    Holy crap I have been binging. In the last week I have picked up:

    10x 36exp Sensia 200 $2/roll
    20x 24exp Elite Chrome 100 $1/roll
    30x 24exp "Studio35" Superia 400 50 cents/roll

    I have links for the last two. There is still a TON of the Fuji 15 roll lots and about 14 lots of 10 of the Elite let me know if you want the info.

    Add that to 22 rolls of 24 exp Kodak Gold 200 and one more roll of 36exp Sensia 400.

    83 rolls.
    2,124 exposures.

    I think am set for quite a while.

    My local Rite Aid is discontinuing any and all Kodak and Poleroid merchendise, I too have been stocking up on film....but I am far from done, they still have a few thousand rolls of 800 Kodak film just waiting for me to suck up at half price.

    The auction has ended but I judging by the number of available lots I bet the will be relisted.

    BTW I don't actually have it yet. Based on the picture its not the old Agfa studio 35. The translucent cans are a give away for Fuji. If it is actually Agfa in black cans I receive (I hope) I will let everyone know.

    Link to Kodak Elitechrome.

    Yeah I thought I mentioned that but it was late.

    I only buy expired film.

    The Chromes were all said to be stored in a fridge or freezer. The Superia went out of date this year, so I am not worried about it, it will be going in the freezer anyway.

    I spent around 75 dollars on all of that, comparded to about 370 retail.

    I almost pulled the trigger last week on the elite chromes, they had like 30 some lots when i looked last and now they have zero.

    Guess I missed out. hopefully it gets relisted.

    Umm... Agfa went bankrupt about 8 years ago - almost as soon as digital arrived. It was a crying shame as their films were all excellent. As a sidenote, the original Baron von Munchausen was filmed at Goebbles request on Agfa reversal film during WW2.
