    Film can be cheap: you can buy 90 meters of Polypan for 30 euros, you get empty film cassettes for free in any film lab. You develop in rodinal 1+100: cost are less than 2 euro cents / frame.
    I don't want to say it is a best film, but cheap it is: more than 2000 pictures for about 30-40 euros.

    Yeah, GAS is pretty much a separate issue. The only thing worse than having GAS with digital is having GAS with digital AND film cameras.

    I can't stop dreaming up ways to buy a new GF670 camera. I used to shoot 6 x 9 negatives long ago and the 6 x 4.5 negatives of my GA645 seem a bit tiny. The GF670 would almost get me back to where I used to be.

    Never heard of Polypan and I'm guessing it is not likely found here in China.

    Still those are good numbers.

    That's cheap, but Ratty is shooting MF, not 35mm. Yes, his shooting costs would go down if he shot 35mm, but he's nuts for a large negative, and so am I. I totally understand his desire for MF.

    If you can't afford to shoot as much as you do I suggest you use a more considered approach before making an exposure, which is what I tend to do when shooting roll film .

    If you don't mind the weight, there are lots of 6x7 cameras on the used market. Check KEH for what they have in stock. Also, I've heard that Bronicas are available for cheap, too, but those are 6x6.

    This has become my approach also.

    It is available in China. You can check taobao. There are plenty of discussions about how to buy this film from China, like this one:

    Also there are a lot of discussions about this film in China online forums, such as this:
