The camera thread got me thinking about several rolls of 35mm film I never got around to developing. Most were exposed in the late 90's- early 2000's. Are they still good? I'd love to see the pics I took. Thanks.

In for info.

I have a couple of those disposable cameras floating around.
1 or 2 are from a now deceased friend's wedding, the others, no idea.

Someone just found some exposed and undeveloped film from WWII. Pictures weren't perfect but there were decent images on them.

Depends on the film and how it was stored.

There's at least one way to find out. -J

If it was stored in a cool dry place it should be ok.
There might be some color shift, but you can fix that in photoshop.
My mom recently found two rolls she shot of my niece 16 years ago.
They looked a little light , but otherwise ok.

The only way to find out is to process them and find out.

Have them processed and scanned to a disc without printing to save some money.

With digital post most film can be used to make good prints. Protection from heat and moisture is the most important. I had some 10+ year old film done and 90% of it came out OK.
