    Well, I had a good outing with Polaroid 665 negatives today compared to my last outing with it a few weeks ago. My first outing my clearing/hardening solution container was leaking and the film was not peeling as good as i thought it should (small pin pricks of emulsion were coming off the negative. I thought maybe trying 665 negs in the field was a BAD idea, but today was very enjoyable. I had a better container, and better tongs. I also fixed the emulsion peeling problem by pulling the film out of the holder very slowly. Since slowing the pulls I have had perfect peels. Unfortunately it started raining so I only had time for 1 shot. Really looking forward to my 3 day weekend next week and getting some more negs and printing :smile:
