    I have a lunch box full of film the size of the one on the middle shelf next to the ektar ha

    Why must it be kept in a fridge?

    Alex, the thought is that cold slows down the chemical reaction (and therefore the chemical breakdown) of film.

    It might even protect from nuclear blasts if you even for a second believe the latest Indiana Jones film.

    Film that has been ‘cooked’ will have color shifts.

    I go to art school – I have a mini-fridge in my room dedicated to booze and film. Generally it’s all film though.

    Starting to get there, I’ve been buying around 5 rolls a week recently and shooting 3. Slowly building a stockpile of my favorite emulsions incase they go bye-bye

    I’m curious, would the freezer section be too cold for film?

    I have a huge stock pile including 126 film.  :-)

    The title’s a little misleading as this is a fridge JUST for film.
    But I too have some film in the fridge.

    The freezer is ideal for storing film, as long as you let it come to room temperature in its sealed packaging before opening it (to avoid condensation).

    Thanks Alan!

    What is this “Film” you speak of?

    There’s food on the right side (door)… I assume it is some sort of lactic beverage.

    That is nothing NOTHING and I mean nothing on a friend of mine in Seattle..

  • devtank

    I should start by stating that he had numerous fridges for a start -and that only for the film he keeps chilled. The rest of the entire apartment is wall to wall un exposed film. My storage unit has two full refrigerator’s full of film.
