Rather than only showing shots I've taken with expired film, I thought it would be interesting to post pictures of the actual film. The boxes are pretty interesting, and many of these companies aren't around today. I use the film, though most of these are still unopened. I feel like I have to make them last "just in case," though there does seem to be plenty of expired film on the Web. I pay anywhere from $2 to $6 US per roll. Enjoy!
Kodak Brownie 120, Date unknown, probably from the 1930s.
I have two rolls of this. I used one and only one shot really showed anything of interest. If I shoot the second roll, it will be in a very bright, high contrast situation. This was shot in a Fujipet.
Ansco Plenachrome 620, expired February 1952.
Kodak Plus-X 127, expired February 1953. I haven't used these yet.
Ilford FP3 620, expired December 1957.
I shot one of these rolls last weekend. Works very well, I think. Has a nice pitted surface. I used an Ansco Panda.
Ansco All-Weather Pan 120, expired July 1959.
Wena 620, expired June 1963.
High grain, but little corrosion. Shot with a Fujipet, in a hurry I guess (the blur).
Rex 620, expired December 1963.
Rex 127, expired April 1965.
Shot with a Kodak Brownie Holiday.
Perfect Pan 620, expired August 1968.
Shot this roll through a Argoflex Seventy-Five.
Polaroid Colorpack Type 108, expired November 1975. I tried to use it, but the developer was bone dry. Smelled bad, too. At least I have a pretty box.
Kodak Verichrome Pan 620, expired March 1968.
Shot with a Fujipet.
I can't really read the logo, but I think it's Mc'on? But it's Fuji 126 film, expired November 1981. I've used one roll in a plastic Yogi Bear camera, but haven't developed it yet.
Kodacolor-X 620, expired July 1975.
I found out that it's really expensive and takes up to six months to get Kodacolor-X developed, so I just used D-76 for I think 20 minutes. Shot with a Brownie Hawkeye Flash.
Kodacolor II 620, expired May 1984.
Fuji Neopan, found in a Fujipet, expiration date unknown.
There was only one shot on the roll that I could tell was a photograph, because of the edges. I have no idea what it is, but it looks interesting!
I'm always looking for more expired film. Every roll does something different...I enjoy the unpredictability. I'll post more as I buy and shoot!
