    I seem to have trouble loading the film onto the reels alot of the time... I use lint free fabric gloves to handle the film and only ever touch the edges and the back side of the film... No issues with fingerprints or scratches yet...
    Good questions by the way Jason... I'm still learning all this stuff too...
    Also some of the replies have been incredibly tenchical for such a newbie thread... I dont understand half of the posts...

    Jump in and ask about the items that aren't making sense. We've all been newbies.

    I use cotton gloves that I buy at my camera store. They are much more comfortable when you are doing complex dry work.

    I buy a pack every time I go to the camera store as well, but mainly use them to handle my negatives after they've been developed. They're really cheap and each one is stitched a little differently, so they never fit right. I can't imagine reeling the film onto the spool with these gloves.

    I'll try reeling the spool with both the cotton and nitrile gloves. If not, I'll have to use my bare hands and be as careful as possible

    Hahaha I agree Nathan. A lot of times things just fly over my head, but I'm slowly picking up on some of the terminology.

    I think once I get into the actual process of developing my own film, things will come along faster, but things have been very hectic lately, so I won't be able to get my feet wet until a week or two.

    It's all very exciting though!

    Yep, I've only had 3 or 4 sessions of develloping film...
    First attempt was terrible...
    Second attempt was about 40% salvageable (but I really like the effects anyways! I pushed the up to 3 stops on some of them, develloping would have been much better if I had used fresh fixer each time instead of reusing it... Lesson learnt...)
    Pics here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2134917...03785806/show/
    Its supposed to be vied as a slideshow as the images are meant to be in order to document a trip to Adelaide in South Australia for a mountain bike competition...

    I've since devellopped another 2 batched which look much cleared when using fresh solution each time. I havent had them scanned as yet though.
