    My slides taken in the 1970's faded to nothing. Thank goodness I used Kodachrome mostly.

    Forget it, best advice is to make flypaper from it.

    You can successfully get color neg images using C-41 kit at home, plus manual removal of the anti-halation layer. But no telling how the colors will curve out. I've done it, just for fun.

    The problem is, what's next? It is a low contrast film intended to be "printed" onto a high contrast reversal material. Kodak's Vericolor 5022, IIRC, was a low volume film that would do that. Kodak also had a number of different "print" films over the years to make the movies.

    Being low contrast, prints never came out very well. I had this done, with slides, for years from Identicolor in North Hollywood. Ditto RGB color, and they would make the "print" slides from any C-41 film very nice.

    Maybe you could scan the negs into something usable, but the flypaper advice is still the best.

    Bottom line, why bother?

    You folks are right. I'm just going to use it to practice spooling film. (;

    If you aren't sure how to spool film on a steel reel, perfect practice material.....

    I do it pretty well, but I'd like to practice it so I can reduce the possibility of screwing it up in the future. (;

    Last week I found a couple of rolls I shot in he 70s, from I recall the selling point was to get both negatives and slides from the same roll. Both the slides and the negatives are faded, the prints from the oringial negatives were very gainey and high contrast and starting to fad, looks like they were printed on GAF paper. At any rate I would not bother to shoot and then pay for the addtional process.
