    Fujifilm RDPIII 100F 4x5 Quickload Provia with an expiration of 4/2005.

    Is this still good, and if so, what would you expect 5 boxes (100 sheets) to cost?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been shooting some from right around that date recently.
    It is fine but I bought it fresh and it went DIRECTLY into the freezer.

    No way to tell with what you're talking about until you try it.

    I have some velvia from the same vintage that Im hoping is okay but I expect some shift from that.

    See if you can get a box to try first.

    If it was frozen, it should be perfect.

    If it was refrigerated, it will be fine for all but the most critical tasks

    If it was stored at room temp, expect a slight magenta cast and a slight loss in DMAX.
