    Film is becoming increasingly difficult to find here locally. I know that I can order it from Adorama, B&H, etc., but at this time of the year I worry about it spending two or more days in a very hot UPS truck. Does anyone do refrigerated film shipments, or shouldn't I be so worried about it? I mainly use color transparency film.

    Call and ask for the number for the shipping department. Ask for the person in charge of packaging and ask how the ship film. Order from someone where you feel comfortable with their process.

    I buy expired film from Ebay and I am sure it doesn't get refrigirated at any point on its way to me. I don't think there is to much to worry about. YRMV.
