Hi everyone This is my first post on APUG. I have been lurking for a bit and finally decided to jump in I got a major itch that I need to scratch, I want to process my own black and white film. I shoot 35mm and really have only used tri-x 400. The last couple rolls I shot I sent off to the lab at my local supermarket kiosk where it took roughly 10 days to get the prints back. Reading around I know it takes a couple hours to process this stuff and would be cheaper to do it my self (minus the up front cost) plus I get more control over when and how I want stuff done and most of the time, I just scan the prints and load them up in photoshop and tweak them further. Why pay for prints I aint going to use? So my plan was to develop the negs the way I want them, push em pull em and a ton of other things and scan the frames I like and then go from there and If I really like the frame, I can take the neg some place and have it printed up for real. Besides, this stuff looks fun Right now I have 2 cameras, a Canon elan 7N and olympus OM-1. I shot digital as well but I broke my 300D (don't ask) and I am saving up for the 30D, or maybe a 20D should I get really desperate for a digital. I have been thinking of processing my own film for a while, been scanning the web and every thing else and even made a shopping list: Developer - Ilford DD-X (was going to get Xtol but 5 liters it a little much) Stop bath - will have to find local, thinking indicator stop bath Fixer - Kodafix Some kodak hypo and photoflo I was going to use a Jobo tank to process the film A couple graduates 50ml and 600ml There are a couple other things not on the list that I know I need, something to mix the soup in and storage bottles. Some extra tri-x rolls, eventualy a bulk roll of the stuff and loader to go with it to play around with I hope to place the order very soon Anyone have any comments or suggestions about my list?
