Here is the old 1942 16mm Kodachrome home movie I just scanned... https://archive.org/search.php?query=Sooner+or+Later+Y'all+End+Up+on+eBay The title came from a discussion they were having on a film collectors forum. One guy didn't like eBay, he wanted to buy film from yard sales. He was complaining he could find projectors, but he could not find any old films. I told him he has to suck it up and go to eBay. The pickers descend on estate sales at the crack of dawn, they gobble up old photos and any films and boom...Sooner or Later Y'all End Up on eBay! The scan is also an example of what the Retroscan can do. It is pretty much a raw scan. No image stabilization. Just slight color grading as Movavi software is not the best for color grading.
Hello all! I am currently working on a project with some old 8mm film. It was a roll of Kodachrome II that I found. I got it developed to B&W, as that is the only way most places develop it these days. However, the film is very faded. This is somewhat to be expected, considering it had been sitting undeveloped for upwards of 50 years. However, there is only so much I can do digitally to enhance the image. Is there any sort of chemical process that could be applied to the film after it is developed, to retrieve some of the image? Something that would boost the contrast? I'm assuming the answer is no, but I wanted to ask. Additionally, if anyone had any other suggestions or remedies, I would very much like to increase the clarity of this footage, as I am trying to track down the person who shot it. The footage is below for your convenience. Thank you so much! --------------- Here is the ungraded roll: Here is the graded roll:
