    It is a bit worrying that you shot a roll of Provia 100F,only to find in the film cassette,a 24 exp roll of Sensia 400. I think i read the post right?

    I noticed on a roll of Velvia 50 yesterday,the film rewound after frame 32,never had that before. I hope my camera is not playing up,will see on the next roll.

    Also, there's the little point that I've never owned a roll of Sensia in my life---certainly not a 24-exposure roll of Sensia. Freestyle (where I get my slide film) doesn't seem to offer any slide film in 24 exposures. The images on the film are mine, so it's not like my roll got switched with someone else's. What *happened* here???

    many years ago we had a small group of tiger barbs in our fish tank.
    there were maybe 6 of them ... one day i was counting them
    and there were like 7 or 8 fish in there ...
    i asked someone who was a fish expert what he thought, seeing our tank
    wasn't stress free and i didn't think the fish were going to be able to
    increase their population on their own ...

    he said: " have you heard of alien abduction theory "
    i said: " yup "
    he said: " this is just the opposite, you are getting more fish, not less "

    so maybe there is a connection with you, and your slides, and film you have never used before ...

    maybe ... they aren't yours at all .... but they belong to " another you "

    I just figured out where the film came from (and I'm afraid it has nothing to do with John's tiger barbs). A couple of months ago, I opened a drawer in my mother-in-law's kitchen and found an unused roll of Fujichrome 400. She had no real idea how old it was; I checked that it really did say "process E-6", then volunteered to go ahead and shoot it and see what happened. So I did, and put it in the cabinet where I keep E-6 film to be taken in for development, then forgot all about the whole episode.

    I'm guessing Fujichrome 400 is an old branding of Sensia, so that explains why I had a roll of film I never expected to have. My advancing years explain why it took me so long to remember that.

    Does the age of the film by itself suffice to explain the results? The color shift seems possible (though in the past, when I've shot way-past-date slide film, it's gone pink rather than green), but the thin results seem kind of backwards. If it's lost sensitivity, shouldn't the results look like underexposure, i.e., dark images?

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.
