Depends on how old and how it is stored, also if there is processing available for the film in question Something kept in a shed in Arizona will be junk long BEFORE the expiration date, while carefully frozen film can be good for 15 years. The expiration date is more concerned with photographic propewrties, the psyical properties cange much more solwly, so it is unlikly that even film from 1964 (the Dawn of Super 8) would damage the camera, however it would lily not work and the processing is likly not available.
Hi, all... I just purchased my first Super 8 camera and have not received it yet. It is coming with 3 rolls of unexposed sealed film, I don't know the expirations, but I was just wondering if it is still usable... I know I've seen people use expired film before, but is there a cut-off year that before that you cant use it or can you use age just with degradation of image quality... Also would using old film possibly damage the camera???
