I can't remember how many rolls I bought, it seems that it was 20 if I recall. Sadly, when I went digital in 2004, I tossed probably 7-10 rolls thinking that I would never use it again.

    Not sure about Fuji, but Kodak Portra is sold in 5 and 20 roll pro-packs.

    Box or not, I don't think there's any film that comes with the little info sheets any more.

    Do you actually need the "little paper" in this electronic day and age when obtaining more detailed information from the Fuji (or any manufacturer's) website re data sheets for Velvia 50, 100, 100F et al is less wasteful?

    No, not really. I just wondered what happened to it. I found the data sheet for my film on Fuji's website.

    If you are buying it with no individual box, it just means that it has been broken out of a "pro pack". As for the piece of paper...I have not seen one of those for a while from any manufacturer. I get them in older film that has been expired for years.

    Fuji sell 35mm Velvia in single rolls boxed but many dealers don't order them, my local pro dealer only sells the 5 roll packs and won't split them, but I console myself that if I shoot more than one roll of a subject all the film is from the same emultion batch.

    Yeah I think most of the companies split pro packs when possible. It's only for films not sold in pro packs (like ektar 100) which are sold in bricks.

    I miss the inserts that used to come with Kodak film with the suggested exposure settings for manual cameras.

    A lot of the boxed films usually have exposure details printed on the inside of the box

    I know Kodak sells TMY in 10 roll bricks (10 yellow boxes in plastic wrap packed 2x5) because I've purchased TMY this way before.

    Lately I've noticed that digitaltruth.com is offering TMY in what they call a "20 Roll Value Multi-Pack". Does anyone know if this is a Kodak packaging (perhaps 2-bricks)? How is it packaged, i.e. individual boxes or a single box with 20 film cans?

    I too like individual boxes as this is the only sure fire way of keeping the expiration dates together with the film without having to jump through hoops.
