    Photos With the Dead

    Okay, so I know a number of us are pack-rats here. Some of us are just too scared to let go. We drop not-so-subtle lines into other threads about our no longer available films and papers. To the effect of "Well, I'll be going into the darkroom tonight to give that developer recommendation a try with my panatomic. Do you have any recommendations on how best to print it on my portriga?" So let's just get it all out there. If there's a thread in the equipment section about how many cameras we've got and how snazzy they are, then let's have a thread about all the things we horde that aren't made anymore.

    I'll start. Here's my arsenal, in no particular order of importance.
    4x5: Super XX, Kodalith, RSX II.
    120: RSX II, APX 25.
    35mm: Tech pan, bulk rolls of PanX, Kodachrome 25, Ektagraphic (kodalith).
    Paper: Ektalure G, Portriga. I'm still fiending for some Azo X, Y, or N.

    That just about sums up my entire stock of cameras and lenses...

    And I also have Guillemot paper, Perutz plates, Agfa film and HIE...

    Hmmm - this could be an interesting subject for something. Book? Gallery exhibition? Print exchange?

    Could be difficult to find sponsors, though!

    What a disgusting show-off...

    I've got 4x5 HIE, 4x5 and 35mm Tech-pan, 8x10 APX 100, some Ektalure, a few packs of Cadmium-containing Kentona, some Old Oriental G, some Record-Rapid, some (fogged, meant only for lith prints) Portriga etc

    35mm: HIE, Svema 64 (I think I saw a roll in the box recently)

    120: Tech Pan, HP3
    The Kiev 88: Mamiya's key to success in Ukraine.

    Photography without film is like Macroeconomics without reading goat entrails, and look at the mess that got us into.

    I have a couple of boxes of Zone VI paper both VC and grade 2. Plus a box of Agfa Brovira grade 3 fb. I also have a box of Agfa MCFB 8x10 and MCC (which I tried and the DMin is way too high!).

    12 rolls of EIR and 9 rolls of HIE.
    The latter being a nice surprise when I checked the freezer the other day, didn't think I had that many left.

    Incidentally, I watched a single roll of EIR sell for £31 on ebay last week. Not tempted to sell though ;-)

    When the price of Kodachrome 25 started getting absurd, I sold my stash of around 40 rolls from the last batch. It made more sense just to shoot a larger format, if I didn't particularly need 35mm slides--nice stuff though.

    I've got some Super-XX and Ektapan 8x10", 10x10" Haloid Industro as well as 8x10" Gr2 and 3 Azo, and 10 rolls of APX 100/120.

    I've got LOTS of boxes of paper that's been frozen for many years. Every kind. And they all make you look like you've got a skin disease... so says my daughter.

    I'll make any one of you a great deal on them all, just like I got!

    Great post!

    I got burned using some outdated Agfa APX25 not so long ago, so with film I don't play that game anymore. All fresh and available Kodak TX / TXP, and Ilford FP4 (a few sheets and rolls of Foma but once they're gone I know my two favorites).

    With paper, I guess I have a load of Grade 2 and 3 Portriga (thanks, you know who you are) for lith printing, as well as some Azo G2 that I hope to use once I get my 5x7 rig going (a nice Century No2 that I got here for $75).

    Great post, by the way!
