I have recently gone up in the world having my first try at using real Colour Negative film in my Filmo...

The folks at Niagra Custom Lab in Toronto did a nice job of making a workprint for me on Kodak 3382. That stock is labeled KOD.AK 3382 25. 2005 so I can tell that it was made at Kodak Limited this year. (and I will admit being a bit surprised that it crossed the atlantic instead of just Lake Ontario)

Anyway, I used two short ends of Fuji Film to make this test shoot. One is edge printed

FUJI F250D 419 110 L34HA2 and has edge numbers starting with FN62 9286 8686
The other is marked
FUJI F64D 026 103 P479I2 and has edge numbers starting with FN22 3454 7479

My question is is their any code hidden in there so I can tell when that film was made?

I also had a literal 10 foot end of Kodak 7284 which was a couple of years old (2002) that also came out well. The 400 foor roll has been languishing in my freezer for a couple of years and I recently tried to cut it into 4 spools, and somehow had ten feet left over! I guess the four spools are a bit less than 100 ft.

The slower film is of course MUCH sharper

Charles who is enjoying a learning curve.
I was thrilled at how much better the Negative / positive shots cameout compaired to the VNF that I have been using before. It is going to take some self control to go back to shooting Black and white, even though that is far easier on my non-existant budget.
