    I think I'm right there with you. You might have an edge by a couple rolls. This almost never happens with my black-and-white roll film, and I always process large format immediately. My color stuff tends to sit for years; I have rolls of slide film I shot for a grad school project that got derailed in 2008. So I just got a Unicolor C41 kit and an Arista E6 kit. Haven't processed my own color since about 1995, but here we go!

    I used to be bad about letting exposed film sit around and not process it. In the last three years I have really made an effort to develop my black and white quickly and send out my color film to the lab at regular intervals. Now I just need more time to print things up in the darkroom. A few weeks ago I had printed up a bunch of snapshots of our daughter and granddaughter and those got snapped up by my "models" so fast it made my head spin. It is nice to be appreciated.

    I rarely print anything actually. I do scan though. And tomorrow I am starting to develop 37 rolls of colour film. I can only do 10 rolls at a time so I guess It wel taken the rest of the week to process. And then to scan it.

    One important tip:

    Don't assume that it is best to develop the rolls "oldest first"

    Do develop your current work as you shoot it (so the backlog doesn't grow), plus a few rolls from your backlog each time.

    +1 - but I use 16 rolls per 1.25 liters just to be extra sure.

    As you describe yourself as a 4" X 5" shooter (I guess you mean 5" X 4"), how come all the films you display are not.

    it's not about quantity, because a camera is not a machine gun.

    I dump TF-4 after 15 and I keep track. I figure that it's a relatively cheap fixer and there's no reason to tempt fate.
    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.
