Old Film development.
Author: K3HX

I've got a roll of Kodacolour 100 which was exposed 10+ years ago.

I'd be grateful to know of a place that will take a crack at processing it.

Be Well,

These are the guys! Do know that there are no guarantees with old film...it may be OK but there may be color shifting...and other weird effects...I have some old rolls myself, but I am going to take a chance....may be there's some shots that look arty! And it's a fact, some of my best stuff is of the "I didn't know that would happen" variety!

I happened upon a roll of Ecktachrome I exposed about 10-15 years previous and had it developed.  Major color shifts, unfortunately.  I scanned the slides into my computer and spent well over an hour apiece trying to rescue the colors.  I'd say I was about 80% successful before I decided it's close enough.  Believe it or not, it was one of the rolls from my honeymoon.  I divorced her 5 years later so she never saw the pictures.

Kodacolor 100 is a standard (and common) C-41 process. Any place that still does film processing should be able to handle it. Check with Walmart, Walgreens, CVS - many will be able to send it out for you.

I use Precision Camera in Austin, TX, because they offer higher resolution scans than Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS.

Best of luck to you
