I went in to get prints back from the lab the other day where I had used some really old film - a couple Kodak Gold 200 rolls that went bad in 1998 and 2001.
I knew these were probably going to yield 'interesting' results, but didn't expect the questions I received today.
The guy at the lab (who's been doing this film processing thing for probably 50 years - guy has to be like 75) asked me if I had been on a plane with this film, because it looked like it had been 'irradiated'. I told him it was just old film, and that made more sense, but I've been wondering about this ever since - especially because it was the first thing he had asked me.
Has anyone ever had trouble flying back with film, or mailing film back home while they're traveling, and having it get irradiated and fucked up by being on a plane?
Have a nice day, Bluename.
