    Default Expired Film

    Hi Everyone, I am curious about expired film which I noticed that some are specially buying it.

    Is there something different besides being cheaper? I thought that expired film would probably gives poor result. Am I wrong? Or is there special treatment during developing?

    It is also good for cross-processing where you can get weird color effect.

    expired just refers to the recommended date for processing is over, nothing to do with the type of film, B&W, Slide, I/R etc..

    anyway, sharing an experience I had while shooting with my film cam.. had a few ppl ask me "B&W one arh?" when I told them its a film SLR..

    edit: think I get what you are trying to say.. for expired colour film, the colours would be different.. not really sure what effect expired B&W film has though..
