I confess I have never bought sheet 4x5 film or any film holders. So far it's been totally Fuji QL's for me.
The deal is, I just acquired 400 sheets (8 boxes) of Kodak E100S in a package deal, but I don't own any film holders or changing tent. It's expired 10/04 but frozen since new. I am sure it's still OK but...there is the loading the holders thing that I am clueless on.
I can Ebay the film or buy some holders and try it. Frankly I have little confidence that it will work out. Then there's the removing the film from the holders...keeping the light out of it...seems like a real PITA compared to QL.
Or am I just paranoid?
