About Lucky Film
The Lucky Film Corporation (formerly known as Baoding Cinefilm Manufacturing Factory) was founded in 1958 as part of the Chinese Government's plans to build 'in-house' manufacturing capacity for important products.
There were a major part of the film industry in the second half of the 20th century, and one of the most important Asia suppliers.
During the early 21st Century and the digital revolution, they formed a partnership with Kodak Eastman in an effort to further modernise their operations, but sadly this wasn't enough to keep them in the consumer market.
Their films were known for providing a neutral colour palette, although of course that's less likely to be true now that the film is 12 year's expired!
Please note that we can't guarantee results with any films past expiry date. However we have done spot tests on the batch, and are also reassured by our supplier that they have been stored properly over the past years.
Notes from our supplier:
- Expired film is less sensitive to light, so I recommend shooting it 1-2 stops over-exposed (so these rolls at ISO 25-50)
- If you’re using an automatic or point & shoot camera & can’t change the ISO, just ask for it to be pushed a stop in development
- Obviously, being expired film, results can vary from roll-to-roll, so perhaps don’t make it your first choice for an extremely important shoot!
- I’ve found for best results, shoot at 25 ISO
- Expect some colour shift towards green/yellow & fairly muted tones
- High grain
- I particularly liked it when photographing architecture/street
- But it’s great fun to shoot & to not be totally sure what you will get back - the surprise element of it is one of the best bits for me!

Personally found it exciting to shoot with expired film not knowing how the photos will come back to me. This was fun to shoot with, just rmb not to use it on anything important. There were a few indoor shots where I forgot I was shooting with expired film and frames were wasted, but that was my bad. Got a few cool outdoor shots tho, albeit the sky was abit grey. Had some fun colour grading and quite like how those came out
I recieved this in a wonderbox, so didn't realise it had expired and just chucked it in the bag for covering our family holiday. I managed to not do so badly as I tend to overexpose my film heaps anyway, but was dissapointed all round. Maybe if I'd gone in with different expectations (I'd have used it as a camera testing roll, maybe?)
Hi Simon, I'm truly sorry to hear about your disappointment with the film you received in the WonderBox. With our WonderBoxes, we strive to offer a variety of different films to try, including expired, rare, and creative options, and I apologise if this wasn't made clear - Hannah
got some cool shots. wasted a lot due to still being a beginner and taking some shots in darker and indoor lighting which this film is not suited for.
