    What would you do with a boatload of expired film?

    I bought a box of expired film recently. In it were approx. 200 rolls of 35mm film that included 40 rolls of Tri-x from 1984ish (lots of fog), 40 rolls of Ektachrome from 1984ish and 40 rolls of HP5 from the 90s. And a whole bunch of consumer kodak and fuji films. But there were some really awesome films too that I will keep and use. Those were original Ektar, all sorts of Ektapress, some high speed konica stuff and some panatomic-x.

    I would use it all, but I don't like surprises. I've been giving it away to other photogs, and they've been pretty happy about it. What would you do with a huge box wildcards?

    About 7 or 8 years ago I threw away a bunch of expired film wich I had kept in the freezer, and still I regret it. Don't know why I did it. A couple of months ago I got a large box of several types of expired paper, and that I will keep.

    So far I've used the paper for creative/alternative work, and I find it really funny.

    With a huge box of wildcards I would use it for some creative work.

    i only shoot expired film.
    process it ( even color ) in caffenol
    with a tiny bit of print developer ( i use ansco 130 )
    who cares if it is a little foggy ... the prints will probably
    have more character than brand new film ...

    have fun !

    ask me how ..

    Shoot, shoot and uh shoot. I shoot any film that I get my gready hands on.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    I'd shoot it, then try my hand at developing it. Just bought my first MF Camera, so I'm excited on learning to develop the film myself.
