A mistake at the developers leads to a different type of X-Pro. Read about this happy accident after the jump!
One time, while dropping off my film at the developers, I had a half dozen rolls of black and white rolls and one lonely roll of expired roll of Solaris 100. When I returned the next day, the shop keeper looked upset. He felt terrible that the employee was on a roll (so to speak) and just threw that poor color roll in with the black and white. I wasn’t mad because it was only a test roll for a batch of this expired Solaris film I bought, but he insisted my order was free. Curiosity still had the better of me and I had to scan the results. I could still get about fourteen usable images, with heavy grain. I am not sure if you could time the chemicals yourself and get better results, but I found this to be a happy accident and a learning experience.
What do you think about this unusual way to x-pro? Have any of you guys tried it, and got interesting results? Tell us about it!
