    Shanghai GP3 funkiness...

    When I soaked this is water for a minute (120 roll) before developing... the water came out a bright blue... like high school crystal growing copper sulfate experiments blue...

    The film came out fine though...


    What gives?

    No sweat. Don't presoak. If you can find one single instance where a manufacturer of photographic film recommends pre-soaking, I'd be very interested to see it.

    Yeah, the colors can be pretty funky

    Maco advises presoaking for the Rollei R3 in their datasheet.

    Ever seen the 'juice' after pre soaking Tri-X 400/120?
    BTW, I think I remember reading about pre soaking in 'The Negative' by A.A., I will check it...
    I am pre soaking for about 35 years now and every time I did not, I had troubles, regardless the type of emulsion.

    What's the problem? It's just the anti-halation coating.

    The benefit of presoaking in a water bath is more even development, as the "pores" of the gelatin emulsion are "opened up" before going into the developer.
