Today we will take you through the story of instant film for instant cameras. We will also share with you the cause of the expired film as well.
When you buy an instant film, the box always labels the expiration date to determine that if you use the film before the stated date, the quality will meet the standard. This standard refers to the color and grain that are not distorted away from the original film. However, it also depends on the storage as well. If you keep the film in a cool dry place, the quality will be better.
The spoiled film refers to an expired film. However, it does not always mean that the expired film will be out of use. It only indicates that there is a chance that the image will not be printed, or even if it is, the color may be distorted (especially for slides) and the grain level may be higher. Hence, you may get an image with a unique and one-of-a-kind filter. In fact, a lot of people like to use the expired film because of its artistic style and lower price. The price of the expired film depends on how long it has been expired. The longer the film expires, the cheaper. The price range is within 30% - 80% of the original price. However, it comes with the above mentioned risk of not being able to display the color. If you like to take chances, it may be a good option! Sometimes if you keep it well enough, it may even produce the proper color just like the unexpired film. It may also give a higher grain as well.
Now let's take a look at the disadvantages of the expired films. Obviously, it is difficult to buy, especially if you specify a brand. There is also a chance that the printed image will be nulled for the whole film pack, which means we may waste our money on it for nothing (depending on how you keep it as well).
