C-22 Process, 127 film: Is there a service avail?

Discussion in 'Film and Processing' started by sauerwine, Aug 25, 2006.

  1. A customer of mine has a roll of (what I think is) 127 Kodachrome X, C-22
    process film.

    Does anyone know of a service to develop this?

    I can tell by the condition of the roll that there could be a chance (other than
    color shift or other time-based effects) it would turn out fine. It appears as
    though it has remained free from humidity and dust- the customer said it was
    stored in a drawer. (Hopefully it wasn't a secret drawer... who knows what
    could be on there...)

    Anyhow. If anyone knows of a service, please tell. Thanks!

  3. Well, I should have looked at the site myself first. They state they cannot do C-22 processing. But it may still be worth a phone call to ask them for a recomendation.
  4. Are you sure it's Kodachrome? If it says C-22, it is definitely not Kodachrome, but rather, Kodacolor. Two very different films.

    Sometimes you have to wait a month or two before they run a particular process.
  6. If it's C-22 it's Kodacolor-X

    Try http://www.filmrescue.com/

    It's not going to be cheap to get it processed though and there's no guarantee of sucess. It must be at least 30 years old. C-41 replaced C-22 back in the early 1970s.
  7. Or, develop it in HC-110 at Tri-X times, and you will get reasonably useful B&W negatives that you can scan.
  8. I'm sorry it took me so long to get back here and check.
    (I've been dealing with a new car just purchased, drove 100 miles, and it's dead...you know...)

    So that must have been on my mind when I typed CHROME instead of COLOR- yes...Kodacolor-x.

    Shriver: Really??? I think I could handle that!

    Everone: thanks! Rocky... forgot about that one!
  9. Forgot to ask this question.

    I've done roll film in 120/220 before. What.on.earth roll film reel would work for this? Again, I'm pretty certain it's 127.

    Paterson plastic reels can be adjusted for 127 film. At least the older ones could. Just turn the reel clockwise, hard, to snap it free.
