From different sources, I was given expired bulk rolls. One came in a Lloyd bulk loader and the outside as marked "Tri-X, use b4 Aug. 1964." The other was still in its original tin and packaging, marked expired June 1993. It's a 50-foot roll. Question: Both dev'd films are marked Kodak Safety Film 5063. I know this was on Tri-X in the 70s / 80s ... but would it have been on there in the early 60s? I rolled some of each onto cassettes and here are the results. It looks like the really old 1960s-stuff is unusable, but the stuff from 1993 looks good at ISO 100 dev'd in undiluted D-76. First the oldest stuff ... I metered at ISO 25 and then bracketed. Including an underexposed frame here because it demonstrates the reason I can't use it. Anybody know what causes that streak on the bottom half? Is it just because it's old film or was this stuff at some point exposed to light? Tri-X expired Aug. 1964 exposed @ iso 25, dev'd in undiluted d-76 Tri-X expired Aug. 1964 exposed @ iso 100, dev'd in undiluted d-76 Tri-X expired June 1993 exposed @ iso 100, dev'd in undiluted d-76 These from 1993 came out mostly great ... but you can see some brownish specs to left of her ... those were on a couple of frames only ... and I'm not sure what they are. These are all neg scans from v500, no post-processing except to resize.
