Worth developing old films
« on: December 11, 2012, 06:25:10 AM »

I haven't used film for some years now but I found about seven films in the chest freezer, mix of 35mm and 120, guessing exposed between 2005 and 2008/9. Do you think these are still worth developing? - it would be nice to do that then sell my film developing kit (printing stuff went some yrs ago for comparatively speaking, not much money)
I have some unopened chemicals I think bought about 2009/10 - can't see why stop bath and fix would go off, but unopened bottle of Paterson Aculux 3 after 2/3 years?

Suck it and see would be my guess.  Nothing to lose running a roll or so through the soup.  Cheap enough.

Look at it this way, the only guarantee that you won't get any images from this film is if you do nothing.

Go for it.
