    What to do with Seattle Film Works (ECN2) stock?

    So, I picked up a couple rolls of Seattle Film Works 5247, dated March 1990—from an estate sale. They were only charging 25cents for two, so I figured I couldn't go wrong.

    I hear this stock has an anti-halation layer on it that can harm the average C41 machine or working solution. Where can I get this stuff developed, and what would you guys do if you had a couple rolls of this stuff sitting around? (Don't say, "Throw it away!")

    I've read that Richard Photo Lab can process movie film, maybe give them an email.

    Use it to practice loading a spiral, for testing cameras. Or spray it with syrup/treacle and hang it from the ceiling to catch flies...
    testing...

    Not likely worth the trouble. Movie film, even properly processed, generally disappoints compared to color films. But if it sounds fun, enjoy the adventure.

    Agreed, don't bother with it, unless you like experimenting, (or keep it as a collectable). I remember this sustem at the time...seemed a great idea to get slides and prints from the same film, but it proved a compromise that didn't do either job well as using the correct film for each purpose.

    Kodak in the UK used to offer a service for "Kodacolor transparencies" from colour negs. I still have some of these slides from sets which my Dad did for work purposes, where maybe a dozen of each pic was needed....they are very good when seen on their own, but don't have the sparkle or depth of colour of a reversal film.

    Let me know if you're successful at that. They seem to have gone off the grid (or maybe it's just my calls and emails Karl's not returning.)
