    Hassy 70 mm back and loaded $70

    I just ebayed a very nice and clean Hassy 70 mm back---a few questions--I know there isn't that much practicality for such a back these days but is film still available and who processes it----another question--the back is loaded--literally--set on the first frame and the ISO set at 64--any idea whats in the back--Kodachrome 64? Before my time!! any insight ?

    Portra films are available in 70mm as well as some aero films, and maybe some other color neg films. I'm not sure which the Hassy takes, but there is perfed and unperfed 70mm film. You can check the B&H website.

    If you've got K64, then not even Duane's processes it, and you can use it for loading practice. More likely something like a 64 speed Tungsten film.

    Big labs like Duggal and A&I should be able to process 70mm.

    Should take perforated. Which would be a pain since I think most of what is left is unperforated.

    If its loaded,there could be 15ft. of film in the back.You need 70mm process tank and reel to process this film or cut the exposed film into 6 ft. length for commercial processing.Take 2 ft. of unexposed film and process by hand as if it is a slow B/W film.The marking on the film's edge will identify the film.If it come out dark,its color film.As said"more likely"a color film.Looking at the not processed film in light you should be able to tell color or B/W film or scratch the emulsion to see the colored layers in color film.

    We used to use a lot of Kodak 70mm aerial film in our Rollei 6001 (Forest Management work). Kodak, unfortunately, has deemed 70mm as non-essential, at least for aerial film, and has been slowly phasing this format out. They still make several 70 mm films which also work well "on the ground." For Processing, try HAS Images, Inc. out of Dayton, Ohio. You can buy 70mm film from B&H. Google Kodak aerial film for more info.
