The Future is Analog

This post is really just for photo nerds and film diehards... Vania's uncle donated to us his stockpile of expired film this weekend (3 FULL milk crates). Total tally - 626 assorted rolls of 35mm, 110, 120, and 220 roll film, some APS canisters, and 3 bulk rolls (100ft) of slide film. If this wasn't all expired stuff, this would easily top the $2000 range. While some of it was pretty generic Fuji Superia and Kodak Gold type colour print film, there were also an interesting assortment of stuff I haven't encountered much of.

The interesting Kodak stuff:
Kodak Vericolor, Hi Speed Infrared, 'Recording Film', Pantomic X (ISO 32!!), Pro400MC, Tri-X Pan 400, Technical Pan, Plus X Pan 125, and Kodacolor VR 1000.

And the Fuji:
Pre-Velvia Fujichrome (50, 100, 400, and 1600), Fujicolor 1600 Super HG, Neopan SS, NPH 400

I was also quite fascinated by the large variety of different film canisters on display. Some of the old Ilford canisters had shiny brushed metal tops. Very cool. See for yourself.

  1. Wow, that's pretty wicked. Now all you need is a Vivitar wide-and-slim 22mm camera. I got one for free!

  2. I've got the Superheadz version of the wide and slim (the Yellow Peace edition). Found it in the bargain bin at Urban Outfitters for 10 bucks. Not free, but still not bad.

  3. OMG, big collection. I wonder if you are going to have some of them on sales. I have started to collect film canisters recently and can not leave my eyes off this stuff.
    Thanks and hope to hear from you.
