    Ugh, forgot to label film - quick dev question

    I shot two rolls of Presto today, one @400, the other pushed to 1600. I forgot to label which one was which (I know, I'm still kicking myself.) The way I see it, I have three options

    1. Dev them both @400 so at least 1 roll comes out (D-76 for 7mins)
    2. Dev them both @1600 so at least 1 roll comes out (D-76 for 14mins)
    3. Dev them in D-76 for about 10 minutes ... would that work or ruin them both?

    How about developing one of them then deciding what to do with the other? You'll have a 50% chance of getting the first one right and a 100% chance of getting the second one right...

    Another option is to develop one roll (you have a 50:50 chance of being right) and then developing the next accordingly. You could also decide if one roll is significantly more valuable to you than the other.

    BTW: Even a pencil will mark film canisters well enough. You could even scratch them with a key or a coin.

    Can you re-shoot the subject?

    I'm surprised no one has suggested a clip test - Surely you could run a clip test for ISO 400 on one roll? If it's properly developed, that's your 400 roll, if it's dim, it's the 1600.

    Clip test? You mean clip a piece off the film and develop that piece only? There's an idea ...

    I could reshoot both rolls (I'm no pro) but I'd rather save at least 1 roll.

    Good lesson to take a pen or pencil along with me next time ...

    Precisely
    At worst, you stand to lose a few frames, as opposed to losing a whole roll!

    I cut off about 2" of a roll and did it in D-76 for 7:30. Doh!! The 2" piece had two photos I really wanted to keep ... The negs look okay though, and at least now I know which roll is which (and to bring a #$%& pencil with me next time.)

    Thanks for the help!
