my personal experience is different. no problem with fuji fp-100c expired since 7 years. fresh colors, no problems with the spreading of chemicals. same thing with fp-100b, nice tones, but a bit messy with the chemicals on the peeled off side (exp. 06). but some problems with fp-3000b, sometimes tiny white dots on the photos and sometimes too much develloper liquid, rollers very dirty after each pack of film. I tried exp. 07 and 08 film in different cameras, so it's not a mere question of rollers or batch. all stored in a fridge.
