Anyone know how long it's lasting these days? I've gotten back into film photography using 120 film and I'm having a great time. I'd pretty much forgotten the fun of the challenge when you had to get your good shots on just a few rolls of 120 film. It tends to slow me down, makes me think about the composition and lighting long and hard before pressing the button on the camera. I'm finding that my "good enough to print" ratio is much higher with film. I'm also thrilled with how nice the color looks, IMHO this is an area where digital has a long way to go in catching up. I know, I know, there are many downsides to film versus digital, but I can still love film for what it's great at, and use digital for what it's great at. Anyway, I've been using Velvia 50 or 100 (thank you to Fuji for making Velvia 50 again!!). Any guesses on the shelf life of this film once exposed/developed? In looking back at slides taken by family members from the 70s and 80s, it's a real mixed bag, a lot of them looking badly faded after a few years. Presumably the standard drug store processing might be to blame for the bad ones, but clearly color doesn't stand up as well as black and white in my experience and I'm wondering how critical it is that I make archival scans of them.
