GAF Type 2863

    Hello Expired Members !

    I have a box of GAF Type 2863 4X5 Film that I've been sitting on for a few years.
    I thought that the ASA Rating was 400, now that I checked the box there isn't an
    ASA Rating ... The " Develop Before Date " Is 1974. Any information and exposure,
    and processing advice available from you fine folks ?

    P.S.:

    What is the oldest film that you have in your collection ?

    I have a roll of Tri-X 120 from 1969 !
    I'm hoping to buy a box of KodaChrome 4X5, or 8X10 one of these days.

    Thanks for creating this group John !

    hi ron!
    pleasure was mine .. i
    i bought a bunch of film a few years ago
    all 8x10 and wicked expired, its sitting in boxes in my darkroom on the shelf
    i think it is from the early 70s/ late 60s
    i've been meaning to pull them out, load them and expire them
    but unfortunately life gets in the way sometimes.
    i don't think i have things much older than that .
    except for some dry plates in a box
    "vintage"

    oh, regarding your film ...

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum37/8...pe-2863-a.html
    suggests it was iso 500!
    i think folks suggest halfing the iso for every 10 years
    so you are down around ( 250, 125, 60, 30 ) maybe iso 30?

    no idea what to process it in, maybe something strong and fast like print developer with potassium bromide
    i'd do short and sweet so maybe dektol 1:5 for 5 mins ? or if you have ansco130 1:6 for 6mins ...

    have fun !

    That's an excellent collection !

    My ultimate collectors item would be a box of 8X10 KodaChrome !
    But, I would settle for a box of 4X5 KodaChrome . . .

    Ron,
    I remember that before Dwayne's shut down the processing line, there was a box of 10 sheets of 3-1/4x4-1/4 Kodachrome that sold on eBay. I put in a bid, but the final price was around $300 if I remember correctly.
    Regards,
    Dave
