    newbie in film here

    how come film can expire ar?

    how will it affect the quality??? the silver salts on the firm become less sensitive???

    which means new batch fresh from factory will give better results?

    Don't worry, for Max 400, even if you got it fresh from store, still, the film will be grainy any way
