Questions and Answers about C-22 Film Processing:
What is C-22?
-C-22 was a type of chemical process used for color films in the 70s. It’s since been replaced by the current standard C-41, which is safer and better on the environment.
Can I get color images out of my old C-22 film?
The chemistry to make color photos from this film have long since been discontinued. We process all C-22 into a black and white negative.

Most C-22 film says it right on it. The most common name you might look for is Kodacolor-X. Other names may include: Anscocolor, GAF, ACN, Technicolor, Made In Belgium, Fotomat, Agfacolor.. If you’r not sure, feel free to contact us. We’re more than happy to help!
What quality of images can I expect?
It varies! Storage, humidity, heat and other factors can affect the film. Some old films look good, sometimes it’s all fogged to nothing, but most of this film has salvageable images. The only film we’ve never had any luck with is film labeled Triple Print. It may not be worth it if you have a roll of Triple Print film.
