Dr88man: Purchase a large quantity of film, and you can keep it in the freezer for years without degradation. Allow the roll to thaw at room temperature for 1 week before use. I can never get rid of my Mamiya 7ii system with the 43mm, 80mm, and 150mm lenses.
On this latest news, I just ordered several 5pk Velvia and Acros films. I scan my own film with an Epson V750. What actually worries me is the vanishing E6 developers.
30% price increase, doesn't mean elimination, just reflects lower volume and increased costs of chemicals.

I do have a lead lined box from my medical film storage days. One can line any box with lead sheet metal. I do agree that gamma radiation will get the better of film over time, but not before a solid 10 years. Ken Rockwell reports of using film he frooze from the 1908s without detriment. I can only vouch that one should be able to get 10 year shelf life in deep freeze.

While Fuji is experimenting and dreaming big, a digital equivalent of a Mamiya 7ii employing a 6x7 or even perhaps a true 645 size sensor would be a revelation.
