    I processed a roll of 120 ORWO NP15 in Rodinal 1+40 9 min at 20C.
    Agitation standard 0-1 min then 3 x each min.
    Shot it at 25 ISO and 12 ISO.
    The strange thing even at 25 ISO it looks over exposed.
    Should I develop it longer?
    To me the negatives look a bit too bright.
    Also I am not sure if they are fogged or not, as I am not sure what a fogged negative looks like, I assume, but I dont know.
    Scanning can be really deceiving compared to wet prints - I can only scan - and I do let it go through Colorperfect which I think renders a much better result, but can often get a bad negative alright.
    So my question is - should I expose this at 50 or develop it longer?
    The result is here:
    Both just scanned as is and inverted as is
    and one example gone through ColorPerfect.

    Looks like a light leak to me. It will be interesting to see what the people who actually know something have to say.

    What is NP15 $ where'd you get it? It may be a movie film. I used NP25 yrs ago & liked it, but it was a conventioan still film.

    My time for ORWO NP15 in R09 1+50 is 10 min@20°C
    Initial agitation is 30 sec, after the first 30 seconds I agitate for 10 seconds at 1 min intervals.

    This film expired 25 years ago, but I shot it at box speed:

    I think some of your photo show the camera light leak effect.

    I have used my camera quite a lot and it doesn´t have light leaks, or any ligth leaks, it was even CLA´d recently. Maybe the roll itself had a small light leak or took it out or put it in,
