I have a number of C41 films dating back from when I
was yearbook photographer in high school... in the
late 1960s. None of them are showing any significant
signs of deterioration.
I just got through scanning one of these on the 8000
and they look very nice. Strangely, I can't identify
the film type at all -- there are no markings on it
to help with that. But it's 35 mm, and in terms of
surface/emulsion quality, looks like new. This film
in particular is at least 35 years old.
