    So, repeatedly the fact of being packed in a cardboard box has been welcomed here.
    What benefits do you get from such a packaging?

    New packaging indicates a new batch.

    @miha: I prefer that PE-box with a label. I do not need a second (cardboard box) packaging.

    @piu58: so that welcome was not necessarily to the box itself

    Yeah, I like plastic box with popping lid.
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Holga 120GFN: Amazingly simple yet it produces outstanding negatives to print.

    I agree but roll films are round and a cardboard box makes them rectangular - being beneficial for packaging, shipping, storing, etc

    A very good point. I sometimes go on a weekend or short break with just a good point-and-shoot pocket camera. The freedom to experience the holiday usually outweighs the occasional shot missed through leaving the full kit, with the heavy gadget bag and tripod, at home !

    Well for one thing, my Mamiya 645 backs have holders for the box ends as film reminders, much as many 35mm cameras do. Kodak's move to only selling Tri-X in ProPacks means I don't have the "TX" box tops to put in those reminder holders. Same for Portra and Ektar. I do have them for Ilford films and even my stash of IR820 Efke.

    Roger, I'm sure there is the "TX" somewhere of the Propack box that you can cut out and use as a reminder.
