Good heavens Peter, thats quite a stash.

Are you thinking of putting any on the market to free up some space? I do keep an eye open for bargain out-of-date 120 and 5X4 film for 'experiments'.

Wow.

I assume that the dates on those on the right are the dates that they were frozen? 1976? Don't you think it's time you used some of that?

If you have any 135 Fuji 160S in there, I'll buy it off you. But not if it's from 1976...

Impressive hoard you have there!

Ever thought of a little stock control?

Thanks for viewing Folks !! The DATES are the expiry dates of the film batches I HAVE used the 1976 but a couple of 120 left still to go -- I DOWNRATE the films for example the 1987 220 size Vericolor III instead of 160 ASA I set 40 ASA and develop a bit longer in my C41 chemicals :
SORRY NO FUJI 160S there in 35mm but I have some 2002 NPS 160 120 size but I USE it ! We had a Pro Studio Photographer from Benfleet Camera Club come to Brentwood Photo-Club and he asked " Is there anyone here who still shoots FILM ?" -- so of course MY hand shot up " But it is all now OUTDATED " I said " So would you like some MORE as I want room in my 'fridge for my BEER" he asked -- so with my Boy we rushed over to Benfleet ( Essex) and he took us into his Darkroom and opened a 'fridge and cleared our LOTS of 120, 35mm and 100ft bulk tins including one cassette of Kodachrome 64 ( !) and a few lovely 1987 dated KODAK Panatomix X and some AGFA ULTRA which is in great demand now especially from American snappers ! All his 120 Ilford Delta 400 has been used up -- I'm gradually getting through my stash ! I found ONE cassette of his 2013 dated Ilford HP5 + but the most 'fresh' I have is 2009.
