    Hi Scheimpflug,

    Did you ever get the pictures of those 9.5" spools I sent you?

    guess I'm selling all my Verichrome then... too bad since I got some neat images off of the first roll from 1947...

    Last roll of that WWII film I bought was a complete stuck-together vinegary mess when I opened it. I don't think the OP had to worry about nitrate film, but I bet it was unusable!

    The same is true of the combustion gases of most of our houshold items.

    Sarin is something from another league of death.

    Safely using old-stock Nitrate / Nitrocellulose film?

    Verichrome was made on Nitrate base until the mid 1950's they were a holdout for some reason, so he may have to worry about that.

    But usable is a perspective...

    These images aren't "Great" but they can be said to be usable.




    That's Verichrome from 1947 that I just shot and developed a month ago. Very much Nitrate, and very much usable if you can tune in on the proper EI to shoot at.
