I recently bought a box of old 16mm and super 8 equipment off craigslist and in the bottom of the box were 2 100' rolls of Eastman EXR 200T 5287 Color negative film, 35mm. I have no clue how old the film is and it hasn't been refridgerated until it came into my pocession. I opened up one can in the total darkness of my closet and found it still had the paper and aorund the outside and it felt and appeared to be unused. I don't own a Filmo or have any use for 35mm so here we are now.
I've heard it can be kind of cool to respool and use in a still camera as well as just use it for regular shooting. I'd do a test shot first, just to make sure there is no fogging, but my guess it the film is just fine.
I'd love to trade for any old cool super 8 or 16mm stuff. I primarily need a super 8 projector or 16mm split reels or anything else neat. Let me know if you have anything worth trading or are particularly interested.
thanks for reading my stupid long post.

If I recall correctly 5287 was Kodak's firt low con stock and it was unanimously disliked by DP's for some reason (except Khondji, who loved it) and was shortly discontinued. I think this film is probably around 10 years old.

EASTMAN EXR 200T Color Negative Film 5287 was discontinued in 1996. Any 5287 you have today is quite old, and unlikely to give good results, especially if it was not refrigerated:

A clip test would likely show a buildup of fog and grain due to old age and poor storage.

"Hey Man, I'm not trying to scam anyone here man."
I just got a couple rolls of film that have no use to me that might be of use to someone else. If they fog they fog, No one is going to use these for a ten milllion dollar project. im just trying to help someone else out for helping me out.

Cross post repeat, I just like posting lebowski quotes on this forum.

I'm not being critical of your largesse. B) Just stating the risks of using decade-old film that has not been stored properly.

Again If you want to message me with an email address, I will see what we can do. I could use this to practice loading my camera mag or for scratch tests. They're not worth a whole lot but you already know that so let's see what we can do. Thanks.
