Frozen FP100c

Postby Livio » Wed 09 September 2020 / 16:17 pm

Well I'm about to buy three packs of Fuji FP100C, expired 2008 but kept in the freezer,according to the seller, for 120 euros. Should I go for it? Any advice please?
Thank you

Frozen? No, never mind.
Besides, it's very expensive.

I have made the test myself, froze fresh fp-100c for a couple of months and it worked perfectly. there is a thread somewhere with the details.

Now, buying it "chat en poche" is not recommended, as you can't be sure when its been put in the freezer (what might have happened to photawam).

and yeah, 40E would be for "fresh" film, that you know works. I wouldn't take the chance with this one. or a lot cheaper. or with a guarantee that it works, refund if not.

AL BUNDY: Yeah, yeah, so were the Indians.

it's possible indeed to deepfreeze this film. we tried it and discussed about it viewtopic.php?t=17430 and also viewtopic.php?f=21&t=28255. the film had no problems except that there was a pink tint to some photos, which disappered on mine after exposing the photos to daylight for some days.

the question is whether it was fresh film that has been put into the freezer...
