    expired kodak products

    share your experiences working with kodak VC NC and UC. I found some UC for 2.50 a roll and i want to try it. I've had no luck with supra but had great luck with 160vc shooting in the bright outsdoors.

    I have always had good results with all of them when kept in the freezer. UC is great for red rock.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I just shot a roll of Ektachrome 200, expired 1997. Purchased off eBay of unknown origin. I was pretty pleased with the results. You can see an example here.

    I have close to 3,000 feet of expired Portra 160 NC in my film freezer. It's non-perforated but I modified a Nikkormat to use it with. I love the stuff.

    Yes it does look good. I bet it was probably frozen all this time because of how good it DOES look.

    BTW... and this is why I am stockpiling color films. I do believe they WILL be entirely usable in 15, 20 yrs if need be.
