Monday Quiz

Do you have some old slide pictures from previous generations? If so, you should scan and make digital copies as soon as you can because the dyes and physical make up of those old films are now beyond their expected lifetime. (Black and white prints, if processed and then stored correctly, have a considerably longer lifetime.)

The failures seen in this quiz are characteristic to certain brands of film. Having a rough idea of when those films were popular versus their typical failings and prejudices will be helpful when answering these questions.
