I have found that the dire 'need' to protect from condensation to be theoretically sound, but overplayed in real life. I give not a thought to taking out ten feet from a bulk roll directly from the freezer. I have had no problems, but I do this quickly.
With traditional B&W film the things to watch out for are heat (do not place on the radiator, ever), but room temp is fine for years. and film speed. 400 will lose speed faster than will Pan F. But even with 400 film months, even a year or two, at a comfortable room temp should pose no problem for either exposed or not exposed. NOTE: I have NEVER in my life seen an honest 800 come from TMZ. (I have seen this seen with Ilford 3200, however.) - David Lyga
