Gambling with old film

Messagepar 6BQ5 » sam. 20 septembre 2014 / 16:08 pm

Is there any method to shopping for expired film that can still yield good results? I have seen film packs posted on eBay that have expired 15 - 20 years ago. Would that film produce any usable image at?

hello,

are you talking about pack films or integral?

for pack films, 10 year exp is more or less ok. for more years, you have to know how it has been stored, and that, you'll never know.

for integral, i would say 5 years, which means last batch, 2009.

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, I was thinking of integral film for my Spectra.

So, 2009 is it then. That makes for slim pickings!

Spectra seems to age better; I have packs from 2006 still producing usable images. 600 I wouldn't touch anything older than 2009 - but, really for the money just shoot Impossible.

I've never shot Polaroid-brand packfilm but IIRC the color stuff didn't survive as well as b/w.
