Shooting Eastman (Double-X) 5222 in the Leica

Hi All,

I've recently become interested in shooting Kodak Double-X (Eastman 5222) motion picture film in my new early Leica M2. I know that Tom Abrahamsson, Al Kaplan, and others here have been using this film, from time to time.

Here is the Kodak teaser:

And, here is the technical stuff from Kodak, it comes in 400, 1000, and 4000 foot rolls:

Today I contacted Film Emporium in NYC, they had -one- 400 foot roll of Eastman 5222 "Long Ends" to sell to me, at 20 cents a foot. Cost me 80US Bucks plus ten for Fedex. Not bad at all for 400 feet of retro motion picture stock.

Interestingly, in doing a google search, I discovered that the opening scenes in the James Bond film, CASINO ROYALE, were filmed with Eastman 5222.
