Trying to date film prints
I recently saw a print of Barry Lyndon and wondered what the print date was. My guess was that it was from the 1999/2000 era of prints made around EWS and Kubrick's death.

The info I got was that it was stamped Agfa-Gevaert between sprockets and had blue edges. So I guess it's from sometime in the 90's or so then?

Kodak has symbols in between sprocket that allow you to id the year the print was made. Maybe Agfa has something similar?

Agfa didn't use date codes.

Yeah there are usually no date codes for Agfa. All I know is it’s roughly equivalent to LPP and probably a 90’s print. The blue edges make me think later too but Agfa prints sometimes had blue for optical.

I was just curious if anyone had ever dealt with these and as with anything Kubrick related I try to get as much technical info as possible.

Thought it might be a good thread to have for other people liking to date or figure out where a particular print came from.

You might have better luck asking on Film-tech, 16mmfilmtalk, or 35mmforum
