Good evening,

All sources that I've been able to find suggest that deep freezing unexposed
film is a terrific idea, except Kodak data sheet E-30 which states that we
can't rely on freezing to preserve film past its use-by date because fast
films in particular will be slowly fogged by background radiation that's
present not only everywhere, but also in the deep freeze (and even passes
through lead). I'd like to have a stash of Delta 100 & 400 to keep me going
as long as possible after Ilford goes under, so does anyone have any hard
facts on freezing film?
