3M Color Slide (35mm, 100 ISO)

An old slide film produced in Italy. This film expired more than 25 years ago. Result: a dream.

The 3M Color Slide is a very interesting film to cross-process. It was produced in Italy and is extremely grainy. Maybe this is only because my roll expired in the mid 80s and I found it in a totally filthy flea market shop. I then put this into my LC-A and it surprised me. I was really scared that nothing in the photos can be recognized or that the laboratory may send the film back because it somehow smelled quite disgusting. After chemicals, urine, and so on.

The results are a dream. All the pictures are gritty and ultimately all have a strong green / yellow tinge. Especially those that have been taken under the open sky and in bad weather. The colors are very soft images at the most, despite the cross-process. It’s almost like having a normal color negative film. The pictures were all very varied, a lot of changes which I had not expected

As usual: Be sure to buy when you find one!

    Which iso setting did you used? This is a 100iso film so you used 100iso also in the camera or you overexposed a bit the film?

    I just dropped off 120 slide film that expired in 1982. I am also cross processing. I am so excited to see the results. I hope they are as good as yours! :)
