Not literally, I believe developer shouldn't be handled without gloves. But I am looking into starting a basic darkroom to get back into film. Play a bit with some B&W films that are available. Now I've had a bit of a read on the topic from a book so old it's about to fall apart but I doubt much has changed. I only want to develop negatives at this point, maybe some slides at a later time, and I will ultimately scan them using the filmstrip scanner I have. So far as I know here are the basics that I need: - A Timer - A Thermostat - An insulated dish to control temperature of the chemicals - A developing tank - One of those little things to get the end out of the film so the roll can be unwound. - Developer - Stop bath (I heard water can be used for this) - Fixer Have I left anything out? I know that the list could be refined to specific brands, but I'm trying to get the overall view of things set first.
