I am returning to film after many years of illness and wanting to get back to b/w again, but being on State Pension I have been unable to afford a 35mm developing tank. I have been given a Praktica MTL3 and have loaded it with film, but am now faced with an impasse. I cannot develop my film. At my age you get to know when you have come up against a brick wall and not wanting to suffer more years of frustration got to thinking back a few years. I seem to remember some friends at the Public Darkroom Facility which I attended, developing their film in the actual cassette the film is sold in. So, seeing as a developing tank is out of the question, how would I set about developing my film in the cassette? There has to be a technique to it or it would turn into a joke in no time. I am thinking that there would have to be a way of rotating the spool so that the chemicals flow around the film, but how would I ensure that they flowed evenly? If there were tight spots, then there would be bare patches of undeveloped emulsion, yes? What kind of container would I have to use to hold the cassette and the chemicals? Mind boggling, to say the least. Maybe someone out there has used this technique and can give me the info that would make it possible for me to develop my film. I hope so. Many thanks. Grandad.
