    Hi,

    I have some very old colour film which expired 92 but has been in fridge most of the time. Obviously the colours will be bad, but will it be ok for very long night exposures - i.e. night sky and star trails???

    The reason I ask is I have no other colour 100 film and wont be able to get any in time, so if it will be no good I will just load the camera with B&W film and not take any night exposures.

    Thanks.

    No harm in trying right? I just went and took a couple of color rolls myself, and one of them expired in 03. And if nothing else it could be used just for experimenting.

    But yeah, I'd just go for it, what's to lose?

    The colors may turn out better than you think.
