If you have ever thought about trying E-6 film in Caffenol, then I probably will be answering your question in the following thread.
Last night I got ambitious and loaded a roll of 36exp Ektachrome E100GX slide film into a borrowed Nikon N80. Threw on the 80-200 2.8 and an SB-600 and went to town taking pictures in my living room of my daughters toys. I did finally ch...
I shot my first roll of film, Kodak Ultra Max 400 Film (Blue/Yellow), on a Olympus Trip XB3. I then took that film and developed it using caffenol. All the shots are way too dark. If I shine a flashlight through the back I can just barely make out the details so I know I didn't royal fuck up the process. There might be too many unknown variables in this problem but I figur...
I've got a couple shots with residual marks on them. I am not sure if that's just water drying out that way or I didn't wash all of the fixer away. See the attachment. Concentric spots are visible in the center and to the right side of the photo.
If any one had this problem, please advice me how to eliminate it. Thank you in advance.
I am asking this question here because people developing in caffenol may have better intuition for my problem.
Here's a shot bellow. It has a brighter area at the bottom. Many other poorly exposed shots also have the same issue. I was thinking may be it's my camera leaking tiny bit of light? Or may be I didn't achieve complete darkness while developing (would...
I know I am opening the Pandora's box but I just got very nice result with the cursed Superpan 200.
I developed two roll first one shot in a Loreo 3D plastic was almost unreadable after development in Caffenol C-L, I think it has something to see with IR sensitivity making a bad mix with plastic with low IR opacity.
Anyway, it worked ...
SO, last weekend I ran some Tri-X 125 film through some Caffenol for the first time and was fairly successful. This weekend, I tried running some TMAX 100 film through the exact same developer recipe and it failed miserably. I could barely see any an image on the film, suggesting that it was VERY under developed. I used 11 minutes as opposed to the 12 minutes for the Tr...
I usually use Kentmere 100 with excellent results. I tried a roll of tri x because I have read it was great film Well it did not work very thin negatives very grainy . I used the same camera same light same operator same developing times fixer etc. not good at all so stick with what works is the saying the kentmere is available in 35mm and 120 and I great results with both...
I'm trying my hand at Caffenol; third try and first two went well. This third round ended up with an array of white spots/dots all over the images, some more than others. I just posted a couple examples:
The spots are black on the negative and are 'in' the image, not surficial (like dust) and can't be wiped off. There a...
yesterday, I tried caffenol first time.
and as a result, I got blank negative film.
there was no image, no number.. nothing on the film. totally blank nega..
so I tried again. and same result. blank.
tired again, and same. tried again, and same. BLANK!!!!
now, I have 4 blank negative fime...
what can I do? what is worng??
I really want to develo...
I've tried for the first time to develop a film in Caffenol with let's say a total fiasco. I've done a Caffenol-C using the commonly available recipes. Coffee+Ascorbic Acid+Soda. I am using ecn-2 type Kodak Vision2 500T film (it's the same C-41 process + getting rid of the black protective layer). I've tried 3 times to develop and only destroyed the film. I deve...
I've been testing the whole morning strips of film FP4.
I use the Caffenol recipe from the dev chart Caffenol and having a struggle to find the correct developing time.
I had no comments regarding my last post so here I am back with two questions.
-Ilford FP4 125, has anyone already developed this film with Caffenol C?
-Could you share your experience...
looking foreward to develop ILFORD FP4 125.
After 2 developments ruined two flims because of the NaC203 i used. Using crystals instead of powder i found out the quantity used was wrong, when using powder i had good results with developing HP5 plus 400 without the use of salt.
The recipe Ive got from the developing chart and was perfect. Last week i ...
I bought some premixed /packaged Caffenol to try it out, I haven't developed film in many years. I did have some issues getting the film on the reel, it's been so long!!
The first roll, new Tri-X, 120 size, was developed for 15 minutes as instructed but was way way overdeveloped and so dark the scanner wouldn't pick it up. I could see the images in the negative ...
