    Double-X Eastman 5222 100(ish) foot rolls for sale

    I'm seriously overflowing my fridge, it's time to pare back a bit. I'm going to let go some of my stockpile of 5222 Double-X 35mm movie film. It's been spooled down into 100-ish foot lengths (the smallest core that will fit on a split reel is 2", which is bigger than the 1" cores that 35mm bulk still film usually comes on. I wind it just as big as I can and still have it fit in a bulk loader, but it's probably a few feet shy of a true 100...) It's then put into a used bulk still film bag and can, just like you're used to. I bought this new from Kodak and it's been refrigerated the whole time I've had it. I'd like to get $55 a can, INCLUDES SHIPPING in the US (let's discuss postal rates on a country by country basis if you're outside the US) and I have a few cans to sell.

    Full disclosure: you can buy this yourself cheaper per foot direct from Kodak

    but then you have 400 or 1000 feet of it, and need to deal with getting it down to a manageable size for your bulk loader, find cans to store it in, or spool it off 5 or 6 feet at a time in the dark, etc. I've already done all that for you, and this is still cheaper than bulk Tri-x, etc.

    Here are some discussions about using it in still cameras:

    Here is the Kodak data sheet on it:

    Sure - there are probably other even cheaper 400-speed films available as bulk rolls. But if someone is looking for Double-X, here is a way to get it without all the hassle of the 400/1000 ft rolls it normally comes in.

    I'm just trying to pare down my stock and cover all my hassle costs and the ancillaries like cores and cans that are hard to track down; I'm not trying to go into business respooling this stuff. For someone that wants to use a lot of Double-X, I highly recommend just ordering it straight from Kodak.

    Good stuff, I shoot a fair amount of XX, its great in Rodinal semi-stand. A real old-timey grain look feel. I roll it from a 1000ft can I got.

    Fair enough. Question, are the sprocket holes the same as regular 35mm camera film?

    No, motion picture film has "Bell and Howell" perforations, while still camera film has "Kodak Standard" perforations. The big difference is that the B&H perfs have rounded sides, which basically makes no difference at all since a camera is pulling on the other side of the perfs anyway. Somewhere out there must be a still camera that somehow can't cope with the different width of the perfs due to the rounding, but I can't imagine what that would be. Works just dandy in my old manual focus Canons, and every other camera I read about people using it in.

    Here's the Kodak diagram of it from the Motion Picture Products Catalog:

    The B&H and KS perf differences are not important for still camera use, both work just fine. If you're running it through a motion picture camera at 24 fps it can be critically important.

    Yes, when I said "basically makes no difference at all" I was referring to using it in a still camera. Of course it makes a difference for motion picture cameras, which is why it's perfed that way in the first place.
