    old developer problems

    Just wondering. What sort of trouble would you expect from developer that has been sitting too long? Muddied shadows? Dullness? Graininess?

    Severe under development, even blank negatives. If in doubt clip test.

    I'd expect you to waste the film. Don't do it.

    However, this assumes you really have left it too long. If you're not sure if that's the case, you can do a test with an unimportant piece of film (a film leader, e.g.).
    Jim MacKenzie - Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?
