Agfa ct18

Hi

I've discovered an unused film an AGFA CT18. It would have belonged to my father. In a recent move I found the canister tucked away in a small box.

Can anyone shed some light on this film. It would be at least 40 years old and has not been kept refrigerated.

Would it be OK to use?
What would the processing required be?
Any other info would be great.

Thanks in advance

might be best just to keep the canister and not use the film.

Nice results (images) from your link, but I think that getting the film developed might cost more than its worth. I'm also in Chile and finding a place that will develop this film might be nigh impossible.

Thanks for your reply

I don't think it's worth much, unless you are into this kind of thing, like the person in the link. I have used a few years old film with good results, but not 40 years old.

My Dad swore by it back in the 70s/80s... but I wouldn't use it today IMHO!
