    Hello! I finally tried out c-41 for the first time last night. The negatives dried pretty flat (120 film) but they have odd sort of streaking... looks like major drying marks. But when I scan the negs in, there's nothing visible like you'd think there'd be. Is this still okay? I'm wondering if it's because I didn't use deionised/distilled water to mix up the stabliser - we have fairly hard water here. Will optical prints make the marks show up more than the scan will? I do hope to eventually move onto room temp RA-4 development in trays.
