Expired colour reversal ORWOCHROM films - what can you expect after developing?
In the case of colour films, the prognosis are much worse than in the case of films in black - white. All factors affecting the aging of the black and white film which were described before, by color movie apply also; at the same time there is a more complicated construction emulsion color, as well as the fact that in the process of developing film, color can not be modified in such a wide range, like in the black and white film processing. With the developing of reversible color films I use factory recipe ORWOCHROM 9165.
Please follow the examples of developings listed below before taking the decision to give the film to the developing, because I do not give any guarantee of getting any image, and I will not provide any compensation in the case the effects of the developing does not satisfy the customer. At the same time, I think so old, 20-, 30-year-old films have sentimental value and technical quality is of secondary importance. Do not give up even a small chance of obtaining any image, if it is important to us. I should add that this image can be improved in the process of digital copying, eg. on CD.
