    Difference between low and high ISO colour film

    I know there will be more grain using a high ISO film, but I was wondering will there be any difference in the colour performance? For example, two properly exposed images with the same colour intensity using ISO 200 and ISO 400 film respectively, will the one using ISO 400 perform better in...

    Random squiggly lines on my scanned roll?

    I just shot a roll of kodak 200 gold film and sent my roll to a film development lab to get it developed and scanned. When I received the digital scans of the roll they ended up with random squiggly lines throughout the scans. What's the cause of this?

    Developing Overexposed Film

    There may be an answer to this question somewhere else but I am a little confused. If I shoot Portra 400 35mm at 200 ISO instead of box speed, do I need to let the lab know to develop it differently? If so, what is the difference and why can’t the over exposure be achieved by developing the film...

Or it was taken in Dec 71 if imprint is the date the paper was produced. My mother says that this is my 7th birthday suggesting the latter...
