The Last Batch of Fuji Velvia 50 8×10 Film

If Fuji announces the end of a film you love, what do you do? Why, buy the whole shipment of course!

We’ve all been there. One of the major film companies announces that they’re going to discontinue a certain line of film, then we all go into a panic buying frenzy to try and score a brick or two to hide in our fridge for a rainy day. But for something as storied as Velvia 50 sheet film, a few boxes simply isn’t enough.

One guy bought the entire last batch of Velvia 50 8×10 to the tune of a whopping $160,000. That’s three pallets worth of sheet film that’s good for 12,000 sheets. How’s that for commitment to the analogue way of life?
