Is one to two months for those non-pro films ok to be kept in camera? Any specifics on storage?

Should be alright. i've left kodak max in my fm2n for months a couple yrs back, dun think there was much change in quality. Was dumped in a bag somewhere. heh.

U should at least keep it in a drybox, just to keep the equipment safe.

keeping your camera in a fridge??? I seriously don't think so! :nono: film by itself yes, but not when the film is still in the camera. :rolleyes: :blah:

if films can be left in the camera for months, i wonder about the batteries in the camera body, which can potentially cause more damage to your body.

My friend had a roll of C41 B&W film in her camera for more than a year, just developed last week. No problems. Longest I ever had slide film in cam was about 1.5 months, no problems either (Sensia II 400).
