I need a film guru-severely overexposed photos!

My father's wedding was in Florida last Monday and I decided to use some lomo 100 CN film on the trip. That was the only film I intended on taking with me, so that is all I had packed.

The ceremony was a short one, so in my haste to change out rolls in my camera, I didn’t really pay attention to the new roll I was putting in my Nikon Fe2. Although I meant to grab another roll of 100 iso film, I grabbed a roll of 800 that I didn’t even know I brought with me. I am nearly certain these cannot be saved in development because they are so underexposed. Can they be saved? What would you do?

    If you were metering at ISO 100 and you shot ISO 800. Then you've over exposed the roll. Mmm-maybe try developing it yourself? Maybe at a cooler temperature and shorter time? OR just have it developed; you might get something off of it; either way you're not going to get what you intended. Sorry my lomo friend.

    try ask your lab to pull the process 3 times, forced back from 100 to 800 but I don't think it would be the way though. just the best way you may do...

    and for the scanning process you could put the exposure setting to -300%, but idk how the color would turn out.

    Just pull it 3 stops. It's easier to pull than push and specially since it's color negative (not slide), I think there's a good chance it'll be okay. I made a similar mistake and had to pull this roll either 2 or 3 stops and I like how it came out: http://www.lomograph(…)os/18485035

    Good labs pull film if you demand it. Just ask to pull 3 stops. Nothing more, nothing less. The guy at the counter might not be the lab's technician. If you explain that you shot iso800 as 100 and that an overexposures should be compensated by bla bla and etcetera, you might confuse the guy and by the time your film goes in processing they push it instead of pulling it. Don't laugh: been there :(

    Sorry for this delayed response. Like what they said, it will be really overexposed. But like what @satomi said, tell the lab to pull it two or three stops. Hope it will be saved.

    You need to tell your processer that you pulled the film and they can attempt to recover it by appropriate developing.
