    Bulk film in loader. Possibility to identify?

    Hi everyone, I got two bulk loaders and there's is film in them. My questions are:

    any chance to identify what film I got there? My best bet that both are tri-X 400 film but i'm not sure..

    What iso can I set? What if it's 100 and I set 400? Or the other way around.

    Any info would be great.

    Take 2 sort lengths and process them, most films have pre-exposed edge markings.

    With the different dev times/chemicals, it should be OK enough to see the markings?

    I had a similar problem a while back, was given a stack of home-reloaded cassettes, all the same film but no labels! Try developing a few inches of the film in your usual developer at time/temperature for Tri-X.....all you need is to be able read the pre-exposed markings, doesn't matter if it proves to be another film, the developing should be near enough for the purpose.

    I thought so. Just wanted to ask! Thanks.

    Yeah, I have a few loaders I got off ebay and one from a friend (who I think labeled it wrong) so I want to test it.

    Last time I had something like that, I simply pulled a few inches from the loader in the dark and tossed the strip into a tray of Dektol for a few minutes. Stop and fix followed. Good enough to get the job done.

    If it does not have edge markings, come back to this thread and describe both a developed and undeveloped piece of this film. Ive seen a fair number of films without markings and we may be able to help you out.

    Hi all, well I developed a test roll in my old chemicals and the film came out foggy clear, and
    I can barelly see one exposure out of 5.

    I can barelly see some markings so need help to identify the film.

    I see an arrow to the right then a 40 in black box then arrow and 40A then arrow 41 then arrow 41A with an E on top of 41. Then it has little 0 2 7 right after the 41A

    oh looking hard right now I can read on the other side what seems like kodak safety film 5063?

    That's all I have. Plz help
