  1. I am going to start developing my own films (mainly Kodak Tri-X 400). And I found a good deal starter kit on a German website. It contains: - a Paterson two film tank with two spirals - a thermometer - a 25 ml measuring cylinder - 100 ml of ADONAL film developer (New from 2016) - 100 ml of ADOFIX Fixer - 50 ml of ADOFLO wetting agent - an exposed film in order to reherse the film spooling process I think adonal is the new brand name for Rodinal. Should I go for it or make my own kit depending on the discussion went on one of the forum threads? What is your opinion?
  2. I was just surfing some low light B&W images online and noticed that one some, there was a lot of "noise" in the shadows. I know from my own experience that when my scanner tries to adjust the underexposure, that's what happens. So a question occurred to me; what is the effect of an underexposed low light shot when printing with an enlarger? Will there be some specks in the shadows? I'm just asking out of curiosity, I've never (not yet) printed that way.
  3. I was messing around this morning and was wondering how to develop just a partial roll. It started because I had a roll of Tri-X 135-36 in the camera and was impatient to make sure that everything was ok. I had shot 14 shots so I took a sacrificial roll and marked off 14 frames using a sharpie and then I started it threading onto a Paterson roll and counted the "ratchets" so that 14 shots got onto the roll. Then I threaded the real film onto the roll and went into the dark bag. I ratcheted it the same number of times and put it into the tank. After developing I found that it worked perfectly..the exact right amount of images was developed. I put the rest of the film back into the camera. Good to know. You veterans may know this already but it's new and interesting to me
  4. I had light bands at the top and bottom of my images and i was sure that it was a light leak from my new camera. I surfed the web and caught some discussions showing images just like mine. The suggestion by some knowledgable members of different forums (Roger Hicks being one of them) suggested that my agitation technique was to blame. I couldn't see how that could be but then found a Youtube video showing a guy who agitates much more vigorously than I'd have thought should work (not sure of his name but he's got an epic beard) and so I tried it. Well...long story short, it fixed a host of little issues that I've been having; specks of chems in my negs, light bands, slightly uneven developing...etc. I would have never believe that this would be narrowed down to agitation but it was. Just thought I'd mention it for anyone who has the same issue.
  5. I have some 24x36 rolls, primary Tri-X and one single Fuji Provia 100F, i want developed. I wan't it done in a professional quality since some of the B/W prints will be printed in 40x60 cm. I've been searching professional dealers in UK, but there are so many that i can't get it right, which to choose. Do you have any preferred professional lab in the UK, that could the job? And that delivers a good value for money?

    M6 Newbie!

    Hi all, Long time reader first time contributer..blah blah blah.... I have just purchased my first Leica...and M6 Classic with 50mm f2 summicron. Am hoping that this will improve my photography as I was becoming far to dependant on my Canon 20D's automation and the dreaded 'Auto' fuction! Can anoyone here give me some tips on how to progress. I have soo many ideas swimming around my head....My starting plan is to shoot b&w, colour film and colour slides to see which yiled the best results for me... When it comes to devleoping is it common to do this in a bag and scan into a computer? or shoudl i send of for slides or negatives and then scan? Will scanning make my moveto film/slides redundant? So many options...i am keen to hear what people think is the best approach to starting out with film...and maximising the quality of results when you have no darkroom and limited funds... Many thanks. Jim
  7. I'm having an old lpl stainless steel tank and spiral. 30 years ago I developed all my film in this assembly. Spooling was no problem at all. I could do it while having a cup of coffee ;=)) To get used again to this spooling I tried some older Cinefilm and there was no problem at all. Now I do try newer b&w films, and I have the impression that they are much thinner (emulsion and film base) then the older films making it much more difficult to spool the film on the spiral. What is your impression. Would a plastic spiral (jobo 1510?) be better / easier?
  8. Just got my M6 today! Any suggestions on good photo printing shops in West London? Around Bond/Baker Street? Seems like all the good places are in East London. Many thanks.
  9. I've been thinking about it for some time, but I have finally decided to give it a go. I'm talking about popping off a roll of Tri-X and souping it at home. I have never developed a film in my life, so I would like some guidance, please, as to: 1. What equipment do I need? I think I need: - a daylight changing bag (yes I know I can black out a room but I'm assuming that this is easier) - a film can opener - a light-tight tank - a reel to go in the tank - a clip to hang the roll up with - a set of tongs to dry it off 2. What chemicals do I need? - insert as applicable 3. What do I do? I appreciate that this may all seem noddy, but please be gentle with me. I have done some internet searches and can find most of the equipment either as part of a kit or separately, but I cannot find a "starter" kit for chemicals. All the ones I have found so far seem to be big containers and I know that some of them (all?) can oxidise so I would prefer small ones to start with. To be clear, the end result I am aiming for at this stage is developed negs that I can scan myself - I am not going to wet print... yet... Thoughts? Suggestions? Resources etc that you can point me at? Regards, Bill
