    Mystery Film

    So, I've been asked to develop a roll of 120 film. No manufacturer markings, no info from the person who dropped it off, other than the word "lomography" written on the envelope. Black backing paper which says nothing more than "120 film start" and then "120 film exposed".

    Any guesses?

    Just a shot in the dark, what color is the paper? Can you post a color photograph of it. Who knows, someone might recognize it.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    It's black... Both sides. Just some gray coloured numbers in the usual places.

    sounds like arista -- the asa should be on the white band taping it shut. If not I'd assume it is ASA 400-- 12.5 minutes in d 76, 1:1 and pray, but not too hard. It's ur best guess, worst case scenario it's really 100 and comes out a bit dense...

    if the white band says "start," are you sure it has been exposed? The exposed roll of arista sitting here in front of me only says exposed on the backing paper and EXP on the white band.

    Quite possibly Shanghai GP3. My girlfriend bought random film for me one time
    Turned out to be Shanghai. Stuff is branded as "Lomography 100", sold at Urban Outfitters and other hipster stores.
    Highly recommend Rodinal stand dev for random unknown films

    Process it any way you like, to any result. And label it "Lomography". Will fit perfect.

    I'd suggest Shanghai GP3 too, but the last time I sot a roll of this there weren't any markings at all. Just pure black unmarked paper, held together with a bit of white-ish looking masking tape.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    What?--eight posts now and nobody has chimed in with their Rodinal stand development scheme?
