Reels for developing

We do not live by milsurps alone. Photography and other hobbies as well as the mention of other collections would fit in this forum.

No problem Robert, I am only going to use it like a black bag to load the film into the tank. Chemicals will be administered in a large, well ventilated area.

Also, I am going to try Stand Developing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJ4tZiOJiJA which seems to me to be rather foolproof............. :roll: :roll:

Of course.... there is no need to fear loading film in a small unvented room with no chemicals added to the container. It's just that anytime anyone mentions small bathrooms and processing film I get this personal experience flashback. :loco:

I watched that video. No agitation after the first few minutes and then leaving to set for a hour to slow develop in a weak solution seems pretty chancy as to results...even though he is showing four stops of under and over camera exposure that all seem to come out, more or less useable. I'll be curious to see how it all works out for you.

I checked that process on a couple of videos on YouTube and they all seem to come up with a good result :cool: :cool:
