    Don't hesitate with that at all. I've scored some real good deals already. Tri-X is usually 20$ for a 5 pack online in the US. I pay 10$ a pack here, so that's quite some savings.

    Ha ha ha That is really funny. I just ordered 20 rolls of Efke on-line from an outfit in Germany and saved $1.50 per roll even with shipping to the US. You gotta love the internet age.

    Yeap, use it or loose it!
    And the best way to not loose it is to:
    Buy fresh
    Buy often
    Shoot the lot
    Develop ASAP

    Zenit 11, 12XP

    Remember all of those times we swore as long as they made it, we would shoot it, regardless of cost - well, it's now getting closer to "regardless of cost" time.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    If I knew how to bulk load, I'd buy one of those in a skinny minute.

    It isn't tough.

    You need a dark bag or dark room.
    The bulk film.
    Reloadable Cassettes with spools. Normally sold together.
    Masking tape.
    Scissors.
    Marker.

    The dark bag is for taking the bulk film out of the shipping/storage box and putting it in the loader and getting the tail threaded. Once in the loader, you are done with the dark room/bag.

    Keep an example roll handy.

    The tail is threaded through a light trap into a small chamber where, in the light, you use the masking tape to attach the spool and then put the cassette in place around the spool. (Some loaders require the light trap to be manually opened or shut.)

    Next the cassette is stuffed into the chamber much like sticking it into a camera, a door is closed, and a manual winder is inserted.

    Set the counter, I start at -3.

    Crank the winder to 12, 20, 24, or 36.

    Pull the winder, open the door, push out a bit more film tail, enough to attach another spool and enough for the leader on the roll. Cut.

    Shape the leader per your sample. Next.
