    Kodacolor-X (cx 620) exp 1968

    I bought a $1.99 Ansco ReadyFlash that came with an unopened roll of this film and wondered what I can generally expect from this and if my normal color lab can handle it. Since it's Saturday I can't call the lab so I'm asking you all

    I loaded it in the camera and will be shooting on sunny days or if I can find some bulbs for the flash. It's been snowing for the past two days so I may have to wait awhile.

    Thanks,

    Alan.

    I think Kodacolour-X was C-22 process, but that is based on memory only.

    According to Rocky Mountain Film you are right that it is C22. And if RMF still develops it, I would bet that there might be a couple of other labs that do, too.

    It will be very expensive to process as its the old C22 process. As the film is almost 40 years old the results are likely to be poor with colours off balance and a high base fog level. There could also be mottling & other defects if its been stored in poor conditions - quite a strong possibility with such an old film. Personally I wouldn't bother. I have heard you can process it to a black & white negative but I've got no details.

    So basically it has to be processed with C-22 and 75 degrees rather than with C-41 and 100 degrees which would melt off all the emulsion?

    I did some searching and found out about RMF. The $30 to process is a bit steep but I guess it could be interesting and I only have one roll. Too bad I can't put it in my Diana

    Throw the fim away! I can tell you from experience that C-22 process films had a terribly poor shelf life. Save your money.

    No no! Save it as a collector's item. If it was exposed, I'd say send it to a guy at Photo.net in the classic cameras forum who can develop c-22 as B&W.
