    what went wrong?

    I dropped off some quite old Fujichrome 50 D sheet film for processing and it came back all red. The process lab person said it must have been the old film. The image was great...with clear and sharp details but just red.

    I was wondering if maybe the film wasn't fujichrome but in a fujichrome box... After checking the notch on the returned film it was indeed the correct film. Did the process lab screw up or does the film do that with age? Could it just be washed again in water...?

    Age, or heat, or both?

    Like John said it could be age, or heat or both. I must admit it does look neat.

    Almost looks like a Wratten #25 was on the lens.

    No filter on the lens...this time! It does convert to a nice b&w image...

    Not trying to act as an expert on sheet film, but this reminds me of this thread here. Any chance you had the film in your camera backwards?

    What do the edges look like. Are they black or red.

    If red, it is age or safelight fog. If black then the film was in the camera backwards.

    If it was backwards, it is also overexposed a lot because the antihalation layer eats many stops and you should end up with very dark red image. Did you remember to stop down the lens?
