    Yesterday I shot a roll of Verichrome Pan in 127 format (using a Detrola camera), expiry 1965 or 66. Developed this morning in HC-110 Dilution B @ 68 degrees for 10 minutes and the negatives look quite usable :smile:

    Verichrome Pan is a very durable film. I've processed rolls that went out of date from the early 1960's to as late as 2000. Most of the time I've had great results. Sometime I find a roll of film that must have really been abused, but most of the time I get usable negatives.

    I end up finding out that the camera is no good to use rather than the film letting me down.
