I am a little bit behind in my film processing....
« on: February 13, 2007, 10:10:13 PM »

A long time ago, 29 January 1988 to be precise, I was a newspaper photographer in Australia covering a royal tour with the late Princess Diana and Prince Charles. I shot at least 5 rolls of Ilford HP5 on that day, rated 800.  For reasons that escape me now, I didn't process 5 rolls from that day but think it is probably about time that I do.

My question is, does anyone have any idea of a suitable processing regime for such old film?   As I have 5 rolls I can do a few clip tests but it would be good to have an opinion from someone who has a better idea than do I.

Believe it or not this is a serious request.

Cheers from Downunder.

Goto APUG and ask the question there. There are a couple retired Kodak emulsion engineers there, one is Ron and goes by the handle/monniker of Photo Engineer, who could definitely answer your question. He's probably developed all of today's modern Kodak films. Even if the film isn't a Kodak product, he's quite knowledgeable in all film emulsions, plus there are folks from Ilford too.

Regards, Art.
