Hey everybody, I just bought an AE-1 Program kit(1) off eBay that came with some period(2) Kodacolor 400 inside, around 15 shots were exposed. I followed instructions on Photography In Malaysia's website (MIR) and rewound the film, opening the back cover after the counter reached "S" only to find the film had not fully rewound! probably only around 2-3 frames were exposed, I could see the film leader wrapped around the spindle-thing (words escape me this morning!) I immediately closed the cover and forced the re-wind knob to finish the job - the first time it just spun back, in what I can only assume as a statement of arrogent defiance for its new owner. So a couple of questions pertain: 1) For lack of an alternative, I was going to process normally ie. commercially, so should I send it to a Pro Lab (Peak Imaging is the one I use for BW/E6) or my local supermarket (Asda)? Asda massively increase contrast and saturation in their prints, which benefits other expired C-41 films (albeit shot recently) I've sent to them. 2) Whats the likelihood Ill get some discernable images back? And when did they actually stop making Kodacolor Gold 400? It has the 80's Kodacolor VR packaging (the film carton end label came with the camera), not the 90's packaging with the omnipresent "GOLD" written on it. Have I ruined all the images by prematurely opening the cover, or just the first few shots? Any help would be appreciated. (1) Slightly grubby AE-1 Program (with classic "Canon Cough", though i think its rather cute!), Disintegrating leatherette case, misshapen rubber eyepiece, pristine 50/1.8 and Hoya 1B for £22.60, Was that a good deal? (2) The date code puts this model at Dec. '82, though I doubt the film is that old.
