    It amuses me how much some people want for film on ebay. I mean, shouldn't out of date film, at the least, be cheaper than adorama?

    I do good buying film on ebay though. A deal can be found, or made. Heck, it's worth asking. Today I picked up over 100 rolls of expired film from my local camera shop all about a 2000 expire date, I asked if they had 220 black and white, he said, no, none in the freezer in the back - immediately, I said, you have a freezer in the back, can I peak? $100 buck later, I cleaned out his freezer and walked out with over 100 rolls of film, about half 120 chrome, third 120/220 C-41 and a 20 pack of 35mm E200. Even picked up 4 rolls of advantax film.

    Nah, not to be processed as B&W. If you were seriously trying to learn hand processing into slides, no small feat mind you, then we can talk.

    I also doubt I would pay $50 for the brick. I did buy it after it was no longer processed, but while 135 was still going strong, for a display. I think I paid $15 or so for it, but I stuck it in my freezer rather than on a shelf for emotional rather than rational reasons.

    I did think seriously about carefully picking the cellophane open and extracting the film for a guy to slit into 16mm while Dwayne's was still processing just to keep it from going totally to waste. I figured I could seal the boxes back up with something in them so it made a convincing display.

    But then my rational thought processing fell apart again, and I kept it intact.

    As I said, I certainly wouldn't buy it for $50 if I didn't have one, but I wouldn't sell it for $50 either.

    120 mm Kodachrome wouldn't fit my camera, it only takes 120 film.

    Well, if you're the one who bid on it, and you're going to be getting it, I suggest you stick in your freezer until we determine a few things. Or the world ends, whichever comes first.

    It is a waste to process it as B&W unless it has valuable images on it.

    Hi Michael,

    For $49.00, I couldn't resist.

    And I guess I'm being optimistic, that the world has a few years left.
    And maybe someone will develop an alternative color process eventually.

    Yeah, although I didn\\\\\\\'t pay that much I bought my brick after it couldn\\\'t be processed either. emotion requires no logical justification.







    It can be processed by hand, although it certainly not easy. Chemicals are the stickler.







    Sales figures seemed to indicate that there see oddels and gobs of it left out there unprocessed, and I thought it would start getting dumped. That would provide material to experiment with. But so far it hasn\\\\\\\'t appeared on the market. At least not in the quantities I expected. I thought experimenters would be able to find a hundred rolls for 20 cents each.

    120 Kodachrome is about as much use as an ash tray on a motor bike.
