So, to revive this thread: what are the rules for proper film storage? I hear a lot of people mentioning taking film from their freezer, for instance?

keep it either at room temp, or refrigerated (dry), in the dark.
chris (or anyone else), how do you feel about agfa vista?
I don't normally shoot color at all so I'm not really comfortable with the different types, but I've picked up a few rolls of various things to try out and I have one roll of vista 100 to try out
vista 100 (AGFA) is pretty much a standard consumer color film. I've never shot it, and for colour work I've always seemed to use either kodak's portra films or fujichrome reversal stock.
also, kodak ektar 100 is quite good.
I shot agfa many years ago so it may not have been agfa vista. But I didn't like it. I remember you get a kind of pinkish hue. but then again it may have been an early version of agfa and not the one you have.
Interesting, thanks guys.
I've always just shot b/w usually with fp4 and delta 100, so color isn't really familiar to me. I picked up a few other rolls at the same time just to try out (fujicolor pro 160, supra 100 and 400)
so we'll see. I want to find some that I like working with before my trips this summer. I think I might be digital-less, so i'll be taking my ftn, my rollei, and I'm undecided about which body to take for a third, but with that body I'll probably shoot color.
I have tried the new fuji 160s its nice. but a bit warm. probably would be great for portraits.
I have been looking for the kodak E100vs looks really interesting but have not found a source with reasonable prices. Its going to cost me over $75 for the film and to dev and mount and scan one roll.
