    Mixing Film w/Food in a Freezer

    I'm about to purchase a freezer for storing film and darkroom paper.

    In case we also want to use this freezer for some food storage, has anyone ever experienced a problem with storing darkroom paper and/or film with food products in the same freezing compartment?

    Only when the freezer failed and stuff started melting and leaking...

    I quickly got the film out, then tossed the food.

    But some film is sealed, such as X-Ray.
    Vive la révolution!

    Yes, the food takes up too much room. I'm glad i'm not married, wife would bitch about all the stuff in the freezer. I like fresh food.

    She: I can't fit the ground beef in the freezer. It's always completely filled with your film.

    Me: I've told you a eleven million times, don't exaggerate. It's never more than 85%.

    Don't store it with frozen fish unless you have a backup generator.

    You can keep food, film and paper together in the refrigerator or freezer. You will find that film and paper do not cook well and provide neither a savory taste nor healthful benefits.
    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Is that true if you put it in the soup?

    Don't worry about food. There will be no room left for it in the freezer.

    I started out with one shelf in our full-size freezer for film, now I'm up to about half (quickloads take a lot of room) but dare not push further. I've never had a problem - all my film is in heavy duty zip-lock bags of appropriate sizes. My film never smells funny, but then again it's been a long time since I stored Durian in that freezer.
