hmm, so according to Darkshape this process is the photographic equivalent of anal sex.

Where's my FP4?

Devved my first one today. Boy are the negs thick!



Ok manual exposure by guesstimation, on an old Contax 11.

My little scanner doesnt know what to do, I have made a photographic one much better using my NEX and E Rokkor lens. Its better. But not much with negs this thick!

I did C-41 in BW quite a few times. Never got results I would consider even acceptable. I posted the results here, but I don't encourage anyone to go look at them, I find them embarrassing now. Sad

The local pharmacist handed me a bagful of expired colour 35mm films a while back. They're still in the fridge and probably not worth spending money on colour chemistry, so they'd be perfect for this or caffenol.
I've seen some decent results here and there and if it gets something useful out of free film, what's not to like?

+1 I tried only once and would never repeat it.
