    Developing 116 film

    My father has a roll of old Verichrome Pan 116 film. We're trying to find a way to develop it without spending a huge amount of money to have a place like Rocky Mountain do it for us. I know that I can develop it in D-76, but the obvious problem is finding a 116-compatible reel. The reels that I have are adjustable for 135, 126, 127, and 120/220 film. Can I use one of them, or would something for 70mm work instead?

    70 mm reels would probably work, as long as they fit into the tank.

    Or, you could do what I did with every 116 film I ever developed. In absolute darkness, hold each end of the film in your hands and see-saw through chemistry in trays.

    HC110 dil B gives nice short developing times.

    Do as Matt suggests see-saw the film in a tray of developer ir's very easy. It's how I processed my first rolls of 120 while at school.

    ..we can process 116 and only charge a little extra to do it.

    Or, you can find one of the old black Ansco tanks with an adjustable reel that will take 116. I have 2, and the last one I picked up in mint condition for $5.
