    Double-X 100' rolls Special Order??

    Wondering how much interest there would be among apug folks for getting Eastman Double-X (5222) movie film as factory spooled 100' rolls for bulk loaders. Kodak has expressed an interest in doing this should there be enough demand for this one-time order, there would be about 150 rolls total, I have a preliminary price from the Kodak rep.



    Let me know via pm or email if interested.

    Double-X 100' rolls Special Order??

    I've been getting it from this guy:

    http://www.releasing.net/rawstock/

    I cannot remember what I paid (it was about a year ago) and I may have gotten a 200' roll but at the time I decided on him over Kodak for some reason. Just throwing it out there...

    Kodak Motion Picture Division only sells 400 or 1000' rolls, some of us don't have the set-up for cutting it down to fit into a bulk loader.

    Understood. I just looked up my order from last year that I got from that link above I posted. I got 400' roll of 5222 for $140. I used a large film changing bag and spooled off 100' and loadede into my Lloyds. Just got an Alden 74 that holds 200' and will be using that from now on....

    I haven't set the price, this is the price for a special order from Kodak. Just putting it out there.

    Is there something so special about this film that it's worth that much more than other films from Kodak and Ilford?

    It has quite a following on Flickr & rangefinder forum. I find it has much more personality than TMAX, an older look than Tri-X.

    I PM'd before I saw that price.

    Now they are just getting ridiculous.

    Double-X 100' rolls Special Order??

    If anyone is in a university program that has an eduction discount with Kodak you can get something like 30% off the motion picture films which XX stock is. That is the cheapest film you can get probably anywhere if spooling down from 1000ft rolls. Unfortunately I didn't know this when I was in school.

    I'm shooting down my own 1000ft roll now over the course of two years. It's nice but after while you want to shoot something else. I shoot it at 200 or under, others on rff have pushed it pretty high. It is labeled for 200-250 indoor outdoor.
