Hey 8mm,

I have some Ektachrome 160 Type A, ELA 464, expired 05/1984.

For timing reasons, I'd like to look into hand processing this- either going for the negative, but also open to cross-processing.

I'm an amateur when it comes to processing. What kind of recipes are out there? What chemicals to use? Is it impossible/ a total gamble?

Hi Brighid.

I don't think there are too many people on this forum that are hand processing expired film. There are quite a few groups on Facebook such as "Super 8mm" where I see people posting about the results they got from processing expired film. If you posted your question to there, I'm sure you would get quite a few responses.

I am looking at doing similar with 16mm and found this link along with many others on YouTube.

Link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moUvV51TNmc

Once you get there as usual all manner of similar links to topics pop up.
A lot of very interesting watching & absorbing.
Currently looking at a Morse developing tank I bought on EBay & reading/watching ALL I can find on using that.

Many of the other YouTube videos advise what chemicals as well & I have found if you have a Q about some aspect contact the person who put the Video on YouTube & all so far have been very helpful.

Lindsay, thank you. Going down the rabbit hole to find all relevant topics! This is a perfect tip. Hoping to keep in color, but will reach out to Ben from this video you posted to see if he's worked out any cross processing techniques too.

I think Tetenal still make an E6 colour reversal processing kit - but it won't be cheap. In the past I have successfully processed a couple of cine films in a 35mm developing tank without the spiral in just with the film jumbled in. I wouldn't recommend that for a beginner. An old LOMO 16mm/8mm tank would be better but needs a larger volume of chemicals.
