After many years shooting Hasselblad for clients, I switched to digital with the introduction of Nikon’s D1 in 2000. After that, most of my film stocks were sold or given away.
Since retiring in 2010, I have dusted off my film cameras and slowly the film stock has been replaced. This box and shelf in my freezer hold print films, mostly 120, but some 135. The oldest is Kodak Plus-X, expired 2002. The remainder is Kodak Portra NC and VC as well as Fuji NPH and NPS.
My mini-bag was on your site some time ago (number 333). Here is my current film stash. I am a bit low at the moment, especially in 120 (which normally has a big Ilford representation). That Fuji FP-100B really needs to be shot soon too but then no more :(
The loaders contain HP5+, FP4+, Pan F+ (you can take the boy out of England…) and Svema FN64 (in the ancient “Daylight” loader – it gets swapped out for a seasonal roll and summer has just ended so I am thinking it is time to try some ORWO). Samples of my current photography can be seen at http://flexaretcetera.tumblr.com/ and unnecessarily sweary observations on more-or-less photographic related stuff at http://flexaretceteracp.tumblr.com/
Your site goes from strength to strength and I hope the JCH empire continues apace!
Regards from Autumnal Australia,
wanted to wand in my stash for some time – changes all the time: film test taken out of freezer and got shot – film gets into freezer…
This is a Kodak only stash…
Well so this is current, as of today:
14 Tri-X 400 135 (one is in the normal fridge for fast retrieval);
