    Along with selling all of my Dads camera gear, he gave me some film - it's a little out of date, well a lot actually, Feb 1994 it expired! is it worth shooting it or just bin it?

    What kind of film? B&W would handle the out of date better than color.

    And it depends on how (and where) it's been kept.
    B&W will, at best, have increased base level fog but otherwise should be OK.
    Colour is a bit more 'ify' but may be OK.
    Best thing to do is shoot it and see what happens. As it was free you've got nothing to loose.
