I have no idea what went wrong with this roll of Porta 400, but here’s a short list of the issues I encountered:

- after developing it straightened out a bit (lengthwise), but remained twisted along its width, which made it very difficult to scan
I’m not sure what it is about the famous, mass-produced, pro-level films, but I think I encountered something similar with another rather expensive film stock.
