Hi everybody, I have an outdated box of agfa scala sheet film, but unfortunately in Mexico the developing process is no longer available, How can I develop it by my own? I guess there are some different chemicals or not?
Than you so much in advance

If you do a web search for WJ's Infrared and Photography Home Page, I believe you will find some info there. Lots of other cool stuff, too.

Worst case: get a Diafine kit, shoot the Scala at the box speed of ISO 200, and process it as negatives. The speed increase of the Diafine ought to neatly offset the speed loss of processing a reversal film as a negative...

Have a look here. It's a guide from Ilford on light reversal processing of b&w film. The Agfa process is a light reversal process.

If you want to consider sending the film out, have a look here. Dr5 has developed a chemical reversal process for b&w film and will do Scala in this process.

Thank you so much, but this process can be used in the now extinct Scala 200?
Best regards

Yes, not a problem. The expiry date on film doesn't mean the film can't be used anymore. It's just an indication that the film may (stress may) no longer be at its best. Colour film will undergo a shift in the colours, sometimes the colours will be muted sometimes they'll shift to other hues. With b&w film what can happen is you can get a bit of fogging on the film or sometimes the contrast will be lower. But the film can still be used and processed.

People keep film in a refrigerator or freezer for years past the expiry date. I've got film that's over 10 years old sitting in my freezer and it's still fine.

Go ahead and use it, process it yourself or send it out. As long as it hasn't been sitting out and exposed to large temperature swings or hasn't been sitting in the bright sunlight all the time it should still be fine.

I'm new to this forum and this thread however the development of Scala was a topic on another forum I belong to. Here's the url for the discussion and thread.
