The film that never was

Post by mark dyson » Sun Nov 07, 2010 9:16 pm

A few months ago I was given a film, a Kodak infrared. With this film you load it in the camera in the dark, even taking it out of the canister can cause fogging. I taped the film viewing window with black tape to be safe. I exposed the film at 400 asa and with a dark red filter in place. Having exposed the film I removed it from the camera in the dark and placed it in the developing tank ready for the chemicals. Every thing was ready and I went to throw away the empty film casing and guess what I found written on it, Fujichrome Velvia 100f. Oh dear.

Oh dear indeed. I hope it developed some nice black and white images!
Best regards

Might it have been one of those 'freebies' that fly into the assembled members from the front at the start of an evening? :twisted: :lol:

I am sure you will get over it eventually? Unless we keep reminding you :twisted: - maybe after you have just ribbed me about my battery failure :lol:

Their was nothing I could have done, not knowing what was in the canister I was literally in the dark. But that will not stop you and the film crew from taking the you know what out of me. Remember he who has never made a mistake has never made anything. :lol: Their is no history button in film photography.

I'm not clear whether or not you have processed the film, but any film can be processed to black and white negatives. IUf you try whatever you would use for say a 100 ISO BW film then you should be close enough to get some useable negatives. If you want to do a clip test even better - just clip off a short length of film and test-process that. Then you can adjust the processing for the main part of the film.

The results could be interesting.
Best regards
