    I have some Fujichrome Velvia 100F 35mm film dated 2007.07 (i.e. 1
    year out of date) which has been stored since purchase (before the
    expiry date) airtight in the fridge. Would it be still useable or not
    in anyone's experience?

    Thank you.

    One year is nothing - especially if it's been in the fridge. You won't
    notice any difference.

    If it had been stored in your car's glovebox - different story.

    I have some 120 Velvia older than that. I use them every now and then (had
    10) and I certainly can't see any colour caste.

    Take one roll out, give it standard exposure
    and have it processed. If it turns out a bit
    dark, give it +0.5 on the camera meter and
    enjoy: worth it.
    I've just used 2 year expired 120 Ekta100 and
    gave it half a stop more: perfect!

    Not only will it no longer be usable for photographs, it
    will now represent a significant risk to the environment. I
    think you should send it to me so I can dispose of it
    properly. :p
