You all are jest a bunch of 'foos!
Jest, v: to be playful in speech and actions; joke.
I knew that you could store film in a fridge/freezer.. but this question came to mind when I loaded a roll of film yesterday (my third, to be exact)
Should I cool it down before I put it in the camera, or should I keep it at fridge/freezer temperature? Will I notice any difference at all?
Definitely. I usually ate the ice cream in the freezer before handling my films there.
I am worrying my 46mm 400VC films now. This is the best film I ever used (except that there is Ektar 100 now). Does school photography still use this format of film? I got mine before they expired and has since been in the freezer. Now they are 4 or 5 years past expiration. Will more ice cream help?
46mm? Is that a typo for 35, or the width of 127?
No, it's not a typo. It is a 46 mm roll film, 200 feet long. It is for a Camerz school photography camera. I got a camera too. Actually I have two Camerz cameras, one for 70 mm and the other for 46 mm films. Tried on the 70 mm one with a short strip of 70 mm VC400. The image quality came out stunningly beautiful. The final images are equivalent to 6x4.5 format. I shot the test strip under sunlight (not strobe light). It made me realize how good Camerz cameras are.
According to this thread older C-41 (pre 2003?) processes have to be stablized in a different manner, so if you have old rolls processed at commercial labs they are not being stabilized correctly. A good reason not to bother with really old color film unless you plan on scanning or copying them immediately.
