    Is this film any good?

    (I know, "go ahead and shoot a roll", I will. I just want an idea of what I am in for.)

    I have a bulk loader with some Tmax 400 in it. It has been in the freezer for 4(?) years. Is the film likely to be any good at this point?

    As for why it has been there for 4 years, the is a longer story.

    No problem. It should be pretty much like it was four years ago.

    If the loader was bagged,should be fine. If not, might be sketch (frost, moisture etc) but yeah, load a roll. As a point of ref, I souped a roll of 1998 120 Plus X the other day and it looked like it just came off the cutter. If there was any base fog, I didn't notice it.

    I would make sure you seal it in something reasonably air-tight when you bring it back up to room temp. to avoid/minimise condensation.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.
