Expired Film - Revue Pan 21

May 23, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

So, beeing a newbee at shooting with film I started out testing my skills with a couple of expired rolls of film that I got for really really cheap at "One Of Many Cameras" here in Copenhagen.

So, can a roll of film become too expired?

The answer is YES, if you don't store it properly. The storage conditions will surely effect the film more than it's age, so if you keep it in a fridge it should be good.

The film shot here was a "Revue Pan 21", an ASA100 black and white film that expired in August of 1990. Storage conditions are unknown, but when I got it I found it in box on the floor in the store along with a handfull of other expired 35mm and 120 film.

There is a trashed film noir look to it that I like, probably caused by the emulsion sticking to the backing paper in camera or during the development, but it would have been nice if the images behind were more visible.
