Hello,

I got one roll of this:

Which I shot wrongly at 125 (I read on internet before I read the box).
Shows different tones on the borders of the film, as far as I know it was kept on a freeze.

Thank you for watching.

Not bad! Good shots, that lens is sharp indeed.

Fog would be the main problem, with that film age. It may be corrected (somewhat) when scanning, but the negs must be showing quite a bit of fog.

Give it about a 15% contrast boost in post processing, Alex. When I saw these on Flickr this morning I couldn't figure out just how you could get such results, but as soon as I saw the film roll shot I knew. I think the rule of thumb is a stop for every decade out-of-date, so you needed one more stop. Great details with that lens. It shows why people are willing to put up with how the camera handles.

So 4 decades already, 4 stops down as the film(320) was 50? 25?
These ones I shot them thinking it was 100ASA.

Tri-X Pan Professional was 320 ASA for normal development. I would rate your 1984 film at 200 as a starting point.

If the starting point is 200 the ASA I should shoot it is 12!!
Around speed 90 - f4 in a sunny day.
