    It'd doubtful it's static charge in Florida w/ all the humidity. If you had the same issue w/ another camera, it's probably not the camera. I'm not sure what's wrong, but it might be easiest to shoot another roll and change some of your protocols.

    Your times and temps are fine (I assume you're agitating correctly). Just to be sure, make sure the camera is scrupulously clean inside, use only distilled water, use a funnel & a paper coffee filter w/ some marbles or round clean rocks to help w/ the pouring when you fill your gradients, give the tank regular sharp raps on the counter during all phases, and whip the negs when they come out of the photo flo a couple of times to remove some excess water. Makes sure that where you hang your film to dry is dust and draft free too.

    To me they look like drying marks on the, repellant, base side ofthe film. Longitudinal droplets tore apart whilst drying up and each leaving thus such an array of marks.

    This really looks like water marks to me. I could be wrong, but rewashing won't hurt. The water will drip down the strip and can leave small spots that you don't see until it's dry. Not all the water gets to the bottom of the strip before it evaporates. I'd suggest letting it dry in a slightly more humid area - when mine dries too fast, I'm more likely to get marks. Try rewashing it and maybe adding a little methanol to the last rinse. Hang it at an angle (tougher with 35mm, but easier if it's been cut already) so the water goes to the edge and out of the frames more easily.

    I think Thomas is correct. It's drying marks. Do you have hard water? If you do, you might try using bottled or distilled water for Photoflo. Some folks use a few drops of isopropyl alcohol instead of Photoflo. re-soak you negs and dry with Kimwipes or other lintless cloths.

    I'll also add that you really don't need to measure Photoflo. The merest tiny drop of the stuff is all you really need. I'd hazard to guess that 2mL is way too much.


    And here I thought you were going to post about taking pictures of Dave Matthews...
