Although the Queen of England is still the constitutional head of Government, (much to my ongoing dismay) I am in Australia so it might make sense to swap around me and Black Dog.

Earlier in the thread someone mentioned sending out a Holga for another round so i thought about cross processing! I could donate some E6 for that round if anyone is interested in that sort of thing. I think a Holga with E100 VS cross processed would be interesting!

Develop E6 in C41 chemistry. You get saturated colors and weird color shifts.

Okay my cross processing is processing all color film in Caffenol C, just did a roll of outdated Kodachrome, and it came outquite good, there's a caffenol group on APUG where you'll find a little more detail.

Here are some examples for a Flickr group.

Jeez, here I was all interested in the possibilities for Round 8, when I realized you weren't talking about cross-dressing...

As I believe I have said already...
You don't have to be mad to come here... but it sure helps! :confused:

I've played with Caffenol C, but never tried it with color film. Can't wait to try that! Wonder if I can get to it before camera 7 arrives. ;)

As far as I'm concerned, Caffenol is the prefect solution to unusual situations : outdated films, films found in some of the old cameras I buy, even old, exposed films that friends and relatives have left in a cupboard for a couple of decades. Color films as well as B&W.

More likely than not, Caffenol will give negatives that are scannable, in most cases printable even, though colors are lost in translation.

Caffenol is a lot more forgiveable than commercial developers, I think the trick is hidden in the long developing times, compared to the commercial stuff, typically 20 mins to 1 hour, depending on the concentration and brew, compared to 5 to 15 minuites in the commercial stuff.

I know I have some old films myself somewhere that I still havent found, 30+ years since exposure, I bet Caffenol will save what can still be saved, when I find those films I will report the outcome in the Caffenol group.

Caffenol sounds like it would be perfect for resurrecting the film out of camera 6 then... :laugh:

Cameras 7a and 7b are ready to roll.. :D

Everything you need to know has been included in the envelope containing the cameras.. They begin their journey tomorrow morning and as outlined in the enclosed "instructions" when you receive the camera you MUST post in the thread to keep everyone up to date.

I was planning on starting a new thread specifically to follow the journey(s) and ask everyone if they could subscribe to it - that way updates would be easy to find and any changes easy to monitor.

If you would rather I didn't do this please let me know as soon as possible and I'll post updates in here instead..

Good luck everyone!

Keeping camera 7 to one thread would not be a bad thing.
I have no preferences one way or t'other.
