    I have this stainless steel 35mm film retriever that's been sitting around my place for years... but I don't shoot 35mm anymore! Includes instruction sheet.

    Wondering if someone might be interested in trading me for one roll of 120 roll film (B&W or color C-41). Maybe two rolls of expired film?

    USA only.

    Thanks,
    Keith Ostertag

    Sorry Eric- it is just too much trouble and expense to ship across the border for such a small item. I did spend some time looking at my USPS.com site and I can't even figure out the best way to mail it to you... since it is not completely flat it would need to be a 'package', and it ain't cheap. These are sold on eBay for around $10-$15, maybe look there?

    All you have to do is put it in envelope and drop it in the mailbox.

    with little practice, a bottle opener will open a 35mm film canister. must be done in complete darkness of course.

    Usually, this method destroys the canister. If you want to reuse it, you need a retriever.

    I also have a lot of 120 film and would be interested in this.
