    My favorite colour film has lost two stops

    I spent a few days in Tasmania last week at the Freycinet Peninsula and took along some B&W film for my Hasselblad 500 C/M, and also dug out two rolls of Agfa RSX II 50 from the freezer. I expected a one stop extra exposure would be enough to compensate for the age of the RSX II. I collected the processed slide film today, and was surprised to see that one stop over was usually not enough, and I should have allowed about two stops. The film had a 2003 expiry, so it's probably not too surprising. I just thought I should share this if anybody else is shooting old Agfa slide film.

    Hi Noel, yes the same batch. The last time I used it was 2005 or 2007, and I rated it at 50.

    No worries, Noel. I just found some other ones I shot in 2009 and they are better. So it has lost a bit in the last five years. But I'm not disappointed. There are no serious colour shifts so I am happy with that.

    I have lots of 2002 dated Fuji MS 100-800 120 size and find I rate it at 100 ASA still and it comes out well -- it has been in fridge since I was given it many years ago - all that seems to happen is that the D-Max gets lower so you do not get such 'Black Blacks'. ( That is the effect of fog level on slide films)

    Hmm that doesn't bode well for my 4x5 Astia100f that's been freezer stored, but expired in 2003...
