    That's way too much. You can get 20 rolls of Arista Premium 400, which is Tri-X, fresh, not expired, for less.

    E-Bay has been a bit tough lately, not many film bargains out there right now. Most everyone seems to have a very inflated opinion of what their expired film is worth. I get the opinion that they all think that film, especially Kodak film, has finally gone the way of the dodo and they are offering something precious.

    That's my feeling, too. People try to sell single rolls of "old" film for $10.00 plus shipping. I love playing with expired film, but part of the appeal--up until now--has been the low cost.

    Know your film prices and caveat emptor.

    I think the "good old days" of Ebay bargains for anything have largely passed. I'm a bit of a collector of other (non-photographic) stuff, and there's very little quality material now at reduced prices. And a lot just isn't selling as buyers think more carefully in the present economic climate.

    I'm following prices of outdated BW 70mm film on Xbay and most sellers asking crazy prices for it. For that money or less, you can buy similar, fresh film in 120 format. And Xbay have changed big time in the last 2 years, It's now more of set up stores with "buy it now" or higher prices.

    Ebay has a policy that forces people who sell on ebay to charge more for "buy it now".

    Nothing remains the same forever and E-Bay is no different. Over the years it has evolved from an auction site for everybody to a sales site for Pawn Shops and Antique Shops. There are other options but it remains the biggest game in town for people who need to sell a few things.
