i am new to caffenol developing and having a lot of fun feeling out the processes through which i can make great negatives. i shoot with C-41, and i've found that the hot temperatures that work best with this medium mean it's quite sensitive to time and results can vary widely.
in order to nail down consistency, i was wondering if anyone foresees trouble pre-...
It is recommended to use Caffenol only fresh and one time. But I always used 500ml of it for 2, 3 films, and i often stored used Caffenol for one or two days.
I never made systematical tests, but I never have recognized any difference quality wise.
Last week I stored used Caffenol again, but hadn't time for developing the next days after. After 7 days i get curious. I ...
Hi / Help
Newby to Caffenol. First few films came out fine. Kent' 400 in Delta for 9 mins. But my last couple of efforts have come out all but clear !!
As I live in the UK I am having to bake my own Soda. Is this the problem?
I used the same stuff for the last films as I did the 1st. same coffee, vit C etc.
Hi I just tried CCL on some Tmax400 shot at 1600. I followed the recipe - scaled down from 1L to 280ml of liquid and waited 60mins at 20'C - but the negatives were invisible. I could just about make out a brown stain for the first few frames (normally pitch black section!).
Any clues as to what went wrong? Was it too concentrated - I put in proportional ingredients into...
I was wondering if anyone has had any success with developing film in a Caffenol recipe using real brewed coffee rather than instant coffee? I am interested in trying this for a project, but considering my attempt at the original Caffenol recipe failed, it would be helpful to have a starting point than go into it completely blind!
Any insight would be helpf...
I've been reading around the fora and am still not quite sure.
It's obviously very possible to develop slide film with mixed results but what do you end up with?
A b/w negative or a b/w _positive_ image?
I did a search before I posted this but sorry if its been discussed. Google wasn't much help either.
I have a roll of 35mm Tmax 3200 I shot at 1250 ASA. I would like to develop it in my trusty Caffenol C-M (rs) soup from the cool book. I have been getting good results for scanning from this mix for 12 minutes with TMax 400 120. Can someone give me guesstimated d...
Hi, I've rcently learned about caffenol and I'm set to try it out. I wanted to know if there is a particular recipe for Kentmere 400 Black and White Film, ISO 400? This is the film I use most often, and have the most access to. Please help
Just processed my first batch of Acros 100 in Caffenol C-M-L. Many many thanks to the m.caffenol-cookbook.com/ and from the information I got from this group .
I was not able to find Potassium Bromide for a restrainer, but I did find Sodium Bromide in a pool supply store. After doing some research, I discovered that Sodium Bromide would work as well if not better than...
After shooting a roll of Acros 100 yesterday I can honestly say I have never seen a better film/developer combination. Little to no grain and super sharp with a incredible range of tones !!! Used Caffenol CM-RS for 15 mins at 68F, and a ISO of 200 on the Acros
I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience developing Maco Eagle AQS Surveillance Film in Caffenol. I have just bought 33 m of the stuff off e-bay and the results are extremely dissappointing.
I shot at box speed (ISO 400) and used Caffenol-C-L @20degC semi-stand (10 initial gentle inversions with 1 gentle midpoint inversion) for 75 min. I have used th...
I'm new to Caffenol, but loving the experimentation. Its bringing out the chemist in me again. It's making photography fun again ratther than a means to take pictures.
I'm using the recipes in the Caffenol Cookbook and so far have processed a few rolls of HP5. One failed when I tried Caffenol CL, but CM seems to work OK. I've posted a couple of shots and...
After playing with some 35mm Caffenol development, Now I want to try 120 film. I was wondering if I can use same developing time for 120 film as long as I use same brand films?
What I mean is that I have an app automatically calculate developing time based on brand and type of film ( ex: enter Kodak Tmax + water tempreture then the app will give me approx dev t...
Picture was taken on Harman direct positive FB paper . After experimenting with Adox Adolux R09 1:100 as developer with not much success I decided to use caffenol as developer.
Paper was measure on iso 3. Shoot in available light ( north side window ), F 5.6 ,8 sec exposure time.
Its hard to...
