    I left a Holga loaded with Ektar 100 in a car at +30 C degrees for 2 days; all the shrubs and greenery went blue/purple and my daughters skin looks like a boiled lobster. Not intentional but some interesting looks.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Another vote here for finding expired film. It crops up on eBay with some regularity, although eBay isn't flooded with the stuff. FWIW, I bought some expired (1989 and 1992) Svema color slide and negative film a while back. I've got some of the results posted on my Flickr page. Most of the posts there are from the slide film, but I've got a couple of print film shots early (on the second Flickr page).

    Of course, if the film is too old or too exotic (like my Svema), you'll have a hard time with processing. I do my own processing and am comfortable mixing my own developers, so I managed to do the job with my Svema, albeit with some fudging on a few details. Formulas for C-22 (used for Kodak color print film prior to the 1970s) are readily available, should you get something that old. Most color print films sold in the US since sometime in the mid-to-late 1970s is C-41, which is the current process, so developing it shouldn't be a problem.

    I dont' think 200 degrees will melt it, as long as you don't set it on the metal (wrap it in a towel or something). Then again, IDK! and these other suggestions are probably better
