    Ilford HP3 sheet film

    I just noticed this Ebay listing that includes two unopened boxes of Ilford HP3 sheet film 4 3/4"X 6 1/2" and thought I would flag it up for anyone who may be interested.

    Wow. I bought a bulk 35mm roll of this stuff a couple of years ago off ebay, more as a novelty because the canister's expiration date is JULY 1963, the month/year of my birth. Curiosity got the best of me and I spooled and shot some. Grainy and fogged as heck even shot at 12 ASA. But interesting....

    The listing does say "H.P.3 HYPERSENSITIVE PANCHROMATIC FILM SAFETY BASE 25 FILM IN 4 3/4"X 6 1/2" 12 X 16.5 cm UNOPENED
    GOOD CONDITION"

    I think that 'Good condition" may be rather optimistic for a film that probably passed its expiry date forty or fifty years ago.

    They should open one of the boxes and fan the film out then take a photo to show what good condition it is. :-)
