Expired film on a Saturday (Superia 200/2016)

On a Saturday a couple of months ago in a city, I found myself facing a closed door – it turned out that the local photo dealer had changed their hours, and closed an hour early. Seeing as we live in 2017, you can’t just go into any super market and buy film, and thus I began walking back. Then I meet a couple on the street of which one were holding a bag in her hand with the logotype of a company that deals with all kind of gizmos and tech. Seeing as this company had a store just a block away, I thought it was worth a try.

I entered the store and informed the clerk about my errand of some Superia-film. By the look on his face, I recognized that we indeed live in 2017. He went back to check the inventory, half-way there turning around to say:

Are you sure you don’t mean the FujiFilm Instax?

Of that I’m certain” I answered. Soon he returned holding a pack of 24 exp FujiFilm Superia that in a stereotypical manner were a bit dusty. He informed me that this was the only one he had left, and that it had expired in mid 2016.

“Is that OK? I should actually return these to the headquarters and have them exchanged

I paid the man and left with the rolls. And based on the results below, they we’re just as good as new.
