    Sure...but sinks aren't usually called that here. It's amusing because it's a word that often is associated with where one 'slops the hogs' for instance and gets analogized as the site where rapacious politicians go for financial sustenance. I love the international aspect of the internet with its instant capacity to share culture.

    Am I starting at the wrong end of the stick? How long will chemicals, papers, etc... be around to make it all worth while?

    Giggle, John, troughs are usually on in laundrys (or outback dunny's and washrooms) here and sinks in kitchens and bathrooms. Culture is great.
    I have quite a few cultural stories to tell from my tourguiding days way back...

    Good MORNING, Nicole,

    Not only do we have somewhat opposite times, but, unfortunately, we here in Illinois are just beginning that long, dreary slide into winter. It's mid-50's, cloudy, drizzly, and gray here; I'm sure Perth is much nicer right now. In fact, I think I'll go over to weatheronline.co.uk to check!

    To answer your question: Processing times vary depending on the film, the developer, and the temperature. Times in the five to ten minute range are fairly typical.

    Oooh - you're in for some fun!

    It's cheaper, faster, and as everyone has pointed out, gives you the control.

    There are several online sources of info, but I also like analog reading - a book or two might be a good idea.

    I had a copy of Mastering Black-And-White Photography by Bernhard Suess, which I found helpful. I'm sure there are several others just as good if not better.

    Nicole,

    The very best thing for you to do is visit with someone else that has a darkroom. That way you can see all the items and figure out how things should be layed out etc. Most would be glad to give a guided tour -- take notes and measurements.

    Then go to eBay and use the search word 'darkroom.'
    Imitation cameras come with big egos, real cameras do not include accessories.

    Konical - it's spring here and beautiful weather as usual. Actually, we don't get enough rain here on the west coast and Australia seems to be drying up pretty fast. Summer can get pretty hot, but gee we're lucky to live in such a beautiful country!

    Thanks Max. I prefer analog reading took, doesn't cook my eyes as much!

    I'll check it out.

    Time well spent

    on average, I'd say it takes me about 40 minutes to develop my film from the time I pop open the 35mm canister to when I hang the negs to dry. There's a little extra lead time on that getting the chemicals to the right temperature, but you can be doing other things while that happens.
