... is the historical side.

Lately I've been bitten by old film bug.

Some people made a hobby out of collecting old film rolls and boxes (some others actually develop, catalog, and scan them).

I mainly like it from the design aspect (neat to see how box designs evolve through the decades)...

and of course the historical aspect. I mean, there *are* film inside those exposed rolls, who knows what pictures they contain?

I too like Ektar 25. I have about 55 rolls. They have been refrigerated, two 20 roll bricks and fifteen loose ones. I use them in my old Rolleiflex. great film for a fun old camera. :smile:

Any chance you might part with a few rolls? At a fair "old film" price? :smile: :wink: :cool:

Those films look pretty good!
You going to develop them?

Thinking about it, when my current undeveloped roll backlog eases up.
Would you like to give it a shot? I have several as you can see.
We can develop and scan it, maybe fun for a project idea :)

I never thought of collecting the old boxes and canisters. That's a great idea. Adding some to the shelves where I store my cameras would be really neat. I'll start looking around for something interesting.
