    No I don't. Its being shipped to me today, so I should have it by Friday. I actually bought it because the camera was in such great shape, and clean as a whistle. Through subsequent conversation with the seller, I found out that she purchased it at an estate sale a few years ago, and used it as decoration on her shelf for the last few years. She didn't even know the film was in there until she took the camera apart to photograph it for her etsy listing.

    I'm hoping it is at least B&W film and not color. If its color I'll have to send it off to somewhere.....

    Why don't you snip a piece and process it as Tri-X?

    If it is "prehistoric" colour film, pre c-41 in other words, then you are probably better off processing it as b+w anyway. It does look rather like slightly older Kodak b+w backing paper. When the film is in the tank you will maybe find more details on start of the backing paper.

    If I don't miss my guess the pattern looks like Kodacolor-X which is a C-22 Process Colour Negative. you can proably fake the formula, although it does need a couple of chemicals that are not in c-41.

    Save the spool as 620 spools are hard to come by, you can re-roll 120 on a 620 spool, although I find on some of my 620 cameras you can cram in a 120 spool as long as you use a 620 spool on the takeup side.

    Yep, most likely Kodacolor-X (c-22) or could be Ektachrome-X. (E-4)

    Process in cold C-41 (65*f) for 20 minutes and then double time in C-41 bleach and fixer (or blix).

    People have been getting surprising results this way and color too.

    Any guesses on what type of FILM it might be, and if you think its still viable for development?
    Looks like the backing paper for a roll of Verichrome Pan.
    If the lens doesn't read "ZEISS", then it just isn't.

    Tri-X or Early Kodacolor - Definitely NOT Verichrome or Verichrome Pan.
    Once you have the camera in hand, the type of film may be visible on the hidden side of the backing.

    I'm hoping that it will be delivered today, but it's coming from Canada so I'm not sure.


    According to the Canada Post website... "Item has been received at the delivery office in the destination country"

    I'm home from work, and it's here.

    It's Kodacolor II, and says C-41 process.

    Where do I start? Is this something I can develop on my own?
