    To start developing your own film (and I am assuming B&W, though this works for color, too) you will need a developing tank and reels. I would get the two reel tank (16 ounce) to start. A good thermometer that is accurate in the 60-80 degree Fahrenheit range, but up to 120 for color. A digital kitchen timer, a pair of scissors and a can opener. Some string or wire and a few clothespins. So:

    Tank, 16 ounce
    2x reels (these are mid priced, if you can get the more expensive then great, but don't get the cheapest.)
    Can Opener
    Scissors (Walmart)
    Thermometer (Walmart)
    Timer (Walmart)
    String or wire and clothespins to hang film to dry (Walmart)
    A very dark place to handle the film while you load onto the reels, or a changing bag.

    it wouldn't hurt to have a couple of measuring cups for your chemicals.
