Who exactly/specifically do I need to contact? I swear I have some out of date TMax 100 in 11x14 around here somewhere along with some old EktaPan in 11x14---Haven't tried the TMax100 (in 11x14) but the old EktaPan is fabulous--way out of date but the results are great!! A Beautiful portrait film!!
    Thanks in advance

    JosBurke,

    John Richardson for 1, 323 660 3460 (they must have a 800 number) A memo went out to the cataloge order desk about the film. You can try that.
    Found it 800 292 6137

    I also have some past date Ektapan in 11x14". Beautiful film, especially for Hollywood style lighting.

    I was also holding out for Tri-X in 11x14", not being a fan of either HP5+ or TMY. Any idea why they can't sell it in boxes of 25 sheets?

    David,

    I think the person that counts the orders can only do it in base ten. The Tmax order that just finished started out as 25 sheet boxes and is now 10 sheet boxes.

    Ok try this one, Kodak has a bunch of 10 sheet boxes they want to get rid of (and when they do that willbe the end of film)?????? Just be thankful that we can get the film. Storage is going to be a PITA.

    I understand that SEARS has a few small freezers, my wife looked at one and said that it looked like the right size, then she looked at me and said no get the bigger one???

    keep in touch

    50 boxes should make about 8 tables with a couple boxes to spare...

    Look into the cast resin tables that were popular in the late 1960s or so. My grandma had one, it had a thick clear resin top, then a layer with a bunch of "stuff" cast in (in this case, seashells and white crushed marble, contoured to look like the seabed in a tropical locale). I'm sure you could do the same with film boxes, maybe even sell the resulting tables...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Actually 11x14" film boxes are handy for storing sensitized albumen paper before exposure and between exposure and toning, but even for that a few of them will do. That leaves 45 more boxes. I guess you could ship prints mounted to 11x14" in them.
