Technically garbage (just wanted to finish the roll in order to load one of the two Kodachrome rolls I gambled on [want to try it while on can]) with handshake/walking blur and all, odd that the world chose to tilt a bit for that frame ;)

The (possibly) interesting bit is that this is "cross processed"; shot on a 10+ year old Kodak Supra 400 negative colour film (C-41) developed in Rodinal (1+50, 14min at 24°C). It yields very very dense negatives (must be viewed against a window or a lamp to see anything, the histogram shows everything compressed into 20% at the highlights corner). Still, can be scanned. Some shot are even more crappy, they look like late 1980's/early 1990's bitmaps and thus quite limited. Fog & grain is aplenty (the roll has been kept in room temperature plus cosmic radiation that doesn't help).


Did this test to see if it is doable at all, have a roll of Agfa HDC at my parents house that I shot in the late 1990's or early 2000's that I want to have a go at.

The jagged top comes from photoshops paint bucket, was a bit lazy.

Thanks for the attention folks :) So "bad it's good" perhaps? :P

Experimenting was fun, will try another roll in Kodak D76 or Ilford ID-11 and see if it's any better for this. At any rate, my objective will be to try fishing for some detail in the forgotten roll shot some 10-15 years ago. The developer came out dark yellow when poured out (fitting that it went down the WC) and the fixer was pink... Didn't want to re-use it ;)
