    My ten rolls of 120 turned up in the post today. It's original ISO 50 RVP dated June this year so about a month to go.

    I'm sure it will be fine long after that, especially if I put it in the fridge/freezer.

    Some of it could have been knocking around their warehouse for a couple of years. I'm not sure I'd be happy about that.

    Or perhaps they refrigerate film, that would be OK.

    For £0.99 a roll, I will take the risk!

    I doubt 7dayshop keep it all in a fridge, but I would like to think that there warehouse is air conditioned to avoid excessive temperatures in summer?

    I'm just reviving this thread because:

    1. It is still available - 120 for 99p a roll and 35mm for £1.99 a roll (no more 5x4" though).

    2. I have just had my first roll returned from the lab and it appears to be fine.

    As usual the scan and monitor don't do it any justice at all compared to viewing on a light box.

    Excuse my ignorance on the 120 rolls, have only just bought a MF camera. The price looks amazing, even when converting to Euro. My question is, the product shot associated with the link shows 5 rolls of film in the pack. Is it 99p for all five rolls or 99p per roll. I know it's cheap either way, just curious.

    Thanks

    It's 99p per roll.

    I bought ten rolls which came in two packs of five.

    I'm not sure if they will split a pack but at this price you may as well buy in multiples of five.
