    damn ebay

    i just won 10 rolls of konica 160 film. I don't really know why I bid on it, it's very expired and I am not really into the look of expired film. What can I do with it, is it even a nice film? would anyone want to trade something for it? fingers moving quicker than the brain!

    so you have "U.B.S." too?

    (uncontrollabe bidding syndrome)

    thankfully, now I give myself AT LEAST a day to think something over before bidding. But I'm only successful at that 10% of the time .

    You might as well shoot it. Just learn from experience.

    i have tons of expired konica 160 220 in the freezer; very good film. i shoot it all the time, weddings/portraits, at box speed or 125, depending on light. Was your film frozen?

    Can I suggest auctionstealer as a remedy to UBS? It allows you to cancel your bid right up to the last, without anyone being any the wiser. Many a time Ihave had second thoughts the day after!!
