Last week I bought 4 rolls of 620 Kodak Vericolor II Type S that expired in 1976. Yesterday I shot a test roll, and this what I got. This was scanned in full RGB color, but the green and blue channels are pretty much empty. It seems that with the age of the film it has become mostly only sensitive to red light. The film was originally 100 asa and I shot the roll at 25 asa, but it probably could use another 2-3 stops exposure.

I wondered what that was when I saw it on your Flickr steam. I believe I have a VSCO filter that basically does the same thing.

I'm sure you didn't expect perfect results from that roll, now you just have to find scenes that will work with it

Update - I tried out the VSCO filter. Note this is not a film image.

I posted this to the Film Shooters Collective and thought I'd put it up here and on Flickr as well - I just find the different scene renderings more interesting than I thought I would.... She'd be irritated that I posted these, but hey, it's in the interest of "science"? I threw together this triptych simply for comparison - It's really nothing more than me shooting a single frame, while we were sitting at my folk's house a couple weeks back, using each camera I had with me at the time.

From top left clockwise:
1. Franka Solida III with Radionar 80/2.9 on Ektar 100
2. Pentax 67 with Tak 105/2.4 on NHG II 800 (EI 400)
3. Pentax MX with A-24/2.8 on HP5 Plus (box I think)

Which do you prefer - different stroke for different folks - I'm sure opinions will be varied.

I like all of them and would be hard pressed to choose a favourite.

I prefer the color of the 1st, and the bokeh of the 2nd, a tad less harsh on the frame on the background.

It's interesting just to see what happens. I'm not really a fan of the redscale look though.

I did a B&W conversion using basically the red channel only and it actually looks decent. As a reference, the Mustang was a vibrant darker cherry red.

Looked like it would, decent tonal range.

For me the scene looks better in B&W, but the 6x7 shot is probably the "best" overall.

The black and white is the best photograph, very nicely framed (/cropped?).

Just shaved a bit of the top and bottom, not for framing sake, but making it fit into the triptych I'd selected without spending more time making them all fit "properly".

I think I like the Solda best. But then, I've developed a real fondness for 6x6 lately. (To the point that my 6x7 is sitting practically unused.)

Exactly my reaction.

A few days ago I shot another roll of the 41 year old 620 Vericolor II in my Medalist. This time at asa 1 (2 seconds at f/16 in daylight). This time I got a bit of color.

Interesting result. It almost looks hand-tinted.
