Found film

Hi Everyone,

I recently picked up an Agfa Isoly III and realized it had film in it!

The last few frames were advanced and the roll turned out to be Isopan F.
Of course I'll develop it during my next lab session and wondered if anybody had experience with this
film and might suggest developing times with D76 1:1?

Many thanks, Tom
 
I found a can of kodachrome 25 (un-exposed roll) under the seat of my car. Had to have been 20 years old at least. Excessive heat and cold

Once shot and processed it had the grain of tri-x shot at 1200 asa and pushed.

Beautiful grain.

Un retouched shot



Amazing how things that should not work fall together
 
well you can try it, no idea what will come out. just be prepared for what you see. As a result its best to develop found film at home.

This guy had good luck at 10 minutes. Hard to tell as the film is pretty old. You may want to give it an extra minute or two.
 
I'm not sure about the film you found. If I found a roll and was curious to develop it I'd do a stand development. Even for a brand new roll you just shot stand works well.
 
Hey Guys,
Developed the Isopan F today with mixed results.
Most of the roll was impossible to make out but I did get a couple of images to
work with. I only adjusted the brightness and contrast to something useful.
Kind of cool.
