I have just tried caffenol developing and over developed two rolls of film,
I checked the coffee (instant) and see that it has strength 3. Could that be an issue?
this is the way i worked.
following the film developing chart ( www.caffenol.org/film-development-chart/ ) supposing i have developed film before;
Instant coffee with caffein
Hello, I was thinking of starting caffenol, and had a question. Since instant coffee is the main ingredient, will negatives be sepia-toned if they are scanned as color film? Could a few examples be provided if possible?
I have successfully developed a technique
of using Caffenol-C with this mix . . .
25 g's of Sodium Carbonate
7 g's od Ascorbic Acid
20 g's of Coffee.
I have a number of rolls of colour film in 35mm
format that I would develop in Caffenol-C
is there any adjustments I need to make
or can I work with the above?
The image below is from a Arista.EDU ISO 400 120 negative developed in Caffenol CM(rs) for 14.5 minutes at 68 degrees. I have also had this problem on Arista.EDU 200 120 film. I use the formula from the Caffenol Cookbook and included KBr. I have developed several rolls of Arista.EDU ISO 100 successfully using the same formula less the KBR. Seems to me the first time it...
I tried using caffenol-c for paper negatives, and the contrast was very low.
So much so, that I switched to Dektol for the paper negs.
The contrast with paper negs is very high, and Dektol just made it much worse. i decided to try diluting Dektol with Caffenol-C, and I think it works pretty good, softens the contrast but still enough contrast to get a good sharp image.
Hallo. Life isn,t simple.I just can,t understand from where is coming this huge stain. Two last roll of ilford fp4+ coming out with huge, black stain. Interesting that two roll before these, negatives coming out just perfecto. I try to understand where is the mistake. A month ago I replace iodized salt with Kbr. And result was ok. Prewash 5 minute. Recipe is caffenol cl....
OK, I'm giving up. Well not completely: I still see myself soaking some low to mid-ISO films in Caffenol, but for high ISO (400 upwards), I'm just not happy with the grain right now.
I started out with Caffenol-CL (Reinholds recipe), then went to thinner versions, especially reducing Vitamin C, because I read somewhere that this is supposed to be accentuating the grain....
I have been watching and researching the caffinol process for a little while and wanted finally to give it a shot. I had some very old 616 verichrome pan that was left in a Brownie folding camera I t was fully exposed but I was uncertain as to how it was kept. So instead of sending off I gave it a shot tough call for the first time with developing and caffinol as ...
My latest batch of photos were quite nice but definitely underdeveloped - as all my films have been. Thankfully modern scanning and software goes a long way to salvaging things, but I've run out of my first jar of coffee and am considering what to try next.
I'm presuming that it's fairly well known that coffee is far from the only plant material containing caffeic acid...
I have recently developed a 35mm roll Fomapan Classic 100 in Caffenol Delta(STD), fixed in Foma FIx P. The results are quite good, but the negative seems to look high in contrast and thin, especially in the shadows area. Settings as follows:
developing time - 26 minutes in Caffenol at 19˚C
fixing time - 10 minutes in Foma FIx P at 19˚C
film shot as 100asa.
I was ...
I just posted a few photos I shot on FP4+ and developed in Caffenol C with Borax (actually Metaborate made from Borax) as the alkali. I deliberately made no post-scanning alterations (apart from removing a few specks of crud) to provide some idea of what they REALLY look like.
They aren't perfect, and definit...
I'm just wondering if people here have pinpointed a good range where the ph of a caffenol should be within to be effective as a developer.
I got a few strips of fix tester paper but I've never really used them so I thought this might be a better use :)
maybe changeing the ph with different amounts of the ingredients can give different results?
-I've been out of the...
I'm a new here. I really interested in caffeol develop.
so I'm getting all of stuffs for it.
but, I wonder what type of Vitamin do I need?
3000mg? or 1000mg?
I have Kodak 400 Try X.
It doesn't matter whatever?
please answer me.... T-T
I have two rolls of (35mm) Delta 100 Professional, and I was wondering if their is any special treatment with slower speed films in caffenol C. My first caffenol tests were with fujicolor 200 and 400 last year (nightmare), and I'm ready to give it another shot with proper Black and whites. I have hp5 plus and tri-x rolls but those two are already covered ...
Hi all, firstly LOVE this community and you guys have been very helpful.
I tried to process a roll of fresh, fujicolor superia x-tra400 film (shot on a Pentax K1000). It's a color film, I think is it a "C-41" film, size: 135, iso: 400.
-developed in a AP Micro developing tank, with 2 reels (I used the bottom reel)
Developer Recipe: Photojojo's
-5 tsp of coffee
I named this process as Caffenolcolor or simply caffcol. I am developing color with a coffee-based developer. Is it an (im)possible project?
Interested can visit my blog where I try to gain adepts. caffenolcolor.blogspot.com .
Just a little smell
i have developed film on caffenol for the first time the fixer was agifix rapid and film was kodak 400 tri x for professional some films please see the photo and provide your feedback please let me know why some photo are so grainy and some look overexposed please let me know the reason.
