My brother gave me some old film he had left over from his hobby photography days. It was in his Olympus OM-1. The camera and film had been in a tin shed for about seven years so it was subjected to high temperatures in the summer and frosts in the winter. The film was about the same number of years past the expiry date. I decided to take the camera with the film in it on a plane flight, so it was subjected to security x-rays at check-in. Because of these factors I was very curious about the resulting photos.
The film was processed at a typical lab and I couldn’t wait to see if any photos turned out. To my amazement the photos were all reasonably OK. I was pleasantly surprised. Sure there was a bit of grain but not a significant amount. This shows the durability of film and the magnificent talent of the people at Kodak.
