I don't think so but it does mean if Jessops go out of business we will be able to buy our darkroom supplies from Starbucks

Don't drink the developer after you are done, the film might be ok,but you will be overagitated. I guess Starbucks will make a high speed developer, just like some of their extra bold blends.:D Russell

How do the negatives look, Kenneth?

 

Andy- I haven't tried it myself but I plan to with a roll of Tri-X 400 which the article suggests should be shot at 100 asa. What do you think about shooting Tri-X 400 at 100 asa Andy?. I am not sure I will go the whole hog with the vinegar stop bath and salt water fix though.

 

On the more practical side this could be wonderful for photographers who are allergic to chemicals

Definitely worth a go. Film is cheap, Nescafe cheaper.

 

TriX is regularly exposed at 200, so I don't see a problem.

 

Might have a go myself, but do the whole supermarket hog with it. In for a penny and all that. I will post results here if I do.

Tweaked Mark Anthony receipe with water stop & alkaline fixer, 15 minute wash. Scanned and converted to grayscale. Leave as RGB if you like a tint.

I can see a future thread on this forum:

 

"Which developer do you prefer: African Dark Roast or Breakfast Blend?"

 

"Well, actually, I prefer Tri-X shot at 200 ASA in French Roast (coarse grind) for 11 minutes at 68F."

Developer formulae, dilutions, and times

 

But I like this one better (W665 Windisch):

 

W665:

700ml water,

65 grams Sodium Sulphite,

8 grams Ortho-phenylene Diamine,

8 grams Metol

7 grams Potassiummetabisulphite

 

Developing temperature 18-20 degrees C.

 

After the fix process you have to remove a solarisation layer with 2-3% Acetic Acid (HAc) or 2-3% Hydrochloric Acid (HCl). A very fine grained negative is comming up then.

 

Rollei Pan 25 in W665 for 14:00 Minutes and a small part out of the 35mm negative.
