I have few out (make that way out) dated boxes of Type 55. The developer pods are dry as desert sand. But my skinflint logic says that the film itself should still be useable. After all, it's Pan-X. Anyone tried this? Place a sheet of Type 55 in it's holder, pull the paper sliders, expose, replace paper sliders, go home, develop the film as any other sheet film in, say, HC-100. OR - In a darkroom, peel open the film from the paper sliders, remove edges of perforated film, load into a standard 4x5 holder and process normally after exposure. Just trying to buypass the dried chemical pods.
