    What film is this and which process to develop it?

    Hi everyone,

    I picked up an old Yashica-Mat in Scotland last weekend and it had this roll of film in it. Does anyone know which process would be required?

    OK, i have just read up that it used the C-22 process. My question then is, can it be cross processed or what are the alternatives?

    It will have printed on the backing paper either the letters C41 or C22. The C41 is little problem. You will have to send it off to somewhere like Peak Imaging in Sheffield or do it yourself in normal C41 chemicals. The C22 process is long extinct in every day use, but I am sure that someone on the forum can suggest a place to send it to get it processed.

    If it is C22 it will be at least 30 years old and it may not be worthwhile getting it done. You could always try developing it as a B&W film.

    It is Kodacolor-X.
    This film was the last of the Kodacolor-series to be processed in C-22.

    What happens when you develop C22 as BW? I might just do that and see what happens.

    You will gain a b&w film whose densitometric characteristics might not be optimal, as the silver image was only intended as intermediate step.
    Furthermore there will be a heavy orange cast due to the masking-dyes.

    Off all the sites I would have looked at for answers on this, I wouldn't have expected e-how, but for some reason an informative answer ended up there. Thanks $DEITY for search engines ...

    What a nice bunch of people you are :-)

    I'll process them as BW and see what emerges.

    Thank you all.

    hi ghostman

    on my profile page i have color film that was processed in b/w developer
    the mask is HEAVY and orange but with current modern technology you will be
    able to get an image out of it ... i can't say how but you can go to DPUG to get
    the essentials ( hint ! )
    i process all my color stock nowadays in a coffee based developer made of sumatran coffee beans.
    i add a smidgin of print developer to it, and have no problems. i am sure any b/w developer will give
    you acceptable results !

    john
    im empty, good luck

    There's a place in North Dakota that can still process C-22 color film, I think. They specialize in old film.


    Kent in SD

    Kind of a long way to send film, but here are some links:
    http://www.rockymountainfilm.com/c22.htm
    Here's one in the UK: http://www.processc22.co.uk/
    Worth a try just to see what's on it.
