    A local photo place has about 6 rolls of Ektachrome Elite 200 that have an expiration date of roughly a year ago. I was thinking about offering him a buck per roll for all of them. I would put them in the fridge as soon as I get them home. Would this be a good buy, do you think?

    I'm not that big a fan of Elite. The better Ektachromes IMO were EPP (ektachrome plus) and the older E100SW series. They also made for better cross processing. But for a buck a roll, why the hell not?

    Granted, Elite's not the greatest, but it scans pretty well. No problem with the age, you think?

    A year? No way. A year in a hot car? That's another story. I'd buy ektachrome up to 5 years old @ room temp for anything I wanted reasonable color accuracy with. Anything older and I'm certain to CP.
