    I'd forgotten about the vitamin C in orange juice. Maybe I'll give it a try, just for the heck of it! Oh, and I do know about caffeinol, paRodinal, and other home-brew developers. I didn't mean to start a re-hash of discussions about them, just solicit opinions on OJ, since I didn't recall ever seeing it mentioned as a possible developer. FWIW, I didn't notice coffee amongst the products they had available, but they didn't provide viewers with a clear list, either.

    I tried this yesterday, it did develop the film when some soda was added, but the tank came open while agitating, and the lights were on so I sorta scrambled to get the developer to stop... was in for around 15 or 16 minutes.. the images that were visible were not really transparent (I assumed this was from not enough development time)... and I had to get out of there cause my time had run short (school hours)

    but for my first time to actually develop the film myself (and since he still wont let me use his film developer) I rather enjoyed trying orange juice!

    ADDITION: BTW, i used B&W film, T-Max 400

    They would have been better trying human urine (I guess you might be able to call it a common bathroom liquid, if not a kitchen one).

    tried coffee, didn't work

    I tried the afore mentioned coffee, couldn't get it to work... and I still haven't had time to replicate the original results with OJ (need to find out what kind it was, I just found it at school)... any suggestions for when using coffee? I found that OJ tends to make a froth that keeps coming back...

    Coffee developer is slow and is a pull & staining developer. You'll lose about 1 stop of speed so overexpose your film by 1 stop. It takes about 30 minutes to develop. You are using washing soda not baking soda to change the pH, yes?

    yes I am using washing soda, and thank you for telling me that I need some more exposure (really had no idea)... and good news, even though my OJ developed film never really became transparent enough, I still made a contact sheet and a enlarged print!... I'll try to post them tonight maybe..

    doesn't it have to be something someone has heard of to be a myth --- OJ as developer is not one I have heard.
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...
