Using out of date KODAK VISION2 500T Expression 7229 16mm film
Posted 06 February 2011 - 12:57 PM
Is it worth trying KODAK VISION2 500T Expression 7229 that expired in 2006? Should it be clip tested? What rating would you use if you were to shoot with it?

Should it be clip tested - Would be a good idea.
Reduced rating, possibly, Amount would have to be worked out by tests.

I'm curious, though. Kodak MP stock doesn't "expire." How do you know it "expired" in 2006? There is a level of base fog in a clip test that indicates a stock is too old. It varies from stock to stock or manufacturer.
So I'd appreciate your clarifying for us the method used to determine a stock had expired in '06. Did it fail a base fog test then?

was curious to see how differently they behaved but was pleasantly surprised to see the difference to me was barely noticeable, but then again, I don not posses the trained eye of a professional (although I am trying!).
I'm now curious to see the effects of old UN-refrigerated stock.

So figure it will probably be as grainy probably as bad as 800T '89 was, even with an underrate. Let us know how the test goes. . .
