How should I store my film ?

Raw Stock Storage
Like other color films, Fujicolor Negative Film may undergo certain changes in photographic properties when stored for extended periods. Since these changes can be accelerated, particularly through the action of heat and moisture, it is recommended that raw stock be stored at temperatures below 10°C (50°F). Packages containing film that has been refrigerated should remain sealed until reaching equilibrium with ambient temperature. When packages are opened too soon, moisture from outside the package may condense on the film surface before and during use.
Exposed Film Handling
Exposed films should be processed as soon as possible. If exposed films cannot be processed within one week of exposure, they should be stored at a temperature below 10°C (50°F) and processed as soon as circumstances permit.
Processed Film Storage
Fujicolor Negative Film is designed to resist color fading. However, high temperatures and humidity accelerate changes in dye image and film base deterioration. To avoid such changes, processed film should be kept at a temperature of 15°C (59°F) with 30% to 40% RH for long-term storage (about 100 years) or at a temperature 20°C (68°F) with 40% to 50% RH for medium term storage (about 50 years). Furthermore, it is recommended that processed film in storage should undergo visual inspection for changes (e.g. deformation, color fading, adhesion, and mould) and be checked for acetic acid odour at intervals of a few years.
