Looks like I've started a heated discussion.
It's good advice about storing film in a fridge and I'm going to be doing that in future.
I don't think I'll bother using expired film after all; it's not as cheap as I thought, and for unpredictable results, it's not worth bothering with.

You could try artificial aging a film for a bit of fun, as freezing makes it last longer maybe leaving it in an oven might be worth a try!!Wink

Good idea! Wink However, the best way still exist! KEEP UNEXPOSED FILM IN A REFRIGIRATOR AT 15C OR LOWER IN THE ORIGINAL SEALED PACKAGE. (c) Fujifilm Corp. Ltd.

I have a dozen or more out-of-date 35mm films if anyone wants them.
Mainly Kodachrome 200, 24 or 36 exp.
Dated 2005, been stored at room temp.
Not boxed but still in plastic tubs.

Postage 3, anything you want to offer above that is up to you.
I'll wait a week, then the best offer gets them.

Thanks

They might have some value as memorabilia (probably more so were they boxed), but they're essentially unusable as you can't process Kodachrome any longer.

Many years ago, one of the reps gave me some sample rolls of some well-within-date colour neg film, which I stupidly used it for a portrait session. This rep had carried her demo film stock in the boot of her car during the summer and it had been well baked. The colours were all over the place and it was nicely fogged.

Cool storage is definitely best!

Sorry, made an error there - I'll try again.

I have a dozen or more out-of-date 35mm films if anyone wants them.
Mainly KodaCOLOUR 200, 24 or 36 exp. (these are print films, not slide films - thank you Steve Charles for saying something that brought it to light)
Dated 2005, been stored at room temp.
Not boxed but still in plastic tubs.

Hi again people

Further to my previous postings, I've now had chance to take a proper look at these films, and can now add more accurate info.

There are:
7 x 36 exp Kodak Gold 200 iso. Not boxed, but I dated the tubs as expiry 2005.
5 x 24 exp Fuji Superior Extra 400 iso. Again not boxed, but not dated either. However, they were purchased in USA in July 2007.

As I said before, I have no use for these films, so if anyone wants to take them off my hands they'll cost you 3 (to cover postage). Obviously if anyone wanted to add a little to make sure they get them ahead of anyone else the little extra would be welcomed.

I'll wait a week after anyone makes an offer, then the best offer gets them.

Drop me a line on here, or email me on johntheminiman@btinternet.com - put 35mm films as subject.

Thanks
John

I was going to pop these on eBay over the weekend, they have been stored in the freezer since buying them new, they are all out of date, but I have used out of date film 9 years passed there use by date, and never had a problem, haven't used my F80 since 2004, and don't plan on using it any day soon, so if anyone wants to make me an offer, please get in touch ....
