    Slightly pink hue?

    Ok.. Developed a roll of 120 this weekend and noticed that they had a slight hue of pink. Is my fix getting tired or d-76?

    What film? I know with films I have been using (Delta 400, Tmax 100) they have a slight tint but if there is a lot of pink it's a sign they're not fixed enough. I had to re-fix some negatives a few weeks ago.

    if it's one of the "newer film types" (T Max/Delta) then you need to fix them for 50% longer to get rid of the Pink tint.

    From memory when T Max first came out Kodak used to recomment using a particular solution to clear the pink tint form the film base....

    I forgot which film has the pink tint. I think it's Tmax. You just need to wash it longer. It will eventually come out. If your developer was tired, then you get totally clear or very thin film. If your fixer was tired, you get creamy film with sort of fogging looking thing all over.

    I think what you are observing is the dye... which will wash out if you wash longer.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    It's common with Tmax. I have a green hue in my fix from processing Arista EDU.

    I've seen the same pink hue with Tri-X 400 lately and assume that, like with T-MAX, a refix is called for.

    Slightly pink hue?

    So what happens if I don't refix it? Will anything bad happen? I've seen the same thing for the newer tri-x 120 I've bought, but the older tri-x is fine and I haven't changed anything in the process... Older like 6 months older... Vs new from store...

    A refix is in order. You may experience image degradation if you dont.

    If the red hue indicates poor fixing (and people more knowledgeable than me say so), you are bound to see all the problems associated with poor fixing, in several years at least.

    a two-bath fixingandusing a washing aid followed by a 15-minute was will get rid of the pink, or live with it,because it does not that it harm anything.it is purely cosmetic.
