    Fuji Velvia Numbering

    G'day - I buy Velvia Quickload 4*5 trannies.

    Each sheet has an identification umber on the outside sleeve that covers the film – I use this number on my notes as I expose the film thinking that it a unique identifier– for example AJ-0457.

    The exposed transparency when it comes back to me has two numbers marked on the film – in the above case
    - AJ-AEIJ
    - 595255
    That is - nothing like the number on the sleeve! Now – how do I relate the number on the sleeve to one of those two numbers? How do folks know which velvia tranny belongs to which "note"?

    I think I'm missing something here.

    regards

    Um...I guess take notes with more shot identification than a number?

    I write my own numerical code on the quickload. I then tell the lab to "keep codes". They in turn write my code number down on a sticker that is attached to the protective sleeve of each shot. I can then correlate this number to my notes for that days shoot. Easy. Simple.

    Save the sleeves. The first two letters will be on the film, and then you can figure out the sequence of the remaining 4 letters to numbers by sorting. The letters cycle from A to I, like hexadecimal, but the numbers are of course regular base-10/decimal. I've tried to figure it out, but I think there are occasional gaps in the series so letters and numbers do not directly correstion to decimal-hexidecimal conversion as one might hope.
