    I usually rinse before swimming as well.

    ....wait, what are we talking about?

    On a side note: I've never once had spots or anything after pre-soaking my film; 120 Fuji film in a tank. I used to have that problem with stand development. Never since.

    I can remember tray processing a few 120 rolls of Verichrome using a red safelight in the early '50s.

    Yeah, Ron. I guess you are a few years older than I am.

Probably did that uphill both ways in the snow on the way to school, huh?
    I'll have you know that I'm still relatively young (in my 50s) and this is how I started as well - 44 years ago.

    It is surprisingly easy to do this well, although it is also extremely boring!

    It helps to have your father with you, giving you your first set of instructions.

    To do it properly though, you need a Kodak Tri-Chem pack
