    Today's screw up, mixing LPD in spring water instead of distilled. I was perplexed at the initial color of my developer, then aghast at the scum forming on the surface of the mixing container. Then I turned the water jug to read the label, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhh hh. The bottle of spring water was on the shelf next to my distilled, I don't remember buying mineral water, I only buy distilled. Well, it's either money down the drain, or (here's hoping).

    well, since you bumped this thread, I am having difficulty keeping the film flat in my Bantam Special. The 828 reel is so tiny the film develops a very strong curl. lack of sprockets may also be a factor. I'm considering wedging the pressure plate to put more pressure on film but not sure that will help.

    just did the idiot thing last week when I was processing a 120 Ilford HP5, poured in the fixer first before the developer, film came out very very clean

    I doubt you will see much difference, honestly. I've mixed LPD with water fresh out of the tap for over ten years, and I haven't been able to kill a batch yet. I say relax. If you're really worried, keep a batch of LPD mixed with distilled on hand. Since it lasts pretty much forever, you can switch any time if you must.

    I know of some photo books which show a 3x3 matrix of negative images. The examples illustrate negatives which go from under-exposed and under-developed to over-exposed and over-developed. The negative in the center of the matrix shows a correctly exposed and developed negative. This can be very useful to those new to photography is diagnosing their negative problems.

    I love the idea of a single chemical developer that is reusable and keeps well. I'm afraid I will have to reserve this developer for 120 sized film with no sprocket holes only. I am guessing that due to the non-agitation of this developer, it has a tendency to drip down from the sprocket holes creating lines on the negative. Anyone see this before?
