Developing color negative film yourself has advantages and disadvantages. You pay less (12 rolls for 30 EUR = 2,50 EUR per roll), but have to wait until you have those 12 rolls shot. Otherwise you develop some rolls, don’t shoot anything for the rest of the month and then have to pour away the chemicals, because they expired. You are flexible (develop anytime you want – even Saturday at night), but still have to wait until those 12 rolls are done.
I shot this on my way to the lab, because I had only 11 rolls and needed another medium format one. It expired in 1991 and I wasn’t sure I’d get anything good. Exposing at ISO 25 worked like a charm. Some frames didn’t turn out that great, but that’s also the case with normal “fresh” rolls.
Being a strange old film I never heard of, I took some more photos than usual. Could be interesting for some people.
