    C-41 party in Adelaide!

    I have more C-41 chems mixed up than I need right now. In 8 weeks time, I'm going to Europe for 6 weeks, so it would be good to make use of those chemicals before they go off, say a weekend in mid- to early-August.

    Do we have any takers for coming round to my place to develop colour-neg film on the cheap? I'll fire up the CPP-2 in the morning, people come around about 10:00 and we process film, eat lunch and talk crap all afternoon. Cost will be $3/roll and BYO food/drink. I can do 135, 120, 220 and (maybe by then) 4x5".

    I also have a Nikon 8000 so there should be opportunity to scan one or two particularly good frames that people might have, but not the time for whole rolls.

    Given that you've got about six weeks to shoot, who's in?

    Sounds like an interesting concept. Not sure on the dates, but I am definitely interested.

    Sounds fun but the commute would be a bit long for me.

    That sounds fantastic!

    Whilst I'm comfortable developing B&W, I'm a complete newbie with C41. Is your offer to do the developing for us, or to tell us what to do while we use your chemicals/equipment, or some other variant?

    Anyway, put me down for a tentative two people (myself and my better half), depending on the date/time.

    Whichever you like, really. We'll be using my CPP-2, which is a cheesy plastic contraption and a bit delicate but not hard to operate as long as you're gentle with it and don't dump my chems into the wrong bottle. You can certainly do your own loading onto the reels and take the risk (Jobo 2-series spirals are even more annoying than Paterson) of crinkling the film for yourself!

    I'll have about 15 rolls worth of developer capacity to use up, so it matters not so much how many people there are but how many rolls you all bring. A handful is cool, a bag of 20 each isn't. I have 3 spirals so can theoretically do up to 6 rolls at once by double-loading but I haven't tried that yet; you're welcome to try it.

    How about we set a tentative date for the 6th of August unless someone vehemently prefers the 7th? The following weekend is out for me due to booked events and after that I'm likely to be pretty busy with travel preparations.

    Either option works for me. I'll make a note of the 6th, unless you advise otherwise.

    polygot, I can bring you some replenisher if you need it, actually, would you like some ECN-2 developer and a couple rolls of 50D?
