can someone please tell me what the dilution for d-76 and kodak professional fixer should be for like ilford hp5 and pan f.

 

For Hp5, I diluted D76 1:1 and left the fixer stock. 13 minutes in D76 and 5ish in the fixer.

Thanks. Also, can you tell me exactly how to measure out the powder n' stuff? I cant find a clear answer anywhere, and I dont want to fuck it up.

I managed to delete a page long post I made as a response to this. Sorry. To sum it up, get two of those 1 gallon distilled water jugs at walmart and use those. Follow the directions on the back of the package for developer and fixer. LABEL THE JUGS RIGHT AFTER YOU MIXED THEM. Seriously, that's so important.

 

And dont just shake the hell out of the jugs to mix the chemicals in. Its not good. Instead, stir and do gentle inversions.

It is pretty weird to find out that someone randomly is using your drawing as his avatar.

 

Well it is a compliment, but please ask me.

i would also like to know if it's not good to use faucet water. and i always shake my bottles of developer, so thank you for that notice.

i use faucet water every time. i don't think it really makes a difference. plus you'd look like a snob trying to use bottled water to dev your film.

It all depends on where you live whether or not you want to use tap water. Where I live, it's so high in copper that it would cause a noticeable difference.

 

As for the shaking of the developer, I did it until my Dad asked me what the hell I thought I was doing. He said something about problems due to the bubbles when it's shaken. 50% chance that it's just bullshit, but inversions work just as well.

 

I hate the reels I'm using right now. I just had to reel this roll 8 fucking times and it's still wrong. I can tell because it has those nasty ridges. I'm pissed.

QUICK.

 

Someone let me know when my emulsions aren't soft anymore. Aka, how long should I let this dry. I want to scan tonight, I won't be here for 2 days. And it's the first roll from the hassy.

Do you guys think reeling 35mm or 120 is harder?

 

I can't get my 120 straight on the clip for anything.

I think 120 is harder, just because of the size, It can be a lil tricky to get both sides of the film in, i found. but not extreamly hard or anything just got to play round with it.

I must just really suck at reeling film then. Because I can spend 15 minutes just trying to figure the shit out, before saying fuck it and going with whatever I can come up with. By the end I have creases everywhere and shit like that.

 

EDIT: Just loaded a roll perfectly. All I needed to do was just chill and think about what I was doing. Haha.

the purple cast is something on a films that doesn't wash away, except when you first fill your tank with same temperature water as your developer.

Shake the tank with water around a couple of times.

The beige blobs are from two pieces of film sticking together in the reel, those are undevelopped spots. So make sure you're spooling the film good onto the reel.
