Home > Specialist > C22 Processing

C22 Processing

C22 Process is a now obsolete process for colour negative film (print film) and was the predecessor to the current process C41 in use today. C22 was superceded by C41 in 1972 so any films around today, unprocessed, are very old indeed and the likelihood of them containing good images is pretty low.

We have now formulated a suitable process for C22 films and we found that the best way of achieving images out of these very old films is to process for a black and white image. All our attempts to achieve colour images have been very difficult indeed and we therefore recommend to customers that a black and white image is the most reliable option for obtaining useable results.

PLEASE NOTE: as hand processing is time consuming and uses discrete batches of chemistry, we generally wait till we have a batch of a few films for processing before undertaking it. This often entails a delay of between 1 to 4 weeks before we can return films, so please be patient!
