    Temperature affects on film quality

    I'm just curious about temperature affects on film. I usually store my film in the fridge for the most part but I concerned with repeated cooling and warming of the film. Also, I attend alot of airshows and the gear gets pretty warm in my car, in my bag and for that matter in my hands. Now I haven't seen any issues with a day spent in a hot car but what about longer? I've been leaving my camera stuff in my trunk and was wondering if a continually warm/hot environment would affect film quality?

    Hmmm... I was for 10 days in Florence, the weather had on the average 104 F... nothing considerable happened to the films (I had them in my bag).
    But don't know, I predict it depends on time or something like that.

    I guess for long run cooler conditions help to prolong the film's life. On the other hand I think when in use, too cold will cause the film to react slower.... not sure if this is true.

    Should new film be kept in a refridgerator until use? I know it's good to keep film cool in storage, but isn't a fridge a little too cold and cause condensation?

    NoNo i heard its good.

    I was recently in napples, and my camera kept steaming up when i got outside, and the film didnt come out well at all, maybe it was because of the whether!?
    I like to comply with TPF rules!

    It's ok, Just put the film on the lowest level of your fridge. My dad once left film for about a month in car - he forget about it. It was very warm then, and the colors of pictures were awfull. Temperature damaged it a bit.
