Vinegar effects on film material

All Film makes use of chemical reactions to capture your images. As a result when film ages it begins to degrade. Cellulose acetate film goes through a process known as the “Vinegar syndrome”Where molecular bonds and acetic acid is released producing a vinegary smell.

 

Digitization is the ideal and cost effective method for preserving home use film.
