For everyone who's helped me so far, thanks. For those about to rock, I salute you... I finally got developing gear for Christmas, and I developed my film for the first time tonight. I ran two reels of T-Max 100, one 120 and one 135-36(one at a time). I used HC-100 (B), Kodak Stop, and Heico NH-5 Rapid Fixer. At first, I pre-soaked the rolls with water to soften them up and remove some of the red dye (as told by the guy at the camera store). It was 68/69 degrees in the room, I developed for 6 minutes as directed. I did 15 seconds of stop bath, 3 minutes of rapid fixer, 5 minutes of final wash, and a quick 3 drops at the end of wetting agent. I'm pretty happy with my timing, everything looks properly exposed. I'm just concerned with some small details: 1. Both rolls have a slight red tint to them. More final rinsing? 2. For the 135-36 roll, there is lack of development at the top of the film strip, only at the interior of the spool. In other words, the interior 10 frames aren't developed at the top of the film strip. I used 400mL even though the canister recommended 375mL. Any ideas?
