    A presoak would not help much. Use carbonate, about 50 g/l IIRC. Sodium Carbonate, and either anhydrous or monohydrate as the amount is not critical.

    Use it on the Kodachrome for about 2 minutes at 68 deg F and then wipe very very gently with a sponge wetted in the carbonate. Then wash for about 2 minutes in running water and then develop. Times are probably not critical in this case, but would be in a real color process.

    processing old colour film

    Hello Ron:Thanks for the info.When you mention a real colour process,are referring to C-41 or E-6?.Do I rate the film at it's normal ASA or will whatever process I choose affect how I rate it?.Also,what temp do I process it at or will that be a hit or miss proposition ?.

    This should do it for this subject.Thank you all for your help.

    Kodachrome cannot be done in anything but the Kodachrome process itself or a B&W process. It is the only color film (except motion picture camera stock) that has rem jet. So, I refer you to the Kodachrome process when I speak of the real color process.

    I have no idea what ISO speed to use for any old film or any film not processed in its own process, nor can I suggest process conditions. I do suggest you use 20 deg C or 68 F for B&W processing.

    About ten years ago, when working for a pro lab, we received several rolls of the then-current colour motion picture film. If memory serves, it was designated Eastman 5247 Motion Picture Film.

    As it had a rem jet backing, we caught it (on a C-41 dip and lift processor) as it came out of the first wash tank. As we had allowed it to wash, we swabbed the base side with a wet cotton pad, until all of the rem jet was gone. We then returned it to the first wash for a further ten minutes, and allowed the C-41 process to continue (fix, wash, stabilizer and dry).

    I had no part in the contact printing of the negatives, but there were images on the film!
