    I didn't realize it was that easy.

    Neither did I. It seems that I consume ingredients of film developer every morning with my coffee and OJ.

    it is pretty much the best, least effort developer that exists
    as long as you get the right ingredients it will work ...
    and the measurements aren't as critical as the
    video-guy said ... i haven't measured anything in almost 6 years

    Quite a well-made video, but doesn't he put the centre column upside down into the tank? The flat part should be on the bottom.

    Thanks for the link; now I have an option to drink the developer if I don't like how the film turns out

    What is the "active ingredient" that enables the development?

    And if coffee and vitamin c can develop film, why is normal developer so toxic?

    i'm not scientist, but from what i understand from people in "the know"
    it is the caffic acid in the coffee that developers
    the soda changes the ph ( adds fog too ) and the vit c from what i understand
    increases speed and contrast ...

    reinhold knows way more than me: http://caffenol.blogspot.com/


    it has to be robusta coffee, arabica coffee doesn't have very much ( if any ) caffic acid.
    the robusta coffee is usually the cheap stuff that sells in instant coffee, not in boutique coffee shop.

    if you are interested ( and have a coffee pot! ) i have a bunch of robusta beans ( GREEN! ) and roasted
    that works even better than instant ( for me at least ) ...
    instant is mostly robusta, but still often times is "cut" with arabica so it tastes better ...

    have fun!

    If you soak ground coffee for 12 hours in cold water, then filter it out (1 can of cheap coffee to 12 cups of water is what I use), you get a basic coffee syrup of sorts. If you use good coffee, by all means drink it; it makes great iced coffee, watered down a bit (2 or 3 to 1). If you use cheap coffee, use it as developer.

    Once you add washing soda, all thoughts of drinking the stuff will quickly leave your mind; it smells like the grease trap in a bad diner kitchen. I have had some film come out quite stained, other film seems just a bit less contrasty when viewed in the sleeves than normal. All have printed beautifully.
