This might be a silly question, but then again I don't know much about photography. I hope someone experienced can shed some light on this: I have a roll of negatives I was scanning. The photos on the film roll were taken by a standard consumer camera, the kind that prints a little date and time in the corner. After I had scanned the whole roll, I noticed that the dates and times were going the wrong direction. I.e. first picture is dated Nov 30 2000, 14:22, next one is Nov 28 2000, 12:40, then Nov 28 2000 11:52, and so on. It continues this way all to the end. The final picture is from Aug 8 2000, 17:32. So basically, the dates and time indicates that the photo order is entirely reversed, with the film roll starting out with the most recently taken photo from late November in the year 2000, and the last photo from August that same year. Is this even possible, and how could that have happened? Or are most likely the actual photos in right chronological order, and only the dates / times reversed (and therefore incorrect)? Unfortunately, in the case of this roll, it's not possible for me to tell by just looking at the photos if their order is reversed, I just reacted to the dates being reversed. Please let me know what you think has happened, and why. Edit: P.S. The photos do not appear upside down on the film roll, only reversed order.
