I have some Ilford MG III glossy 8x10 RC that is old, but works fine. I probably have about 75 sheets. I think I also have some 11x14 glossy MG IV RC that is newer. I probably have at least 25 sheets of that, and maybe more. I don't know how I got these, but I know I don't ever print on glossy RC unless I am trying to get rid of it. Drop me a PM and we can talk about a trade or something cheap for your friend.

I wouldn't bother with bulk film right now, with the availability of Arista Premium 100 and 400 through Freestyle (www.freestylephoto.biz). It is rebadged Kodak Plus-X and Tri-X, for half the price.
