Why is it that a roll or two of fresh films brings on a such emotion? I can vouch that it really does as Peter clearly shows in his post. Every time I've bough new memory cards, I've never had such feelings.

There's something about loading and shooting a roll of film. It evokes feelings of care, caution and expectation.

Looking forward to seeing the results Peter.

Best regards

Mr K10D -- Many thanks - yes, you are RIGHT about the excitement after all these years of anticipation of loading a new film !

I love buying fresh film, and that isn't any old film: FP4+ is one of the very best.

Peter, you might need to leave it in the freezer for five years or more so that you can shoot it out-dated
