Today was my first attempt at IR film in 120. I chot some scenics out in the Los Padres National Forest. I did about 1/2 of the exposures at the suggested exposure of 5.6 @ 1/60th or the equivilent, and the other half with my meter set to iso 50 plus compensating for thr red 25 filter on my lens.

My film just finished fixing, I decided to take a peek prior to washing it. Zero exposure on the film, nada, nothing, zilch... except for the side markings.

Film is Konica 750 that had expired in 2002, but had been in cold storage. Dev was Hc110 dil B 7 mins at 20c.

What the heck happened?

Not sure what happened, sounds like a camera fault, surely something would have shown up?

thats what I was thinking. The film did go all the way through the back, the take up reel was on the other side. And I Just checked the cam / lens and it is firing properly. Strange!

It does sound as if you loaded it inside out. I did that myself after using a couple of old folders for a while then going back to my Bronica I loaded the first film without pulling the paper backing the proper way off the roll.

I made the mistake of loading a film upside down in a roll back :-(

The start arrow is visible on both sides when loading grhhh fortunately I was testing some odd-ball film from China and did not have any valuable images.

Get this, took around 30 rolls of film for a 70th anniversary, people flew in from across the country. I used my jobo and was proceesing like a fiend. Down to the last five rolls and in my haste forgot to clip the baffle into the lid section. Processed the film, out and into the wash and arrgghhhhh film ends fogged, edges fogged into the image area.....and of course they had to be the specially arranged family shots - probably never to be repeated.

The moral of the story - to err is human.......

Well that's my excuse
