Expired Roll Film

Messagepar Instant Integral » mer. 23 février 2011 / 04:20 am

Have any of you ever used expired Polaroid roll film? If you have do you have any tips?

I just bought some type 47 exp. 1992 and I can't wait to see if it works. I do know that its better to let it develop for afew minutes (because of its age) instead of 15 seconds like the packs say.

I always wanted to try Polaroid Roll film and I do have 10 Polaroid roll film cameras. I think I might use the 95a. Kinda wish I was older when they still made it. pff

hi instant integral

i will answer you more precisely after my work, but yes, i bought 1992 roll films, and contrary to 1981 ones, it's still working and it's fun.
don't wait too long for the developping (10-15 sec it's perfect)

this is a picture made with 120 pathfinder and the 1992 rollfilms (did you buy them last month on ebay usa, 2 boxes ?)

What about roll film that expired back in the 1950s or 1960s? Would it still work? I have a J66 camera that I wouldn't mind testing with this stuff.

Picked up some Type 42 that expired in 1980; any recommendations for timing or should I stick with 10-ish seconds? Going to fire this stuff in my 700 LC.

Best of luck. From what I remember, polaroid films that expired in the 50s through to the early 70s are usually dead as a doornail. But from the 1980s? I'd like to see what you come out with.

I've been away from this site for too long. Glad to be back.

^I thought so too, and actually used my phone and searched YouTube and Flickr for a bit before buying it at the flea market, to see if anyone had any luck with rolls this old. Surprisingly there are quite a few who have had usable (albeit thrashed) results with even 60 year old stock; it seems that so long as it remained sealed in the foil wrap, and wasn't subjected to extreme temps or anything, it will produce a very faint image.

I'm going to test it on a building this week, and with temps as cold as they've been lately I'll probably just follow the instructions and let it develop for a bit over a minute or so. If it's still a bust, oh well... it was $6.

First shot was a bust but even though I had it in my coat for warmth, the wind chill was probably close to 0*F. Will try another shot later - I'd like to get a battery for the flashgun, too (and not pay an arm + leg).
