    This morning I found a half-exposed roll of Kodak Ektar 100 at the bottom of a drawer. Shoved it in the Leica and went for a walk

    I last shot Ektar to see what it was like shortly after it was introduced in 2008.
    Because it wasn't in the box I haven't a clue when it expires. Will it be okay?

    I would venture to guess that it'll be just fine with no adjustment required. Its earliest possible manufacture date would have been late 2008, so it would expire sometime in late 2009, and two or three years maximum sitting like that in a dark, cool, stable environment wouldn't hurt it much probably.
