    I put a question mark on that because the capsule might be empty. In going through old boxes in our home, I found an old 8mm film magazine. This is the magazine that would have been put into the camera and then turned in for developing. So this film has definitely not been developed.

    Its Kodachrome II Type A. The metal magazine is embossed with "This magazine is the property of Kodak." I hope I'm not in trouble.[​IMG]

    I'm wondering if it was exposed and if yes, is it still good? And if I were to try to develop it, who would do it? I don't want a film reel as the final product, I'd rather get a vhs tape or a dvd.

    Does anybody do that kind of thing anymore? Probably be expensive too.

    Well if I were more observant I could have known more. The cannister was in a cardboard carton on which is written: "House Pictures - Exposed." I think its my father's handwritting. Both my parents have long since passed.
