    ????? is that relevant

    In four days there have been no posts on this forum, perhaps we need some that encourage people to come here !

    If you have no advice then why post at all ?

    Sorry I was simply trying to engage in a post. Not many people use the forum anymore. So when you asked any advice about using film I say simply said that I haven't used film since 1993. Sorry I have no advice on you using film and I won't bother to comment on any of your posts again.

    2 or 3 years ago I re-used film on some of my older SLR cameras after having now used digital for more than a decade. It was an interesting experience to again not know exactly what your printed version would be.

    Do you have your own darkroom? Will you develop your own film?
    That would make a lot of difference on what the printed version will look like.

    As regards the film rolls I remember, when using infrared films (the last infrared filmroll that I used must be 25 years ago or so) it needed to be stored in a fridge. Now it depends on how long these rolls have been in ambient temperature, whether it is still worth putting them in a fridge ....

    So advices:
    1/ enjoy taking the captures
    2/ put infrared film rolls to the fridge
    3/ if you have a darkroom (or possibly get access to a darkroom) and you know how to process filmrolls, that will help
    4/ for infrared films, I think with first signs of autumn showing, can get interesting results

    That is a point thanks for the reminder, will place in fridge just in case, I forgot that, when the filter comes I will allow a day to defrost
