1950's film Agfacolor ultra-k 40 ASA / fomachrome / ORWO color / kodacolor-x
foc and agX, thanks for the info.
The ORWO after closer inspection had a German word which using google translator said "to go back" so I think it's reversal film.
foc, I actually have seen that page before, but I only read the K section last time, and regular K on this list only has a 10 and 12 ASA speed, where the ULTRA-K is 40 ASA (ultra fast! Haha). So I couldn't tell where the Ultra-K process info is, BUT re-reading right at the bottom, in the history area I discovered the answer, the Ultra-K is CN17!
I honestly have only hand processed E-6 and a bunch of different B&W films from as old as 1967. All successfully, but this is color and 1958(agfacolor). The image on the film that I shot is a girl in a VERY RED dress, so I'm kind of hoping to try for color.
I've just never even done C-41 (I have powder packets I've just never used them) but is there a way to dilute it so that it wouldn't destroy the emulsion as you said it might?
I don't know anything about CN17 or CNS process, and I've never done E-2 or E-4 (thorough I'd like to learn E-4 as I've read that you can use that process with Kodachrome and develop it as B&W).
Point is, I need a little more hand holding as I'm relatively new to this, all self taught, I wait till I get enough information and then give it a try, so far I haven't had a single bad development
The agfacolor CN17 universal processing instructions call for a magnesium sulfate bath that is easy enough to make.
But is there any kind of equivalent for the color developer? Anyone know enough about chemistry? I can make it if I know what chemicals to mix...
Thanks again if anyone knows anymore, if I HAVE TO I will process in B&W I am just going to try color first.
On that note, anyone know what B&W developer to use and what times to go by? I mostly use Ilford ilfsol 3 liquid developer, but I think this would be too harsh/strong for this film?
Few ok I'll stop typing now. Thanks again.
