I also have to add that you're deep in the mud (or developer should I say )
My brother-in-law has also a Canon (350D). This friday he bought a Rolleiflex, on sunday we have been out trying it and developing the negs. When I took the negs out, he said the camera is definitely not going back to the seller (he has some time to try everything). And when we printed the first photo from this neg, he was totally caught. He said the 35mm film he was shooting ages ago was dead (sorry small format folks).
He is stuck so deep that today he went out and bought an enlarger and other darkroom stuff...
And I'm soooo happy that I have a similar soul around
