    i think i'm going to be doing some surreal landscape stuff this summer, i would like to use ilfords sfx 200, but its being difficult to find, and i'm not waiting 5-7 weeks for it to ship.. anyways, is it worth the $9 each? or should i look elsewhere? any opinions?

    I've got a roll in my Holga as we speak Drew.I expect to develop it this (next?) week, and (of course) I'll share the results here. I have read that this film is not very IR sensitive, so I am using a #25 red filter.

    yeah, i've read it acts pretty much like hp5 when used without a filter, so thats actually kind of nice to have that option, half "near IR" half visible light, in one roll... whered you pick it up? and how much did you end up paying? OH! and i got caught up in finals, so i never responded to your PM. i'll send you a s.a.s.e for that sx-70 film if you've still got it, thanks chris.
