    It should work just fine, It's kinda funny though, I went down to pick up some film the other day and found it knee deep in dust....Granted it's nit quite forteen years old......just short of ten years old but anywho...

    I'll be perfectly blunt though, I have not shot it yet, I bought it so I had a researve, in otherwords I have not gotten threw the open multipack of the same stuff I alredy had. I am just relaying what I have been told by someone with far more extensive film knowledge than my own so I can't really garentee that my self.

    In fact, I think when I get home I'll take a picture of the box I have, My brother could not help himself and had to stick his finger in the dust :D

    I've been shooting Agfachrome that's from 1997. Should be fine. I shot some Tri-x that expired when I was 4 (1982). Turned out pretty good, considering. Shoot a roll at normal speed and see what happens.

    I have a question guys.

    I shot some film that only expired a few years ago. I went to get it developed, come back the next day and the man working there hands me back my negatives and said he couldn't get them developed. I have the negatives but it looks like the fringes alongside the film are torn. Is that why he couldn't develop it? Or was it because he's just not that smart?

    That is damage to the film from another source, It is very unlikely age had any part of this. However yes, that is why it could not be processed. If they are using the same or similar machinery that the place I go to has, it will not go threw the scanner. If you still have the full neg and a film enabled scanner you should still be able to process them your self.

    Actually expired film can offer some more interesting features and the turn outs can be cool. I bought some 2yr old expired film a while back and the photos turned out fine, and had a touch to them that I liked. This one was on expired film:

    [​IMG]

    This was taken in June of 2006, on film expired in May of 2004. I thought it came out quite nice. On a side note: I do not alter my photos with software in anyway. I don't even own editing software, so good, bad, ugly, how it comes out is how I set my settings. Just so noone thinks I got bad results and photochopped it. :thumbup:
