I fell though the ice of my swampy pond. Trying to get that perfect shoot
Ice should be fine, just as long as you didn't expose it or heat it drastically trying to dry it
some of the other stuff swamp water has in it... the turbidity might get on the film, someone who develops in a dark room could make them come out right, talk to a photographer who works with film
Oh, no would never do that, I have too much experience with film to do that. In all my years. This is the first time that this had happened to me.
Well, let me think, acetates, umm, polymers are out, that would fuck it up, alum would work though, a slight rinse of DI water with about 8 ppm alum, and DADM if you can get it, they're called flocking agents used in water purification and cause all the crud like dirt, leaves, all that crap to clump together in water and float to the top, get it on top, slide it to the side with a paper towel, wash your film with more DI, or just rinse several times with DI water
Me neither, its my 1st time
Hope it’s ok
Will find out the film expired 1964
Swamp water. I fell into my frozen pond. I was trying to get that prize winning photo.
I think anyone who's seriously done photography has a story like that. I have two waterproof Point/Shoot units that I keep for hikes and kayak trips.As long as there isn't any silt that can scratch, I think a soak and rinse should do fine.
I'm hoping that the paper backing is not too messed up. . I was using vintage 616 film that expired in 1964. The camera I was using is brownie six-16Here is a photo I found on the internet of them. Once I run out of 616 mm film. I gonna to convert to 120 mm.
It seems separation from the emulsion is the main problem but one of the posts on this thread gave an idea on how to possibly save it.
I'll look at them

I started to research it and I found this from some guy. I'm going to try it.
I can relate to this problem. exactly what happened with me 2 years ago. I slipped into the river at the end of a whole day of shooting, about 5-6 Provia 100F exposed rolls in my pocket.This is what worked for me -- I came back to hotel and immediately put the rolls in the freezer (Took out all ice-trays etc so that there would be least moisture inside). After one night I put them in zip-locks *while inside the freezer* and then slowly brought out to room temperature.After I gave them to my specialist lab they confirmed it was a prudent thing to do to dry those inside the freezer. After processing some had water marks but most were OK!You may want to try and see if it works the same way for you...
That what the guy said
That would be cool to read about
I think it in the extras on the jaws dvd
Well I have it in the freezer right now. It hopes the film to end up sticking together. I will be developing it Saturday morning. I'll let everyone know how it came out.
Well, I'm going to try this freezer trick thing and see if it works
Nope, them are photos of different types of film for cameras. Have you ever seen film before?
No, but heard about it. Didn't know it was on a roll, I thought it was like printer paper.
There is film like that to
