I have been thinking about playing with really old , expired black and white film. I'm talking 1940's and 50's expiration unopened Super XX. I had some success with 1970 type 52 Polaroid. I did really long exposures and the prints were low contrast and a kind of funky sepia. They were very unique. Anyone try film that old ?

I buy old, outdated film whenever I find it and get nice results around 1/2 the time.

I actually shot 2 sheets fo Super XX around 2 weeks ago that happened to be in a film holder someone gave me. One sheet turned out pretty good, except very grainy. However the other side looked like it had been exposed to the sun.

This shot was taken last year on 5x7 Gevaert Ultra Panchro that expired in 1944.
