    My freezer is a capicitor???? what about all that dielectric loading caused by frozen meat and veggies? I would think it would be so low q and so lossy that even if it were near a substation transformer, it would have trouble conducting electricity. The big electrical threat is during film handling. A fast move with the dark slide or rewinding roll film too fast would be the biggest problem.
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    I know a lot about capacitors, EMF, all those little things that goes inside an electronic whatever.
    That's how I earn the money I spend in film and paper...
    But never heard about low frequency electromagnetic fields affecting film.
    That would be real news for me.

    If it's constructed of two metal plates separated by a dielectric, then yes, it is.

    Sure. Recycle time will be about six years. Be sure to pay your model by the job, not by the hour.

    I have *no* proof, but I would venture a guess that the film did not change much ... but the chemistries in the processing DID. Even with Rodinal ...
    I've read that at least one European company advertises a formula *very* close to "the OLD Rodinal".

    A freezer constructed with metal as the inside wall and then insulation with metal outside concentrates cosmic energy and the concentration of energy can fog light-sensitive material. A freezer constructed out of cement block with insulation on the inside will not conduct that energy nor will it fog film. Because of this phenomena, I recently built a cement block freezer.

    Main point: you do not want metal on the inside.
