unboxing some film from Compania Imago

Compania Imago is a couple of people in Italy that made some new, reusable film canisters out of wood pulp. They had a failed kickstarter some time ago, but went ahead with their project. Back in January, I ordered 2 rolls of each film that they offered at the time, and they finally arrived just last week.

I ordered 2 each of:

  • Polypan-F ISO 50, expired in December 2015
  • Orwo NP7, ISO 400, expired in 1988
  • Ansco Super Hypan, ISO 100-200, expired in January 1964
  • Fuji Provia 400, ISO 400, expired 1999
  • Rollei CN 200, ISO  200, fresh.

I received:

  • 2x Polypan-F ISO 50, expired in December 2015
  • 2x Orwo NP7, ISO 400, expired in 1988
  • 2x Ansco Super Hypan, ISO 100-200, expired in January 1964
  • 1x Fuji Provia 400, ISO 400, expired 1999
  • 3x Rollei CN 200, ISO  200, fresh
  • 1x $7 coupon

Nice!

At time of writing (early last week) a roll of the Rollei is in the FG, and I think I’ll put a roll of the Polypan-F into the LC-A for shooting this week. I’m curious to see what, if anything, the X-Rays that the packaging begged customs not to use on the package did to the films inside. It’s doubtful that anything will show up on any of the lower speed films, and one blast of X-Rays shouldn’t hurt even a roll of ISO400 stuff.

But I’m still curious…
