    Just happened to check a random box of 35mm Agfa 50RS slides from 1998, and was alarmed to see that they have all faded to an unusable overall green image!

    These were processed by the then official Agfa lab (in Bury, UK), stored in their original plastic box, in a cool dark dry place, no possibility of fumes or other nasties affecting them.

    Surely a so-called Professional film shouldn't do this after 15 years...anyone any views? I took quite a lot of stuff on 50RS and 100RS in the 1990's, most is stored safely away, but will need to now check it out!
