    I just scored 5 rolls of Astia

    It wasnt cheap @ $52, but I wanted to shoot some before it disappears forever. Provia's skin saturation is too much sometimes.

    Got the last box from this retailer. Funny thing is, he didnt want to sell it when I contacted him. But he caved in at the end.

    I still have a 5x120 box in the fridge, slightly outdated. Prices are on mad levels now, but I think I will rather shoot it myself as soon as spring has arrived and enjoy every single slide I get from them...

    Thanks, but I need to experience this before it completely disappears.

    You mean 5 pro packs or one pro pack of 5 rolls?

    Sure you don't want to trade? Lol

    My three most beloved films are Astia, Reala, and Acros. I still have them (both 35mm and 120) but only use the color film for special occasions. You are wise to grab it and use it while you can! What was once common is now a rare treasure.
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

I don't want to scan them but I guess that is the only way to go. Sometimes progress ain't progress in my humbug opinion.
    Perhaps you can make your own paper
