C-22 is a color film type long since dead (late 70’s), and the chemicals to process it are no longer available. Here at Old School Photo Lab, we process these old films into a black and white negative. As the quality of the films vary greatly depending on age and storage, we recommend only ordering scans at first, then ordering prints if the images are worth printing to you. The quality of the negatives can range from good to very poor, but most of these old films have salvageable images.

Questions and Answers about C-22 Film Processing:

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.
