Dupont Superior 4 B&W pancromatic film
At the local antique shop, I found, (and purchased) a NEW and UNOPENED 100 foot can of this film dated 1959. Before I open it and give it a try, Is there anyone that believes it may have more value in its unopened state? I'm sure the base fog has increased a little bit, and it may deliver some very interesting images, but I'm curious as to what it will do.
Dupont Superior 4 B&W pancromatic film UPDATE
Well the deed has been done. I coaxed myself to open the new (old) sealed can, wound a 36 exp roll and shot it outside. Developed with D76 for 8 minutes at 70 deg F and was extreemly surprised at the results. The first several inches were slightly fogged but gradually cleared up and a foot later revealed amazing beautiful negs. Very nice, clear base and great d-max. Printed on Illford mg needed just the slightest addition of magenta to make great prints. Estimated effective speed is about 150-200 using an 8 stop bracket and developing times. With old film, sometimes you win and others not. This time I got lucky.
