FujiChrome Velvia 50 Canon Canonet Expired

My good photography friend Brian Copeland came across some expired 35mm and 120 film. The owner of Bell Arte camera shop in Hamilton Ontario had saved up a bunch of film for over 25 years. He decided to put it to good use and give some to Brian who gave me a couple rolls. Brian gave me a roll of 35mm FUJICHROME Velvia 50 and a 120 roll of the same. I decided to put the 35mm FujiChrome Velvia 50 in my Canon Canonet QL17 Rangefinder camera. I wasn’t sure if any would turn out at all so I just took random snaps on a walk I did down by the lakeshore in Burlington. I was told when film has been expired over 20 years you should compensate exposure a bit so I set my ISO setting on my light meter to ISO 25. Nobody around me develops slide film anymore so I had to ship it to a lab in Montreal called Borealis. Even though it was a rediculous $25 shipping (both ways) I didn’t mind since it was such a unique film. I’m pretty happy with the results and look forward to shooting the 120 roll of FujiChrome Velvia 50.
