    Ordering film during the hot months.

    Is it a good idea to order during the summer? I mean the film will probably roast part of the time during shipping?? We still have about 6 weeks of summer here in Texas and I want to order form B&H. Should I wait?

    If you can wait to play it safe. But you could also pay just a couple dollars more for their 3 day shipping and it will probably travel part way on an airplane.

    You worry, I worry, but do you suppose B&H cares if they need restocking?

    I've been living in Turkey and 8-9 months of the year it's very hot, but it's caused no problems with B&W films over the past 5 years. We need the refrigerator for food so no room for film but I just store as low to the floor as possible (ground floor). That seems to be cooler than the ambient room teperature mid 30's to 40's (°C) at the hotter spells.

    Gave up worrying after multple airport scans and then the heat after discovering the negs and prints were perfect
