    That was me, Ann. It looks like we'll have to go by the date and batch number. I have been shooting the 12/05 and 02/06 dated film with no problems. I don't have the batch number for 02/06 film, but the 12/05 film is batch 110448680.

    November?? Don't tell me that, I just bought a case and half of 12/2005 time zero film today. Now I just need to get the darn camera.

    BTW do you store this film in the fridge, or just a cool place?

    Also best to orient the cases so the film is either flat or on end, not on the long side; storage on edge can result in settling of the chemicals in the pod, which in turn can cause incomplete spreading when the print is ejected. Well, okay, maybe you'll like the effect -- but when I pay $1.50 for a single frame, I want to be sure I get to see all of it...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
