    2 x 35mm Black and White film questions?

    Hi,
    • How long does B & W film last when half used and still in the camera?
      I would like the option to use up the rest of the roll.
    • Is this a good B & W film to use for general shots Ilford HP5 35mm/135 Print Plus 400?

    Thank you,
    Steve

    As long as the light seals on the camera are good... years...

    Some color films/slide did better when refrigerated although I don't know if B&W was affected in the same way. At least I never stored my B&W film that way. It shouldn't cost too much to have the film processed. Do you have a negative scanner, or would you get the prints printed? Or get a CD of the images?

    Those are all options Cindy... The least expensive option is to just have then developed, scanned and uploaded. They then subsequently send you the negatives in the mail. You create an account, and they scan and upload to your account, and send you an email...when they're ready... They even keep your scans available for a month or two in your account.

    You can also define the scans based on resolution... I just automatically get their highest resolution and then import into Lightroom once I download them... Their highest resolution is the same as my D600 if I'm not mistaken... You'd only need a scanner if at some point in the future you'd want to re-scan one or more of the images...

    Lol...it's been a VERY long time since I had any film developed. This is great info to know, Fred! I had no idea they'd do it online. I don't know if my local camera store does it that way. Whenever the last time was that I had film developed there (many moons ago), they offered a CD and/or prints.
