    matches is safer cos lighter can spoil anytime and then u won't be able to start fire

    yup, actually, that's my question. anyone has use for it? started collecting them again recently and i have about 10 of them now. any idea what does the film developer does with them - throw away? in the past, konata returns them to me.

    for info, i put my coins gathered from my trips into the film cannisters.

    I use them as motor mount for my RC plane..

    Also seen some pple using it as omnibounce for built-in flashes.

    They're good for storing screws etc. too.

    Have lots of them, only the top is not white. It's brown/black mostly. From Provia/Velvia/Press 800.

    I use them to store developed b/w film after they have been through the school's photo lab.

    I put my stray beads in them too. Useful stuff.
