No problem.
Good to see it being used.
The amount of film ending their days in a landfill site doesn't bear thinking about, such a waste.

Yes, I have tested a 2010 one -- it;s about 125 ASA instead of 200 ASA due to the age and storage - they are now safely in a freezer !

Sorry to butt in etc....but what about film that has been used and a year or 2 old but not processed, is it worth paying to get them processed??
I can't even remember what they are of now!

If you cant remember what they are of then maybe not, There will be that element of doubt only cured by handing it in to a lab. The results are in the lap of the gods but you may be lucky.

Why do people leave it so long before they get film processed ? The 'Latent Image' will probably have 'regressed' so they will look as though they have been under=exposed and there will be a Magenta colour cast ( if Colour Film ) B&W films will also give 'thin' negatives and low in contrast .

Some high profile photographers have been known to not process film for months, a year or more in order to be able to approach the images with complete objectivity and without the emotion of shooting the scenes clouding their judgement when editing.

That was why I never got on with film, would take the film out & forget to get it processed..it was such a faff.
I would end up taking 2 or 3 years worth to get developed in one go.

Might be. I found a film in a drawer once - turned out to be my wedding & honeymoon shots.
