Bit Rot Stalks Your Digital Keepsakes

Lechter Re:Umm (535 comments)

It's not just a matter of the negatives, (color or b&w) so much as it's a matter of how they were developed. Masters like Ansel Adams & co. not only used better film, but they were also much more exacting in how the processed that film. Improperly stopped or fixed negatives (even when carefully stored) can deteriorate remarkably quickly....just ask a careless Photo 1 student. (not me, I was a careful Photo 1 student)
