    Once in a while come across a bag of photo stuff in a thrift store, sort it and keep it 'cuz well, you never know.

    Had this from awhile back..

    Didn't expect much and nowhere on the box did it mention compatibility with C41. The emulsion base turned to mush at the recommended temperatures but after drying for a couple of days and careful handling the Duaflex and I had this to show from our car show adventure.

    Surprised me too Derrel. Reticulation unfortunate but not too bad, think the colours in the '49 Chevvy worked well and may try for a inkjet print.

    Looks good in an "Arty" kind of way. And I am surprised as well you got anything out that for it's C-22 process which is slightly different than C-41. When a roll of C-22 comes into the lab we tell the customer to send it to Film Rescue because it can wreak havoc in a C-41 replenish type machine.

    Yup, that base swelled up like felt! It dried nice and flat though so it went in the scanner easily. Can imagine the mess inside a processer that this would cause and the job to clean it out. I'm through with colour home processing though, just wanted to try it and all went well but I get enough fun shooting and working with BW. The unicolor home kit has a limited shelf life as well. Let it sit for 4 days, did the test roll I saved out and it looked like the blix had died.

    C-41 was introduced in 1972 and replaced the C-22 process. That would be the date of film manufacture, not the expiration date. I don't think all formats switched at exactly the same time. Some formats may have switched a year or two later.

    Fuji and other manufacturers had other names for C-41 at first.

    Fuji still to this day has CN-16 (Fuji's term) and C-41 listed on their cans.
