    Is there any rule to follow when using expired slide film? Bought some 2004 expired Provia 100f that was advertised as frigerated/frozen since new. If the film was infact kept frozen all this time, should I even compensate or just shoot a roll and see what I get?

    This will be my first time shooting slides in a really long time. Just got an F5 and can't wait to see how it works out.

    I haven't had any problems shooting well stored slide film up to about 10 years old. I prefer not to push color films due to the color shifts.

    In fact I just processed six rolls from between 2001 and 2005 (but shot this week at box speed) and they all turned out great.

    That'll work. Thanks for the quick reply.
