    Exposed film storage

    I have about 100 rolls of 120 b/w film that have been exposed last month. However, I can only develop these in 6 months time. Should I store these exposed rolls in the fridge? Freezer? In a cool spot in the room? I'd appreciate some information pertaining to this. Thanks!

    Put 'em in a ziplock plastic bag and stash them in the refrigerator. That's cold enough. The colder environment of the freezer is unnecessary and introduces the possibility of frost.

    Ziploc witha dessicant bag would be better. And when yu take them out leave them in the bag for a day to bring the film up to room temp very gradually.
    Thank you.

    Yes it is but I can't help it. I'm getting a new darkroom set up and I want to get some tests done before I develop this batch of film.

    And my thanks to Walrath and fschifano for the ziplock suggestion.
