    What's wrong with this film?

    Recently I bought several rolls of Fomapan 400 film. One roll shows some patterns like tree branches. Did any happen to have similar problems? Is it mold or fungus?

    BTW this is rebranded Arista Edu Ultra 400.

    To my aging eyes it looks like a double exposure.

    Never seen it before but that does look like fungus to me; the only alternative I can think of is a static discharge when advancing the film, but the images I have seen of that do look different.

    double exposure of some sort -- the clear pattern in the middle, not to mention the tree-branch-like pattern on the top, can be nothing else. what sort of camera?

    Sorry but I meant the tree branch like patterns in the picture.

    perhaps too big temperature variation during developing, developer much cooler than the rinse for example. I have no idea how big difference there is allowed. THe emulsion has suffered. Reticulation. My guess only. The odds are 1:19.

    Definitely a double-exposure to me. Looks like grass. If you are using an SLR, check your advance mechanism. If not, then you likely just forgot to advance or inadvertently tripped the shutter (although the superimposed picture looks well in focus).

    Best,

    Clearly a double exposure of a grassy knoll.

    I'd go with the accidental double exposure theory.....but, reading your original query carefully, are you saying the fault in on one frame or on the whole roll ?

    We know what film you used, but what camera were you using? Did you buy the film from a dealer or an acquaintance that had it sitting around? If you had not double exposed in your camera, is it possible that the film was already exposed and the reloaded in the camera and exposed again?
