Konica hasn’t made film (or branded it) in a decade. The 100′ of Konica Pro 160 I shot through a couple of years ago expired in 2009, and from what I’ve gathered, they stopped producing SRG-3200 a decade before that. There was no date on the single roll of 120 that came in an Ollie’s […]
I recall swearing off film parties last year sometime… I’m not going to look it up, but astute, regular readers (if there are any of you) might remember. But when the FP4+Party rolled around again, I ran to Don’s and picked up a couple of rolls, then came home and loaded one into the n8008 […]
The Canon EOS Elan (EOS 100) is more than 30 years old now. This one was given to me by a buddy who gave up film for digital and left this great 1990s marvel to get all sticky in a box in his closet or something. I protested. “I’ll give you a roll or two […]

Recently, the good folks at the FPP found a cache of 2006-expired Mitsubishi MX-III film. Peel the label off, and what do you have but some nice Kirkland Signature 200! Sadly, there’s no label to peel off, as with the ShurFine 200 I wrote about last week, but given the country of origin (and film […]
Recently, the good folks at the FPP found a cache of 2009-expired ShurFine 200 film. Peel the label off, and what do you have but some nice Kirkland Signature 200. I quickly put a roll through the Ricoh 500 ME, partly at EI 100, partly at 50, and here’s what I found.
