Do gelatin filter decay/lose quality over time?/ I have bought an old unopened packet, the filter gel is in pristine condition. Should I be worried about the aging that has taken place (to my eyes I cannot see any?}
. thanks,.

have you ever experienced the actual "colour," warping or degrading - so it throws its compensation out of the window?

I have had a look and it still seems quite malleable..../
