out of date film - did i get a bargain?
Posted 29 May 2006 - 10:13 AM
1) Will anything appear on the film - the film was apparently kept fairly well in a celler (not refrigerated)?. I've used 3 years out of date 16mm film before (I was told to compensate by over exposing by 1/3 of a stop after a clip test). Is 30 years pushing things a little? Obviously a clip test would be a little difficult for this. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to use this best or should I just stick the camera auto exposure on and hope for the best?
2) THe Agfachrome. This comes with free processing like the k40. I'm assuming this offer has now expired? Can I just send it off to somewhere like the widescreen centre and pay for regular processing?
3) The K160. Should I do as above?
4) I still have a couple of rolls of quartzchrome (the russian stuff). Can I get this this processed at the widescren centre too.
Or should count my losses (of £2) and I just get rid of it all?
Thanking you in advance.
PS I'm in the UK

I only once developed a film where it did not work (a very old b&w double8 film) I could see the pictures, but the film did not become transparent, so there is no way to telecine it.

Shoot the K40 now- after all it's paid for- but expect some odd results. Or dev to b/w neg as suggested.
