    ....ok so not strictly photography, but has anyone got any experience of developing 8mm film? I've found one website with details, but always like a bit of back-up :)

    (I haven't got any to develop... yet... but it's a definite plan)

    What process? I have a few still cameras that use 16mm film. I shoot BW 16mm movie film, and process it as normal. I had to get a few 16mm reels off Ebay, but other than that it was the normal BW process. Of course, I was only developing a few feet at a time. I don't know how you handle it if you are trying to develop 100' rolls. Dip and dunk?

    any process! :) It really depends what film I can get my hands on. So BW is just same as photo BW? (this is how little I know) I haven't seen much BW 8mm on ebay but i have been keeping an eye out.

    This is the site i mentioned in my first post which goes into detail on how to process your own 8mm

    Wait! I just realized that I'm developing for negs! If you want to project it you'll want a positive developing process.

    yup

    What chemicals do you use for BW positive film? I'm guessing they'd be the ones to use??? (mind you, I don't think i've really seen that many/any bw slides...)

    hmm, anyone got experience with SCANNING 8mm film? That is something my father is rather keen on.

    [edit:] sorry, did not mean to hijack ;)
