    I wondered that. I tend to freeze films if I am not planning to use them for a while or if they are short dated. This is probably unnecessary with B&W but I like to keep films fresh.

    I have never had a problem with any other film including FP4 and HP5 so it seems unlikely that freezing Pan F would cause this problem but searches online suggest that my experience is not a one-off.

    However, if it really was reticulation I would have expected to be able to see some kind of crazing under a microscope - which I can't; just a very fine dense snow-like effect in the scanned images.
