I stumbled across an ebay auction this morning which lead me down a path of frustration.

 

Sellers are now listing products that are more than 20 years old as BRAND NEW stock.  They are not listing the storage conditions,

and I personally feel they are misrepresenting the items and misleading buyers.  I know there are several students that

frequent this website, so I thought you should know - those that happen to read this.

 

Reddit sellers seem to think that $200 for a 400' of 16mm is a "good deal" but don't seem to know that the current list price is $176.

 

Please, if you are looking to buy film from the internet, do some research and know what you are purchasing.
