This is why I love forums. Whenever I think I have a problem, someone comes along with more than me, and suddenly I feel normal again!

about 2.5K frames altogether, mostly MF 6x6. In 120 and 220 film.
A small amount of that is 135 type film, no more than 400 frames

I'm interested in acquiring 220 film, hit me up

50+ but not in the fridge.
Eastman 5222 is incredibly stable regardless of temperature so I just keep it wherever.

I reckon that survey is far too unambitious. 50+ rolls as the largest quantity bracket just doesn't cut it for us film-doomsday preppers.
I've got
- 125 rolls of 135 colour slide
- 76 rolls of 135 colour neg
- 32 rolls of 120 colour slide
- 30 rolls of 120 colour neg
- 92 rolls of 135 b&w neg
- 9 rolls of 120 b&w neg
(and 36 packs of Instax Mini)
As you can see, I'm heavily biased to stocking up on colour, only because I'm thinking b&w has a better chance of manufacturing longevity.
Since I use maybe 15 rolls a year I've got decades to go before I exhaust this pile, and yet whenever I see a sale, I snap more up. Recently I had to upsize my fridge to cope.
I'm sure even this collection is modest compared to some others here.

I have around 30+ rolls of b&w, bought some Kentmere 400 &. 100 I want to shoot but going through the last of my Arista film as it is expired. I just bought a C-41 home kit because I have a bunch of c-41 well expired color film I want to play with. When it’s gone it’s gone. Oh & I bought 2 rolls of movie film in the fridge I want to shoot also. Has that black whatever it’s called on it.

Remjet. Ick. It's not black and white movie film, correct? I only ask because the B&W motion picture stocks don't have Remjet. You just do a prewash in room temperature water and you're fine. It's the color stuff and Kodachrome that have the Remjet. It needs a Borax bath (before developing) and a few squeegee passes to remove it. If there is black goo left over, it is a pain to remove but it can be done. Any basic solution softens it so you can do your sponge/squeegee right after the fixer before the final rinse. I had to resoak my last roll of Kodachrome 64 I developed in borax after fixing and rinsing because there was still a lot of black garbage on the negs.

Probably 50+ in the freezer.

Combination of colour neg and slide, B&W, all 35mm. Some is at least 10 yrs past expiration, but has always been frozen.

I probably buy one or two dozen rolls a year, so at the rate I shoot, I always have a few years of stock.

As ready-to-shoot rolls less than 100. However, I'm sitting on:

- 4 x 100foot spools of HP5+ and Delta 400
- ~850feet Kodak Vision 500T (original Vision)
- ~300feet Kodak Vision3 200T
- ~750feet Kodak Vision3 500T
- ~500feet Kodak Vision3 250D
- 400 4x5 sheets of Provia and Velvia 100F in unopened boxes in the freezer
- 60sheets in opened boxes 4x5 E-6 films
- 2 unopened 100sheet boxes of HP5+
- ~30sheets of HP5+ opened box
- 11 25sheet boxes of Ilford's direct positive paper
- ~50 sheets of random Dupont and Kodak litho film that I've never tried before.

The Vision1 500T film was a recan from an NBC studio job and I think the can was mishandled over the past few decades and has become significantly slower and has been exposed to all kinds of weird ambient radiation I think. One of the most random pieces of film I have ever worked with:

I recently cleared out a fair amount of old film, but I have approximately 50 rolls of 120 (including one of 220) and over 20 rolls of 135, mostly E-6, in the freezer.

Phil its Kodak Vision Color 50D. Remjet. I couldn’t think of it. I bought it from the FPP store a year ago. I’ve seen a few YouTube videos on how to remove it. It should be a fun film to shoot. I’ll probably get to it this summer. Interesting about your experience with the Kodachrome.

I voted “50+ in the fridge” but it's really half a case of FP100C + a dozen (or so) boxes of FP100C45 + a few assorted rolls of 120 and 35mm that is in the fridge.

The other stash is in the freezer - dozens of 120 E6 rolls + boxes of Quickload and Readyload E6 + a few boxes of 4x5 sheet E6.

Remjet removal can be done but I've found that its difficulty varies depending on the age and manufacturer of the film. I've had very good luck with Kodak Vision3. Older Kodak Vision films seem to have stickier Remjet. I'm currently using about 50g of sodium carbonate (washing soda . . . buying it as sodium carbonate or you can bake down baking soda in a pan at 400 degrees F for an hour if you just want to experiment for now) for about a litre of water at about 100degrees F and shaking the film in reels in my development tanks for about 2 minutes and rinsing it out. The black stuff just washes out. In the case of Vision 1, after the prebath shake and rinse, I develop and before the stabilizer/rinse step I put the film into a darkroom tray and carefully run my fingers over the non-emulsion side of the film in water and rinse off the residual remjet.

I shoot film only for specific projects. And a few for "practice" or when I desire to experiment something different. When I order I can have it delivered home in a couple of days.
Therefore a very limited stock, maybe 10 rolls plus a few polaroids.

I stock up on film when I can get it very cheaply, and then slowly run through it until I need to start looking for discounts again, usually eBay 20% off with free shipping.

In the last month I've picked up 90 rolls of HP5+ in 35mm, to join around 70 rolls of other bw emulsions and 12 rolls of colour, including 2 Velvia, in the freezer.

My freezer has around 80 rolls of bw and another 10 rolls of colour (mostly Portra) in 120.

That lot should last me a few years!

I scoured the world for Acros once it was discontinued and have 450 rolls of that on ice. Acros, to me, is by far the greatest ISO100 b & w film and I didnt want to lose it. I have 200 or so rolls of various other films on ice besides my Acros supply.

I am not a hoarder by nature and don't keep a large stock of film. I can get what I need from B&H in two days. Just in time.

How much? If I weaved it I could make a few hammocks and a complete set of lawn chairs.

I put 6-10, but sometimes it's less than 5.. I'm lucky enough to have a few options as far as buying fresh film that's local (L.A.) so I don't really have to keep my fridge stocked.. of course, if a film I like gets discontinued, i'll buy as much as I can budget and hoard. I still have 3 rolls of Neopan 1600 in my freezer for example..

Right now I have three rolls of the new Ektachrome, waiting for a subject worthy of it, one roll of Cinestill 50, also waiting for an appropriate subject, and maybe 1-2 rolls of drug store Fuji.

Oh, almost forgot. One roll of not-that-far-out-of-date Fuji 1600.

A related question would be: Who has recently bought a chest freezer just for film? I'll start. Me. Slowly filling it with 100' bulk rolls.

I have more film than i need, but have stocked up when the price is right. I have a chest freezer full of film and that can make getting a specific film a little tough. so i wind up just buying more cause im to lazy to dig it out.


rough guess is

120 color neg film 70 rolls. mostly ektar and some portra 400
120 slide film. 430 rolls. mostly velvia 50 and provia 100. but there are 50 rolls of provia 400x and 30 rolls of velvi 100 i was given
220 slide film 110 rolls of velvia 50 and 27 rolls of astia
120 B&W about 1200 rolls mixed of many different films. but a very large stock of tmax 400 and APX 25


35mm

color neg about 50 rolls of ektar and 4 bulk rolls of superia 400 which i got on clearance for a price that was too good to pass up

slide film about 300 rolls of the usual velvia 50 and provia 100
B&W about 300 rolls of various types
B&W bulk rolls about 50 of various films.


again, more than i really need its just when good prices come up, I jump. I have never had any issues shooting expired film as long as it has been stored properly. I always test a roll first and if its good it goes in 1 pile, if not it gets used for other projects.



Keep on shooting

I keep about a ten year supply, rotate & replace stock on regular / still made emulsions twice a year. All of it is kept near or below freezing in two separate refrigerators, one for 4x5 film and the other for 35mm & 120mm.

Alternatively, how much chemistry are you hoarders keeping in stock? Enough to match the 100s of rolls of film?

Me too. Bought the biggest capacity upright freezer I could find. Been stocking it up for the last ten years.

I shoot 35mm to 8x10"
