unexposed film....

    Rummaging in my old camera bag containing my old Fuji gear yesterday I came across seven rolls of unexposed c41 film,four Fuji and three Kodak all minus their boxes.
    The last time I used these cameras was 2005 or 6 so all the films will be expired.
    I tried a search from the info on the cassettes but cannot find what the expiry date would have been.I would guess no later than 2008,so ten years old.
    Now I can`t decide whether to use them or put them on ebay.TBH I can`t see myself working my way through
    all that film.I already have film in three cameras that needs to be finished and processed.

    Any comments?:)

    Stick them on Ebay, make sure Lomography is in the description along with their age. The older and worse stored the better:).

    As Nimbus said , bung it on ebay and call it Lomo .
    I use plenty of old black and white film that's out of date , just expose and develop as I see fit .
    Any colour film I use , I prefer it to be fairly fresh film .

    Just give it an extra couple of stops of light as it's colour film .
    With my out of date film i tend to give black and white film an extra stop per decade it expired ie . ISO 400 i treat as ISO 200 .
    With colour , 5 years over i give it +1 , 10 years out +2 etc .

    Or save money, use your normal camera and throw everything you have learned over the years out of the window!
