    Old svema foto film 250(equiv to ISO 320 to todays scale)

    Use it or just take the spool? The intention of it being there from the buyer is to just take the spool. It is long expired and i believe was not kept in a fridge.

    I know about expired film but still, is it worth the shot?

    At least 20? The film was produced around 1980 and after.
    Probably not worth it right?
