    Welcome!

    I first read "stand developing in the fridge". I thought "Wow, what extreme kind of cold development"...

    Stand developing in th fridge. I thought only us Aussies in the outback did that to keep the chemistry temps around 20degC.

    Welcome. I use a lot of UN54 mainly in 16mm but also in 35mm. The 16mm is entirely B&W reversal and the 35mm is a mix of negative and reversal.

    I wish I had some kodalith to play with.
