    Cold store Polaroid film??

    I have some Image/Spectra, 100-type and PX-70 film that I would like to store the best way possible. The I/S and 100-type film is expired a couple of years ago.

    Is 7°C in a fridge too low a temperature? Does it damage the batteries? Should I be worried about moisture?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Don't freeze.

    Fridge is fine, but not the freezer.saran wrap and then zip lock bag will help. Be sure to bring to room temp before using.

    it seems as if fridge (not too cold) is o.k., but a nice dark cellar that doesn't exceed 15° is fine as well. I store all my material in a separate fridge in a cellar and I switch it on if and when temperature exceeds 15°. I have a fridge which extracts humidity. avoiding humidity is necessary indeed.

    I keep all mine in the fridge which runs at 4C. I don't stand the boxes on their ends though in case the chemicals become uneven. That may never happen but its my 'just in case" attitude!
