YouTube Ribsy Selling His Own Film


Recommended Posts

Very much a rip off if you ask me. In terms of U.K. pricing, Forma 400 c£4.00, EZ400 £5.50. The only difference as far as I can see: instead of a plastic container for the film EZ400 comes in a recycled bog roll.

Heres one less than happy, yet gullible, customer who ordered 10 rolls without engaging brain. Never again! 😡

I honestly have never heard of 'Ribsy' but can only applaud how easy it must be to get film made for you. Given the retail price he must need to sell it for to make a profit (usually +60% on trade price) the only important question is how many rolls do you need to order from the manufacturer to be 'trade'? But we could all have our own film, ok its Forma 400 or whatever, but the kudos on the Leica Forum when the questions come in 'what film do you use?', and you answer 'my own' and your life is complete! This makes brassing a brand new camera look like a children's game in the vanity stakes.

Another “new” film, I wish!

This guy has designed really nice outer cardboard box, but what lies beneath ??

Some have guessed at Kentmere or possibly Foma (again), but a new film I doubt.

Creative marketing approach, more analog 'buzz', I like that.

A guy called Dan Rubin has posted some initial samples of this film on his Instagram account. Looks pretty nice to be honest.
