IXMOO cassette lust

Hello

I am a poor unemployed student who wants very badly to get my hands on an IXMOO or two for my beater M3. If anybody sees this with a bunch of them and wants to spare one or two, hit me up.

Thanks

I have a bunch of them (not for sale)
Honestly, if you are limited on budget, don't.
they are nice but very expensive.
find a way to get used cassettes from a lab.
Or ask a friend who is developing at home not to destroy his cassettes during processing.
tape your film to the film tip that remains and roll it. Use twice or thrice then dump (scratches)
Good luck

Also, first check if your favourite film is even available in bulk, and is actually cheaper.

Tri-X, for example, is currently much more expensive buying in bulk rolls than buying pre-rolled.

IXMOO's are nice (not parting with mine either), but bulk rolling is a mixed bag.

P&P is an issue even for those not classing themselves as poor.

Cassettes take the drag off the transport mechanism. Impossible to get cassette scratches.

My friend who was a wedding photog used them for all the wedding shots except for table shots claiming the film responded better by not going through felt lips.

Best used with a bench winder to load them and the proper trimer to "point " the film where it attaches to the spool.

But it up to you. 18 rolls from 100 feet.
