Where to get Kodak Verichrome 620 print film processed

Steve Pruitt , Oct 19, 2007; 04:42 p.m.

I just found an old Argus box camera from the 40's in my mom's closet. It had a 10 print roll of Kodak Verichrome 620 B&W print film in it that had been exposed. I'd like to get it processed. My local photo guy does not have a 'spool' that will hold it to process. Any ideas where I can go to see if this can be developed?

Contact Gene M here on this forum, he processes a lot of vintage rolls and knows how to handle them.

Isn't 620 the same film as 120 just on a different spool?

Dwayne's in Kansas will definitely do it, and well. They get good press here at P/N and I use them for 35mm. Reasonably priced, and good.

Any place that can handle BW 120 should be able to do it.

I second Gene M.

The issue is less that it's 620 (same size as 120), and more that it's Verichrome, not Verichrome Pan. That means it's very old, undoubtedly more than fifty years. Treating it like relatively recent Verichrome Pan will probably result in very badly fogged film. Whoever processes it should have some experience with old film, like Film Rescue International (who don't charge if the film is blank).

Thanks everyone for the info on gettting my 620 processed. It is in fact Verichrome Pan 620 so not so old. Gene M: can you contact me at spruitt@archplus-sv.com so I can coordinate getting this film to you or getting more advice? Steve Pruitt
