    Have any of you tried it? I just got about 20 rolls of film that expired in 2005.
    I've heard that you can get some pretty interesting results if you know what you're doing.
    Also if any of you have pictures from expired film, I would really appreciate if you could post them so i could see what they're like. Thanks!:D

    The expired film I have used was no different than the fresh film. I just never use expired film for things that I can's reshoot because you never know.

    Same here. I've bought some, just for the deal, but didn't risk it on things or places I'd never see again. Worked fine. Ilford mostly. Once bought a lot of different expired films, 35mm, and it all worked well, color and B&W.

    Guess you never know, though. If it's cheap enough, it's worth a try:lol:

    Good luck,
    J.:mrgreen:

    The film would have to be expired by 20+ years to get any interesting results.

    Heat is films' enemy. Age isn't as bad. If it was kept cold even better yet!
