    I wish I could believe you, Marc, but their prices and indications of long-discontinued films being "in stock" are way too good to be true. It looks like they're a classic bait and switch joint.

    If you've successfully bought some 220 from them recently though I'd love to hear it.

    Try JapanExposures for 220 film. They seem to have more offerings than other retailers. I've ordered from them and they appear to be an honest retailer. I did a search of EC -- also enticed by their offerings of long discontinued film favorites -- but the reviews were not encouraging.

    Thx tnabbott for the advice. Eastcoast just sent me an email that they cancelled my 800z order because it was out. Now my contax is mad at me.

    I meter off a portion of the blue sky. If there is none, I'm not sure... To make the clouds look really nice, a circular polarizer (for color) or red filter (for b/w) are helpful.
