question

Does this film have a expiration date ?
Asked by: Anonymous
B&H buys and sells film in bulk. In general we regularly maintain fresh film stock. All of our film is at least 6 months from expiration (typically much longer). Anytime film stock is less than 6 months from expiration we sell it in a separate section and label it as short-dated film and also price it with a slight discount (again due to the volumes we sell this rarely occurs). Unfortunately we do not have access to our inventory to hand inspect the expiration date of any of our films prior to purchase.

question

The product description mentions that this film can be pushed to ISO 3200. Would the results be similar to the Ilford ISO 3200 (120) film, which I use for medium format? I do a lot of night photography (available light - no flash) and was wondering what kind of results I would get with this 4x5 film if pushed to ISO 1600 or even ISO 3200. Thinking of moving to 4x5, but I want to hear what people have to say about the film pushed to 1600 or 3200. Thanks!
Asked by: Bruno L.
HP5 is rated 400, which means it's actually around a 200 ASA film. I use it all the time, and NEVER push it. If you're working with a 4 x 5 camera (or a pinhole) you are on a tripod and should not really need to push it. I believe it is still possible to find Delta 3200 in 4x5, which is what I would recommend if you want to shoot in really low light.

question

First time I've bought film not in a roll. Using it in a pinhole camera. How does it come packaged? Is each sheet in its own lightproof sleeve or is it all bundled in one lightproof sleeve? I ask because I need to put it into 5x7 film holders in the dark and I want to know what to expect. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I have a darkroom with a red light bulb I can dim way down. Should that be okay for processing in trays?
Asked by: Peter H.
For anyone with a similar question reading this 3+ years later, the only thing I'd add for anyone new to sheet film would be to waste a sheet and practice loading it in the light and then with your eyes closed. Same idea as with loading 35/120 film on a reel; learning to do everything by touch and feel will save you time and film in the long run.
