    I found these old negatives in my grandparents basement. It's negative, not slide film and was taken, I imagine, with some sort of Kodak 124 or similar cartridge camera based on the square frames. I'm amazed at the viberant colors. Why doesn't modern negative film look like this? Please forgive the people in this frame--I have no idea who they are, either. I think the scene is in Norway, though.

    Please disreguard that last post. I seem totally incapable of posting images on this forum.

    The colors where not turn with old color film they tend to be over saturation, Kodak when to grade efforts to develop more natural color films, they learned very late that often people like the over saturation look, Kodak does make there Pro grade films in vivid and natural color, also It you can find any Kodak UC it very saturation but they may have stop making it.

    Fuji on the other hand has always been a little over saturation on there consumer films and there pro films also come in a vivid and natural version

    That is the best answer I can come up with.
