    My lazy Expired film (just) thread

    Howdy,

    I know, I should search, but I cannot find specifics.

    I have some expired (by about 6 months) bits and pieces (all Fuji):

    Sensia 200
    Provia 100
    Pro 400H

    These films have been stored in the refrigerator (not the freezer).

    I am assuming that they should be marginally OK. But for How long?

    Cheers

    For a long time. 6 months is nothing to be concern about.

    How about some Efke 25 black-and-white sheet film I found in a closet. It's been there about a year . . .

    I'm using efke film that expired in 2006, so ha!

    still perfectly fine. This box I'm shooting up now has been through x-ray machines(of all kinds) in Mexico, Peru, and Costa Rica(missions trips this past year), also the US.

    still perfect. you shouldn't worry about any of it.

    I got Astia and Provia from 1999(frozen, then refrigerated since 2005), still perfect.

    I found 20 rolls of 220 Portra 160NC expired in 2007, but frozen, on Craigslist for $40. I'm poor, I could use some good cheap film. Is it worth it?

    Offer the seller half the asking price, be prepared to pay full. Be willing to dicker -- two bucks a roll is decent even for expired frozen film.
