    This morning, I came across a modest stash of TMZ 136 36, dated 10/03. I've always heard that this film doesn't age well, and I'm wondering if anyone has had success with five year old TMZ.

    I'm aware that the only way to know for sure is to try it, which I'll probably do if I hear that others have gotten good results from TMZ this old.

    Thanks,

    Gary,

    I've read that it builds up a lot of base fog, but is alright if you shoot it at 800 speed.

    I doesn't age well and does build up a fair amount of base fog when it gets old. I'd only go as far as EI11600 with it, and wouldn't expect too much.
