    Crazy local film deal, should I get it?

    I have the opportunity to purchase ~2400 sheets of HP5+ and 1250 sheets of Plus-X in 4x5", in addition to 600' of Ektachrome 100.

    For $99.

    Now, the film is expired. In fact, it's from 1999, and it's been in a garage (so not cold stored). However, this is pretty much enough film to stretch from here to the lunar surface.

    Should I get it? Heck, I'd probably even give some away to APUG people that wanted it.

    If your bills are paid, children fed and you actually have a 4x5 camera... how could you not go for that?

    I'd probably buy it. It just depends what state the garage is in.

    I'm with Eddie - it's definitely worth a shot.

    Where is it? In a temperate region, I wouldn't hope for much...What kills film is freezing, thawing, freezing, thawing, etc. If it is a more constant temperature (or the garage is well insulated), I would be more apt to risk the money.

    Autumn: It was kept in San Diego, so pretty much as good as it gets if you had to keep something in a garage year round.

    Anyways, I GOT IT! Holy CRAP, it's so heavy! I'll be posting a pic soon!



    Final tally: 2400 sheets of HP5, 2775 sheets of Plus-X, 6 100' rolls of Ektachrome 100.

    I think it'd be good to test this stuff out, but my LF camera is at home right now (in another city!). Would anyone be willing to pay the price of shipping (a few bucks) for a few boxes or so of this stuff on the condition they post the results?
