    FS: Kodak Double-X in 135 cartridges

    I am selling Kodak Double-X (5222), rolled into 32+ exposure 35mm cartridges. This is a 250 ISO Daylight 35mm black-and-white negative film. It typically comes only in 400 and 1000 ft rolls for cinematography, but can be developed just like any other black-and-white film. This film is taken from fresh, direct-from-Kodak stock, and spooled into previously-used 35mm cartridges. As this is not an official Kodak product, and does not have the Kodak warranty, I've put a "Rapakpan XX" label on it.

    If you don't know what this film can do, look here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/656147@N20/pool/

    Each roll is $5.25+actual shipping. I ship worldwide, but orders under $50 are at your own risk. Orders over $50 are shipped insured. I accept PayPal, Google Checkout, Check and Money Order. The latter two may result in significant delay in shipment, as I wait until the payment clears.

    *Edit: Forgot to add, I must collect sales tax for those living in PA.

    Wonderful film! Too bad it does not come in 120 or I would be buying a bunch.

    How does Double-X push/pull? ISO250 is right in the range I never, ever find myself in the light for.
    The camera is the most incidental element of photography.

    I've never tried it myself, but given that it is a lower-contrast film when normally exposed, I would expect it to tolerate the increase in contrast from pushing relatively well. The one thing is that it is not a fine-grained film by any means, so expect rather coarse grain when pushing.

    If you haven't tried this film, it's a good one and well worth the effort. I'm still working on my first 400' can - it's a lot of film!

    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?

    Hey, not bad. Before clicking your link I was expecting a Tri-x at 1600 in Diafine look but that has some decent moderate contrast. I have a 400' roll of of XX I've been going thru and might now try it this way.

    FWIW, and not to steal the thunder of the classified ad, but I shoot Tri-x@1250 in Diafine and the look is much nicer than at 1600.
