So, the lab partially ate my 2 rolls of 120 positives. Parts of the rolls are wrinkled, while some (like this) have some odd effects - part of this frame almost looks like a negative.

Additionally, my dad had mentioned that often when he gets medium format transparency scans they have a horrid blue cast that is hard to work with. Sure enough, these did, although a previous batch from a different processor were fine. I think these rolls were also underdeveloped, possibly as a result of them getting bunched in the machine. The film base is red/orange instead of black, the color is really blue shifted. The film base is so shifted that the shadows still have a lot of red - in fact the red channel looks solarized.

So dad, check that the film base is a rich black next time!
