mixing fresh stock with older stock.

Recommended Posts

I've got some Fuji vivid short ends labeled from November 2010. They've been refrigerated and then frozen since then. I know I will certainly need to order fresh stock directly from Fuji while filming since I don't have enough to finish. would their be any obvious comparisons on screen to the new and the old after using both?

Hi Jonathan.

I believe an one-year-old film stock which has been kept frozen will be just fine. However it might be safer to use it only for a specific scene (or scenes, depends on how much stock do you have) so there won't be any noticeable difference within the same scene.


Best Regards,
