hello there,

i just recently purchased a Revue camera from eBay. It looks like it's from the late 70s possibly early 80s. there was film stock inside, partially filmed, so i finished the reel filming myself. i've never used a super 8 film camera before, and i would really appreciate any help on how one might go about developing the film at home. i'm an artist, and i've done some darkroom silkscreen exposure but that's about it. the catridge inside my camera says SC 40 and it's only got one wheel i believe. i have a suspicion it might be Fuji film.
would it be easy to develop this at home with chemicals? and is this film stock discontinued now?

Thanks in advance!

Irina

If you were to post a good scan of the label, someone may be able to recognize it. I would guess it is private labeled film from somewhere, and would also guess that it has not been stored properly in the meantime.

Assuming it is colour, it may take ME-4 or E6 ektachome processing, Kodachrome processing (K14) or one of the leng gone AGFA processes. Only the E6 is likly to be able to be done at home. IF it is Kodachrome, ONLY the folks at K14movies.com still are equiped to process it, and that process was never available to any lab that was not willing to spend big bucks on a custom processing machine.

bottom line, is that it is not likly to be practical to process.
