    I have received 2 boxes of Kodak Ektachrome readyload sheets (the seller said they were kept refrigerated).

    I am quite excited at the prospect of shooting yet again with my Linhof camera. However I am pacing myself, just waiting for the right thing to shoot.

    In the meantime, Do you guys know if I can store them in the freezer.

    thanks in advance.

    By the way, it looks like the whole market of second hand 4x5 inch film is based in the US only. which is unfortunate as I live in Scotland. (Did not know that there was custom fees on second hand goods) :sad:

    I keep all my film in the freezer. Boxes of Ilford are triple bagged in ziploks and a dose of silca granuals. Readyloads/Quickloads are hermetically sealed in foil packs, so these do not need to be bagged before freezing. Part used boxes just get kept in a cool room.
