In the past, I’ve had some pretty good luck with this batch of Kodak Ektachrome 64, which expired in July of 1989. This one didn’t work out so well, and I’m not sure why.

There could be two explanations. First, due to traveling, the film was left in an incredibly hot car for three weeks. After that, it wasn’t developed for another month or so (though it was then refrigerated). Second, there was obviously a development error (black line on the side).

If I had to guess, it was because of how it was stored.

On day and weekend trips, this isn’t that huge of a deal. But on weeks long trips, I should probably be doing something different, especially when it’s incredibly hot. A lot of people buy ice, but the idea of dealing with water and getting new ice everyday is not something I’m excited about. I wonder if dry ice might work.

Any thoughts?
