And Claudio, sometimes I end up following the check list to put it all away
hearing the lyrics of Robert Plant & Alison Krauss "Gone Gone Gone".

I do mostly 35mm and, although I normally transfer the films from the
freezer to the fridge and then to the bag, it happens I had to use a film
directly from the freezer.
I don't recall to have had problems doing so but I must say that I didn't
tried to absolutely have problems either ... :-)

I suppose 35mm is less prone to condensation as the cartridge is kept with a
low-level of humidity inside its hermetic plastic box since its
manufacturing and, once in the camera, most of the film has plenty of time
to warm-up inside the cartridge before coming out and being exposed.

For sheet film, I must say the time I need to load the backs, go on stage,
decide what and how to shoot, install the tripod, make all camera planes
adjustments, meter the exposure, re-think half an hour if this scene is
*really* worth the cost of a sheet and, finally, follow the
longer-than-a-plane check-list carefully ...
Well, you know, we're not talking of condensation on film but film aging
here ... :-)
