    I'm starting to get back into film photography. I'm looking for a few things, so I figured I'd ask here and see if folks had stuff that they were looking to part with:

    Film: 35mm and 120 - doesn't matter if it's expired. Color and B&W.

    35mm camera stuff: Pretty much looking for anything Pentax.

    120 camera stuff: Looking to get into medium format. If anybody has an old TLR, SLR, or rangefinder kicking around in your closet or attic I'd be interested in talking to you about it.

    I'll probably start looking at processing my own B&W negatives, but won't be printing anything - just scanning them.

    Ben, the site link below is a pretty good source, one of the largest for used gear. B&H used may have some things and local photo shops always have used stuff for sale. The Photo Center in Brick is a good one, link below. My son bought all his digital stuff used from them. There is film on ebay, not sure if I'd buy it though. Try the local photo shops.

    I may have some film. I also have Minolta X700 with lens, 70-210 zoom, 2x multiplier and so on. If you can't use it or want it maybe somebody does.

    Thanks, I appreciate it but I think I'm good on film stuff for a while. I haven't actually shot a roll of film in almost two years now. :(

    I shot on film for 40 years. That's enough for one lifetime. ;)

    I used to work right down the road from one of the last really good film labs left in NJ. Believe it or not I haven't been able to find anything good so far since I've been working in NYC.

    Okay, no problem.

    If anyone else on the board wants it, let me know by Monday, otherwise, into the hopper.
