Expired 120 ektachrome has never failed me and always inspires me to do beautiful things. Does anyone know, why there is much more expired 120 ektachrome then 35mm on the market?

    @klawe well, in general — yes, sure. But al I see on the market considering old ektachrome specifically is 120, not 35mm 🤷 maybe I’m looking in the wrong direction ;)

    The cost of an Ektachrome 120 is less than US $ 7 / €, an expired 135 costs US $ / € 12. I'm stingy too! ;-)

    @klawe that’s a lot for an expired roll of whatever :) if it’s not a roll of a well known adox 😄 I buy my 120 slides in Moscow for 3-6 €, which fits in your estimation well. 12 is probably too much, especially for an untested batch 🤔 where do you buy yours? On ebay or maybe locally from a collector?
