    Recommendations on stopping fungus from further damaging Ektachrome
    slides 50+ years old.

    What format used a square image (24mmx24mm) on regular 35mm film?

    What format used a 1/4 of a regular 35mm film frame? 50+ years ago.

    Any tips on scanning Ektachrome with a severe magenta cast?

    The format for a 24x24mm might have been 126 film.
    The format that used a 1/4 of a 35mm film I'm not sure but maybe half frame?
    If not, perhaps one of those stereoscopic ones but I'm really not sure. Ric

    My Nikon LS40 came with the ROC capability (that is Restoration of Color).
    All of my old E2 and E4 slides have the infamous red shift. Quite a few of
    my Kodacolor X negatives have some kind of shift as well. For example, the
    orange mask on the negatives usually turns out to be purple.

    ROC has managed to rescue almost all of the affected images.

    I have one roll of Anscocolor which has only lost contrast. I have one roll
    of Anscochrome which has much the same problem. It certainly would have
    been better if Kodak could only have made slide film with the stability
    quality of the Anscocolor.

  4. Well the 36x24mm frame is really a double frame.

    The Olympus '1/2 frame' is really the regular 35mm frame.

    If you quarter the original 24x18mm(?) frame you get a 16mm
    movie frame.

    There are some modern toy cameras that put 4 photos on a double-35mm
    frame but I don't remember seeing any old ones.

    There are passport and ID cameras that put 4 images on a
    Polaroid but that's a different pot of pisces.

    Funny how p's make you want to string them together. Putting
    p profundity proudly on parade by posting a plethora of p's...

  5. My stereo realist took 24 x 24 mm frames on 35 mm film....You could get like
    1/3 more pictures that way, but of course, you have to divide that by 2
    because they are stereo, so it took two frames per picture. But I have heard
    that there were other point & shoot style 35 mm cameras that used square
    "half-frame" too.......
