    Now after I get it processed, it won't deteriorate as much right?

    No. As a matter of fact, whatever image you get will last for 185 years as whatever you got.

    That just broke my heart a little, knowing that I can't get this film developed after 2010.

    I shot some frozen PKL 200 some months ago which expired in 1998. And the colors actually came out pretty good. There were no color shifts. However, the film was rather fogged. But overall, the results were quite acceptable, provided the work is not very critical. For hybrid work, the fogging was something that could easily be taken care of in post. And even for analog viewing, it was not too bad. You might as well go for it. I don't know how things will turn out. But they might not be too bad.

    If it were K25 or K64 frozen from new, I think you'd probably still get very usable results. I'd be more concerned about K200, though...IMH experience it doesn't seem to keep so well. I'm just using up the last of my (frozen) K200 from 2002 and there is a slight but definite deterioration in saturation and contrast, although the color balance seems OK. (Actually, it has a certain nice "old-fashioned" look in some bright sunlight shots. )

    No, it's rather true with dark storage in a cool, dry place.

    Good to hear, I don't think I'll be on this Earth for that long. But you'll never know! Does anyone have an example of the fogging seen with this film?
