Home Processing

Since I've got a few weeks off between jobs right now and a lot of free time I started developing my own film again.

Results came out a bit grainer then I prefer but it looks like the final rise water might have been a bit colder then recommended. Also still trying to learn all the quirks of the Epson Perfection V370 Scanner. It has a very annoying bug in OSX where you have to move the mouse if it stops scanning but for $200 it's a nice negative scanner.

Processing notes:

Film: Fomapan 400

  • Developer: Ilford Ilfosol 3 at 1:9 for 8.5 minutes with a 10 second agitation every minute.

  • Fixer: Ilford Rapid Fixer at 1:4 for 10 minutes with a 10 second agitation every minute.
  • Rinse: Plain water with a drop of detergent for 5 minutes. I'll be trying distilled water next time.
  • All chemicals where allowed to sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before processing.
