Default How to tell date on Fujichrome?

I purchased a used Nikon F5 and the guy included several rolls of Fujichrome
Provia 100F, and Velvia 50 film. How can I tell the date on them? He said
it was about two years old, but should be ok.

Thanks,
Tom

They don't print it on the rolls, just on the box. If the film hasn't been
keep cool all that time, it probably is not very reliable. I would just use
it and send it off to the cheapest processor you can find (i.e. Fuji Mailers
or Costco).

Ha- I share your sympathies on that, but it could be that special roll
where aging makes it better Then you put your best stuff into
dangerous hands

What about -expired and stored warm- versus -fresh- ?


The expired film was stored warm. The fresh film was
purchased one or two days before the shot.

Hmmm, the left photo shows more warm colors (towards magenta?)
This is more noticeable in the trunks in the left side of the photos.

I suspect the left one is the one which was stored for 1 year outside?

Idly speculating,
