But in just those same few years, film and chemistry in general has slowed to a trickle. It's really getting tight out there. And I still have 25 more years to live. Wonder which will kick the bucket first--me or film.
No one claimed yellow borders and dingy tones just from blix - combined bleach-fix. Two of us got such results specifically from the Tetanal RA4AT kit that uses single part concentrates. That was the problem - one big bottle of hard to mix concentrate apparently makes a bad blix, or a bad developer, or maybe both. Regular kits that mix the blix from separate components work fine.
