7dayshop were recently selling Velvia that expired from Summer last year, but have now updated the stock with probably the last batch made of the original Velvia (50 asa), dated 11/2007. This stock should all come out perfect, I've bought 15 rolls myself to freeze, since neither the new 100 asa or 50 asa Velvia films Fuji have released aren't exactly the same in look as the original Velvia (the latter is very close but not quite the same). It works out £1.10 a roll if you buy the 5 pack or £1.39 for a single roll, those of you who buy slide film will know how absurdly cheap this is.

Although the postage is almost 4 pounds, most people will be stocking up at this price.

How quaint, and what is this little roll used for? :thinking:

Is this blu-ray or HD ??? :?

Can I ask, out of interest, why?

Because it'll make it last up to around 25 years before the film deteriorates - and Velvia won't stay at this price forever.

Quick call the national museum and tell them you have a frozen fossil, may get a finders fee ??? :-D

Does it get freezer burn like my pork steaks do ???

BE CAREFUL THESE BEST BEFORE DATES ARE PUT ON FOR A REASON ...... I used to work for Klick & have seen quite a few of these 'out of date ' rolls with pics not good ..

Velvia is usually good for about 3 years after expiry when left at room temp before it starts to colour shift or lose contrast, so 3 months makes no difference - I've used loads of these at 8 months out of date and they all turned out perfect. Be sure to keep them in the fridge at least when you get them though.

I used to work for the Klick birmingham lab, before it shutdown along with leeds lab a couple of years ago, I'm pretty sure out of date film was the least of the processing problems, lab reports were always fun :oops:

I've never heard about putting the film in the freezer, I figured that would make the film tighten too much and crack? When I used to use film it was in the fridge at about 4degrees, and never had any problems.

Velvia is awesome aswell...

'tis a very niche product, so don't expect too much heat.

Have some from me though!!!

Wow, thought they were still in production? heat added
