    If the sheet film companies sold empty boxes?

    I don't have enought 8x10 film boxes for exposed sheets. They're harder to come by than 4x5's. If ilford, kodak, foma, efke, sold empty 3 piece film boxes. Would you buy some?

    I would, also in other ULF sizes....boxes are very costly if sold "clean" If they just made some for storage etc it would be cheaper.

    Nope. Those are two piece boxes. I wouldn't put unprocessed film in them.

    I definately would because I am just getting started in 4x5. I am getting ready to start making phone calls to labs to see if they have any laying around.
    I also bought the mailers and extra bags to double bag the negs from Freestyle, but have not used them. I'm concerned with them because they seem to be statically charged. When they arrived in the mail, they had white pieces of paper or something all over them. Has anyone else seen this?
    So I am concerned about dust. I bought them in preparation to send some E6 film off for development.

    I need to get some of the paper I saw mentioned on another thread to keep the negs separated. Can't remember the name of it right now.

    I'm sure once I start burning alot of film I'll be set. Guess I need to burn up some film!!

    I would have loved to have had some when I started shooting 4x5 last summer but it didn't take me long to empty a couple of boxes and now I have plenty so it's not a big deal

    Get some film, and shoot it. That's the best way to clear up some boxes.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I started this thread to see if there would be enough interest in getting the film companies to sell empty boxes since the larger the format the fewer sheets we shoot. I know that there are other methods of storing undeveloped film but i'm only interested in sheet film boxes for the films we shoot. Enough interest may convince those companies to sell us empty 3 piece boxes.
