  1. Hello,

    I want to buy Kodak Vision3 500T/7219 35mm 400ft to shoot it with my Nikon F3. My only concern is that the film was made in 2010 and stored in refrigerator. Also customs officers in my country are sh**, what would happen if they put the can trough xray? I dont know very much about motion picture and their expiry dates. I wll be very gratefull for some tips using this film, what results to expect due to exp date etc.

    Thank you very much.
  2. As well as I know, refrigerated it should be fine. I have used color film much older, that is kept cold.
    The Kodak standard is 55F and below.

    Airport x-rays are supposed to be film safe, except in a few communist countries.
    If you mean customs other than airports, I don't know.

    TSA is good about hand inspecting film, other countries not so good.

    If it is in a metal can, that should help. But then if they can't X-ray though the can, they might want something else.
