    Last Night me and my friend Paul decided to whip out our film cameras, and go shoot around town. I always shoot black and white film, because ive never found a color film that i like. Well, Paul put a roll of color film in my camera, and i LOVE the look. It's very contrasty. But when i developed it in the darkroom last night, i lost the film container, and i never really looked to see what it was...cause i assumed i wouldnt like it anyway. It wasn't velvia though, i know that. Can y'all give me some real contrasty color films so i can try and figure out what it was?

    Oh, and i cant call Paul, because his cell phone is broken, and i have no idea what his home is.

    It was slide?
    If so, it could have been Provia, Ektachrome Plus (EPP), or perhaps E100G/GX.

    If it was neg, possibly Portra VC or UC, or Fuji 160C

    Looks like you'll be showing up on Paul's doorstep to ask him what film it was.

    the type of film should be along the whole edge of the film.

    strange that the edges are trimmed off.

    If the edges are trimmed off, how did you run it through your camera?

    Yeah I was thinking the same thing. What on earth can you do with film that has the edges trimmed off? You couldn't put it in any kind of neg holder (digital ones for scanners included).

    Yeah, that's a lame film. Maybe it was like a sheet film or something?

    On one set i trim the edges off all of my negatives. Its so when i print i can have about a 3/4" border on a 5x7, where i put my name and info.

    If i think i might want to make them digital, i scan them and then trim the edges.
