    Probably not. It's a fairly recent exp. date.

    Where are you buying it from with that date? Your main concern is whether or not it's been properly stored. Should be fine.

    Check the lot#, too. It may be expired due to being from the compromised batch that caused such an uproar over not manipulating properly.

    And here you act like you don't know what to do! ;)

    I don't know this online store, so hopefully you'll get good answers and the stuff will be fine.

    A little bitten by the SX-70 bug, are we, huh? ;) You're doing great with it.

    I bought some expired 600 from 1999. Actually, I didn't buy it, they gave it to me. It was B&W and turned brown and cream. It also took about 10 minuets to develop and needed crazy light to even expose. So in other words. Yours should be fine!
