    At last we have some SUNSHINE here in darkest Essex (UK) so I loaded some 30 year old Kodak Ektar 25 I found in my fridge and tried it out -- here is one 'Street Photo' taken with the second half after cutting it and using my 1975 Asahi Pentax KX with a 135mm f2.8 Vivitar lens -- I got 1/250 at f5.6 in the bright light and processed for longer in well-used C41 developer. Scan was a bit 'blue' but I corrected in PhotoShop 7 'Levels' just as I would in the darkroom doing an RA4 colour print.

    Nice. I have a 120 roll, probably 20 years old taking up space in the freezer. Good to know it should be OK.
