    You might want to test a sheet of two of your stash.

    maybe this is true for polaroid, but it isn't for fuji fp-100c. I just recently heard about deepfreezing this fuji film and I have done a test: there is no problem in freezing it. I put it into a box (tupperware type), cooled it down in the fridge for 2 days and put it into the deepfreezer for a week. then back to the fridge for another 2 days and back to room temperature for a day. perfect results, nothing changed. I'm a member of a french forum. if you can read french, it's here: http://www.polaroid-passion.com/foru...ic.php?t=17430 . there was another member of the forum who did it the brutal way: from room temperature to the deepfreezer and back to the room, same results. at the moment another member is deepfreezing fp-3000b for a month. we will have the results within the next 2 weeks.

    Very interesting, thanks! I've assumed I couldn't freeze it, and I don't have enough space in my fridge for it. I do have a freezer it can go in. I've only got 10 boxes, but it would be nice to keep them as fresh as possible. I'll try it with a box.

    Great to hear, I have several boxes of Fuji 4x5 that are getting old.

    Thanks for sharing,
