    I use an agent to buy stuff, check it, they take their commission, and post it to me via EMS.

    You can do the same with Japan, and get stuff from Yodobashi, Bic and others that only sell nationally within Japan.

    Last shipment arrived last week:

    I haven't tried getting any from Japan yet.

    The above lot came from China by EMS, it's the second lot, I've tested a roll from each lot, and there's no Xray damage. The same as group orders from B&H U.S. we get from time to time.. never had an issue. Not sure why Japan would be different to any other country I've gotten film from? (which is a fair few).

    I shot what I thought was my last roll of 120. Then, I found another. WOOT.

    What's the main difference between Astia 100 and 100F? I developed a lot of 4x5 sheets in a Jobo drum and FujiHunt Chrome6X kit and Astia 100 was curved, whereas 100F flattened instantly. Basically, Astia 100 sheets retained the semi-circular shape of the Jobo 3010 drum. All expired film, but otherwise no colour cast or any other defects. Anyone else experience this with Astia 100 sheet film?

    These are all great shots but I suppose we'd need to see, say, prints of the same scene from Portra or maybe Ektar to see if there is a definable or even indefinable difference

    She actually said to everyone "I want a nice memory of a nice afternoon with my two grandmas while I've still got them, anyone else in the family can come if they want".

    Mid afternoon, I set up the Toyo and tried to herd 20ish people for a few photos (props to anyone who was a 4x5 wedding photog, herding drunk people while you focus is an art in itself).
    I mangled some shots on APX with my Mod54 (first time i'd used it, was too violent and scratched them).
    Some others on Portra were ok, one of me I was blinking.

    But the Astia shot of the missus with her grandmas was absolutely stunning. Scanned and inkjetted to an 8x10 for her xmas present, it's now on display in our living room. Maybe I'll make a bigger one out of it, the detail is amazing, and the colours didn't need any digital tweaking. Too bad there's no way to wet-print these without internegs.

    Sigh.
    Now I'm in the same dilemma as you.
    What to do with the remaining 18 frames?

    (there's a guy on fleabay keeps trying to sell 20 sheets of Astia quickloads for $140. One day I'll stare at that shot enough, snap, and pay that much for them).

    Hah! I have a box of Velvia50 QL in the fridge. I'm considering parting with it, but I don't have the chutzpah to screw someone for it. I'm thinking seriously about selling it, have made a few little squeaks, but nothing solid. I also have three boxes of Ektachrome E100VS Readyloads, but I'll use those, so I'm not is such a hurry to part with them. I'm sure you will find something fitting to do with those eighteen shots.
