I bought some Velvia 100F recently which had been kept on a shelf in a local store at room temperature (i.e. 15 to 20 deg. C) When I paid for it, I pointed out to the sales chap that the box says it must be kept below 15 deg.C and he said he had never had a problem with keeping film like that in 15 years of trading. The expiry date is May 05. Is the below 15 deg.C statement a "get out of court free card" or is it for real. If it is for real, is it to ensure the expiry date is met, or does it degrade the film quality regardless of how long it is kept for ? Do the delivery Fuji delivery guys use only refridgerated vans in the hotter months then ? This statement which I have only just noticed Fuji state on Neopan 400CN too could have serious consequences for mail order firms ?
