    Not a problem I've ever encountered. Whilst I appreciate that the OP has specific reasons for not processing film straight away, I usually can't get the stuff in the tank fast enough in my enthusiasm to see the results of a day's efforts. Developing films late at night after Er Indoors has turned in is a bit of a tradition with me!

    I freeze all my B&W Tri-X undeveloped/exposed and unexposed film with no problems at all. Its more a matter of convenience with me so that all my film can be found in one spot.

    Well - okay- I'm being a nerd here - but film doesn't technically FREEZE at those temperatures. It contains very little temperature. It's properties don't really change in the 'freezer' - as far as the film's concerned -it's just at a slightly lower temp than when it's in the fridge.

    oops! I meant to say "WATER" - "it contains very little WATER" - not temperature. Don't know what I was thinking.

    I think the benefit of cold storage arises because the emulsion is organic, and will therefore keep longer at lower temperatures. The image however is contained within the mineral element of the emulsion, so I doubt that there is any change in the latent image caused by ambient temperature changes.
