    Developing Kodachrome KR125?

    Hi all, I decided to post the question here since it has to do with a collector’s camera. I have acquired a stereo camera, Revere 33 who belonged to Ira and Lee (wife) Gershwin. I checked it and before opening it I realized there’s a roll of film inside. I rewound it successfully and it’s a...

    Developing Overexposed Film

    There may be an answer to this question somewhere else but I am a little confused. If I shoot Portra 400 35mm at 200 ISO instead of box speed, do I need to let the lab know to develop it differently? If so, what is the difference and why can’t the over exposure be achieved by developing the film...

    What am I doing wrong with my film??

    Hi, just recently bought a film camera and I have been experimenting around. I was just wondering what I am doing wrong which leads to sections of my developed and scanned film having black patches. Attached are a few examples, some are more extreme than the other as you can see. Also I don't...

    wondering if anyone else has used this combo yet and if they have any tips. developed my first roll today and it seemed ok, (could see images on the negatives) but once I scanned and attempted to invert the images the photos were mainly blue and white.

    CineStill C-41 Kit brain fart

    okay y'all. I just received my newest batch of developing chemicals in the mail. I was so excited that I immediately went to mix- and forgot to heat my mixing water to 120° for the developer. Is there any way I can save it?? Total bone-head move for me. Don't worry, I'm pissed at myself too. :angry:

    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I recently have been trying to develop my own b&w film. However, I’m having issues.

    Back from a VERY LONG hiatus.. New (old ) Mamiya 645.

    OK so after a VERY LONG hiatus, I am back for a bit. Shooting a newly acquired mamiya 645 (pre 1000). Curious to how many 645 shooters in film there still are and what film are you getting. Its a tough road now to find it and not break the bank.

    Little Riddle For Ya...

    Hello everyone, my first post here. I have been developing 35 mm film for a while. Recently, I had a fixer go bad (foggy negative) so I mixed a new batch from the same concentrate. Today, I also mixed a new batch of dev powder (Xtol, standard concentration) and developed an Ilford HP5+ 400. No...

    Transparent smelly film after developing

    Hi all, I recently had two rolls of Kodak 400 color film developed at a store. I dropped the film off at the store and had them mailed to me. One of them had gone through X-rays multiple times before being developed but came out fine. However, the other came out blank/transparent with not...

    Have you seen these chemical stains?

    Hi all! I got some film of mine developed at a lab and I've been seeing these weird shadow-y marks around the sprockets. the lab uses Fuji chemistry and I shoot both Kodak and Fuji, weirdly enough I only see it on Kodak film. Let me know if you have any ideas of what it could be!

    Hey guys. I used to be fairly active on this forum. It's been a couple years and I've since pretty much stopped doing anything with film.

    HP5+ Developed in Ilfosol 3 has white edges that look like light leaks?

    Today I tried to develop a roll of film in Ilfosol 3. I've developed film before with D-76 but this is my first time using Ilfosol 3. My steps were as follows: Gentle agitation for first 30 seconds, then every 15 seconds at the end of each minute. I shot HP5 at iso400 and followed the times...
