You need to overexpose old negative stock by at least 1 stop, possibly 2 stops.

How old?


Age & Speed of the stock would be usegul to know & how the film was stored.

FWIW I did once use 5 year old 800ISO stock that had not been in a fridge, exposing at 800 ISO it looked like a snow storm!

and I have used several year old 5289 overexposed several stops, at least two maybe more, and it looked great, not much grain at all. It was stored in fridge.
