    Is this old film any good?

    Several years ago, my brother sent several rolls of film that he had kept frozen to me REI Opticolor 200 135-24 Color Print film, process before 7/94. I tried it out in the WideLux F7 that I bought a couple of weeks ago. Do the photos that I took today look ok? I had to rush to get it processed before the film became out of date!

    They look fine to me. Are there some vertical bands of darker density on the second picture?

    The WideLux F7 may need the lens housing exercised more to get rid of the banding, or I may send it in for a CLA.

    Film looks ok but the camera does need to be serviced. Try Joe at Tempe camera repair. He is a master camera repairman and has lots of spare parts for the widelux 35 & 120 cameras. I have the Widelux 1500 which is the medium format version of that camera which I just had serviced and it is for sale if anyone is interested. They are great cameras and very easy to use. I also have the Noblex 120 version which I am using.

    Would you give me the contact information for Tempe Camera Repair please. I do not want to go to the wrong place.

    Sorry, I just rotate my eyeballs around the pupil axis, but if you can't then each to their own.

    The film should have been rotated every couple of years in the freezer. That would have allowed it to produce images that are viewable horizontally.
    I think you can fix that in Photoshop though, at least so I've heard.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
