New on here and for my first post I was wondering what is the oldest film stock you have.
I only ask this because I bought some of eflay. six rolls of Std 8 exp date Dec 1949, the others are around the 1950....1953. I have ran one through a Quartz 5 camera and posted it off to a lab in England. I dont hold out much hope to be honest :lol: but he is going to have a go with it for free for me (nice chap that he is)

Also I have just got hold of a Canon Auto Zoom 814, This should be ok with the new 100D I presume.

Look forward to posting more in future, great forum great find.

I don't have any super-8, but I do have several 800-1000' rolls of 16mm negative in various speeds from 1996. Who knows if its usable or not, but I'm still going to use it for something... most likely an experimental or music video, those seem to have the need for weird stuff.
