Despite my previous efforts to demystify this deceased Fujifilm stock I still have something of an attachment to the idea of shooting Neopan designated films, so when I found some of the 1600 variant for sale at a reasonable price I had to buy a few rolls. These were dated 2011, which in black & white terms is not that old at all, so I didn’t do much in terms of changing the exposure index of my early rolls to accommodate for any degradation – on being happy with these initial results I continued to shoot my further rolls in the same way.
Fuji Neopan 1600
I guess it was bound to happen, too many film cameras loaded at the same time and lots happening. Having three Olympus OM10s plus a similar looking OM1 can be confusing, As a result, I recently realised one of my OM10s still had some Fuji Neopan pro 1600 in it. A good friend had treated me to some and I couldn’t remember when it was loaded. The expiry date was 2012 and what I do remember is that is wasn’t expired stock when it went into the camera.
