    C41 Developing - chemical economy/storage

    Just developed my first two rolls. I don't think I stuffed anything up though I felt more panicked than I thought I would as I wasn't using any sort of heating control and I forgot to measure the Blix out into a jug at the right volume about 30 seconds before I needed it, but got there just in...

    Archive Storage Options for Negatives, Slides, Prints & Media

    Any reason that you couldn't cut every other strip in half and just use the 6 strip version? I realise it may be a faff to scan in that instance, but if it is simply archive then may not ever be an issue?

    I could take it off your hands :naughty: But really, you should give it another try.

    Show us yer film shots then!

    There are some great photos in this thread recently. Love the shot of the Lloyds building by @AZ6 in particular, it has an amazing cinematic feel to it. This is just a random shot I took a few months back with a little XA2. Really must pick one up again, I don't know why I sell film cameras as...

    Offers in Classifieds

    People often price things on the high side. The offers can always just be declined. I think it would pretty much kill the classifieds if this were a rule.

    New M42 SLR with Instax Mini - Kickstarter

    Not sure how much this has been discussed on this forum in particular and I'm sure there are technical reasons beyond my understanding (probably surrounding the shutter) that prohibit this, but why has no one made a kick starter for a non-gimmick camera that uses 135 film and takes an existing...

    Who's gunna go LF togging tomorrow in a gale?

    I got out today for a wild walk on Exmoor, only 35mm camera for me though. I took 4 rolls of film and had 10 shots left in the camera but didn’t even load one new roll. Far too wet. Great walk though.

    C41 Developing - chemical economy/storage

    Thanks for the information chaps. I will have a look for a 2.5l kit I think and some extra bottles for storage.

    C41 Developing - chemical economy/storage

    As usual there are a lot of conflicting views on the internet about how long C41 chemicals can last. I don't mind buying in bulk but I don't get through a huge amount of film, on average a roll a week and averages about half and half black & white to colour. I would also like to make it as...

    “He who can does; he who cannot, teaches.”

    It would be better, but in my opinion at least, a majority of gear heads are not great photographers. Competent, yes, but not great. Conversely the majority of great photographers don't give a stuff about their equipment so long as it does the job for them. They don't upgrade because they fancy...

    “He who can does; he who cannot, teaches.”

    Knowing lots about photo equipment and taking good photos does doesn’t have a strong correlation. If the people in question give you the information you want then what is the problem? My mechanic knows how to fix a car but I don’t ask why he isn’t racing F1.
