I brought some expired kodak 7229 160d and was wondering if I need to rate it any differently. I've read that when shooting expired 400t you would rate it 200t. Does this apply to all expired film or just the faster stocks?

Thanks in advance for any help.

It applies to negative not reversal. I'd just rate it normally reversal doesn't have much latitude to play with.

Does the can literally have en expiration date on it? I was under the impression that film didn't expire. Provided you keep it in the fridge.

I know it gets milky, but can't it last for around 2 years? How is negative different than reversal in this respect?

Kodak 7229 is a negative stock and is 500 Tungsten not 160D.

Kodak 7239 is 160D Ektachrome VNF.

It's processed in the discontinued VNF process & could be very old.

If that's what you have.

Thats the one. Got the numbers mixed up. I'm aware that VNF processing is discontinued but I've found a couple of independent labs that will process the stock fairly cheaply.
I'm just going to rate it normally and see what happens.

Thanks,
Jon.

Shoulda caught the typo, I guess I've deleted most VNF stock numbers from my personal memory bank, had to free up the space somehow <_<
