Hi all --

I found 3 100' reels of 7245 lurking in the back of my refridgerator. The film is a year old and I'm thinking of shooting a short project with these reels. I was wondering if anyone has noticed any issues processing this stock, especially now that Kodak no longer manufactures it. I'm not so much worried about the age of the film (its been properly stored) as chemical processing issues now that a newer 50D stock is available.

Thanks for your help,

Aaron

If properly stored, there should be nothing wrong with this stock. Low speed film ages slower than high-speed stock.
It is slightly more saturated and contrasty than the Vision 2 replacement 7201. It doesn't tolerate underexposure as well.

Processing is no problem, the chemistry ECN2 is unchanged.
