When a great camera came out, but almost no film that fits was available in the market… I thought, why not buy expired film!
So when i started using this film, i thought it was the best idea ever… what’s there to lose? We have all used expired film in other formats before, right? So I bought 6 Kodak Gold 110 ISO 200 expired in 1993.
Well I wasn’t lucky at all with this batch of films I got from eBay. Although it was pretty cheap, the results didn’t come out exactly or nearly how I expected.
So after telling my fiasco story to a friend, he said, that when using film that has expired too long ago, you should use B mode for like 1 step per decade (how I call it, or like as long as if you were taking a long exposure at night). My film had expired 2 decades ago, so I took the new pictures in B mode, even on broad daylight and counted to 15 seconds or more.
And here are those results.
So altogether they did come out a lot better, but not nearly as good and cool as I expected. It did help me learn something new, so I don’t consider this a complete failure.
Have any of you gotten better results with this film?
