I've finally gotten around to developing some film taken from a trip to northern Japan/Kuala Lumpur/Cambodia earlier this year (Feb/Mar). Yes, yes, I know that it's important to develop film as soon as possible, but with limited resources it's not always possible for me, and I've never had problems with delayed processing in the past (film is always refrigerated until processed). I shot 3 of my last 4 rolls of HIE on that trip and while the content is good, the film is not -- almost all of the rolls display some degree of fogging, which I can't understand. They were definitely loaded in total darkness (and by that I mean in a changing bag in a dark room) and kept refrigerated until developed. Also, one of the rolls (the one with the least amount of fogging) seems to have what I think are pinholes -- the film is clear right through each of the holes, which occur over the entire film, including the rebate. Some frames have quite a few holes, others just one or two, and some not at all. Developed in D-76, with stop and fix as usual. I've developed over 30 rolls this way and have never had a problem before, but I'm wondering what could have caused it since the other two rolls developed at the same time don't exhibit this problem. Is it age of the film (exp. 2009)? Too long to have waited to develop it? The heat of SE Asia for a couple of weeks? Too many passes in the carry-on scanners at the airport? Cosmic radiation? Bad luck? I know it's easily fixed in photoshop, but is there any way that I might be able to print these negs traditionally to get rid of these unsightly black spots? Snow monkey crop Kuala Lumpur crop The most frustrating thing for me is, when I really didn't know what I was doing with HIE the negs look great -- including all the times I loaded the film in daylight. Now, no matter what I do, no matter how careful I am, my last and final rolls have exhibited so many different problems!
