I bought these films new from a professional photo store in Helsinki, Finland in 2003 or 2004, I think. They were kept in a refrigerator storage (2-6 degrees Celsius). I kept ALL my films until July 2014 in deep fridge (at least -18 degrees Celsius) basically from the moment I got them. Then, as my company moved to a new location I had no more enough deep freeze place for all my films, like these sheets. Inside, where the films have been stored, the room temperature has been ca. + 3 .. 10 degrees Celsius during wintertime (ca. November – April) and ca. + 10 .. 17 degrees Celsius at other times. During January – May 2016 ALL films were well covered outside at ca. -33 .. + 10 degrees Celsius and after that time I moved all my films inside (temperatures as above). Usually, black-and-white film is not sensible at all for expiry dates, as it has no colors to go fishy.

These C-41 (color negative) process black-and-white films are funny indeed. You shoot BW like it would be color (negative) or vice versa, frankly I don’t know. Yes, that is it: I never liked this shotgun marriage. I liked to develop my own films, and especially the black-and-white, with black-and-white chemistry. On the other hand, the darks of these films could get pretty dark.. there were like better films than the normal color negatives.. if my memory serves me correct (it has been a while, you know!).

Well, as my shooting thrust just got bigger and bigger, I needed to get myself a proper developing machine to my darkroom (you think that in that article linked there was a lot of film per once – nope, that was my smallest batch, actually!). Then, finally, I started developing all my films, including slide and color negatives, which I hesitated for a long time.

Kodak announced to discontinue the manufacture of these films already in 2004, though they still have all the specifications available on-line.

If you’re keen on LOMO or HOLGA or other creative photography, these films are just great for you.
Just point and shoot and drop the exposed film to your next one hour photo store – with C41 prosess they go with the normal color negative process but you get your guaranteed different (bw) results! 🙂

I am selling this set in auction, starting 1 euros, with reserve and buy it now 15 euros.

 

Yes, of course I will combine shipping for reduced shipping costs. I urge you to my buy more from me and will be flexible with it. Please note the somewhat expensive shipping costs from Finland, especially if insurance is needed. If the value of order gets to a higher level, I insist on taken an insurance for the shipping.

If you buy this item – please keep it in deep freezer for best results! 🙂
