    Question Help with film pricing...

    It has been a while since I have been here and I need help pricing some film.

    Holy crap!!!

    Well I would love the two 50 sheet unopened boxes of that ektachrome 100sw haha


    Just go to B&H's website, find the equivalent type film (E6/C-41/B&W) from the same manufacturer, and go with half price.

    The Astia will be popular, probably the plus-x too, the 3200 stuff is probably bad, the P1600 probably as well, but might go for high prices anyway, it's rare.

    Good luck!

    Save yourself some time. Don't bother with pricing this all out by individual prices. Some of that stuff is 15-20 years out of date. Almost all of it is 10 years out of date.

    If a guy is coming with money in the morning, figure out a price that would satisfy you if you had it in your pocket tomorrow night. Offer it as "take it all or take nothing". Don't piddle around selling a couple of boxes here, a couple of boxes there, going to the postoffice, etc. etc. This is kinda like a produce dealer and overripe bananas. If you don't sell them, you might have to throw them away in your garbage can.

    Would you be satisfied with $500? $250? $100? Would you prefer to piece it out? 15-20 year old stuff- 10 rolls for $10. 10-15 year old stuff- 10 rolls for $15. Boxes of 4x5? Full boxes- $10. Partial boxes? Whatever they will pay. Probably as fair and as scientific as anything.

    Remember, if you can't move this stuff, you will be tossing it out. Do you want to put in the time to shoot it, the money to process it (or cost of chemicals and your time) and have the results be substandard because the film is too old?

    Ultimately, it's your call.
