I've never tried that, and I'm not sure if I would want to to be honest. I'm already starting to get low on the color film, however do you know if you can develop Kodachrome as black and white? Ive got about 20 rolls of it sitting in my great grandfathers fridge.
Sorry but if you want film tomorrow, you've got to buy it fresh today. Shooting expired film does nothing for the film cause.
Who said anything about not buying fresh film? Working through a stock of expired film and buying fresh film are not mutually exclusive.
Seriously? That doesn't seem the case with the OP. Scrounging old film then kvetching about the results is absurd. It's perishable. That's why it's stale-dated.
I shoot fresh black and white, but yes, If I want to keep shooting film I probably should invest in more color film as well
Thank you @limr, I appreciate it, Someone once said to me and I quote "Things get made to get used. Film is made to be used. If isn't used, then it's reason for existing has been denied" I think that is a good quote, what's the point of just letting it sit there and go to waste??It doesn't seem to be the case? Did you miss this?
Again, there's nothing wrong with not wanting to waste a stock of film just because it's expired, and the OP said he does buy fresh film.
And he came here for advice, not to kvetch.
Plus when you have multiple rolls of multiple stocks that have all been stored the same way, shoot one, develop, and if the results are what you want, most likely the rest of the rolls of that stock at least, will be in similar condition! The uncertain becomes more certain that way.Some of us like the uncertainty Not all the time, but sometimes, it can just be fun to play around and experiment a little.
