    Well done, looking forward to seeing some of your handy work. When you have developed some more experience with B&W then it's not such a big step to C41. Before I was lucky enough to find a really cheap Jobo CPE, I used this The heating element is from an oid kettle and the temperature is...

    Rondinax are good but you can’t stand develop in them as they are designed to run the film through a bath of developer. To stand develop you just need a normal tank and however many reels it will hold, I would suggest the ones by AP if you can get them as they have big tabs and are easy to load...

    Film What FILM (!) photography related item did you buy this week?

    You should give developing a go it's really easy and a lot quicker than sending it way to have it developed. It can be done in your kitchen or bathroom and if you chose the right developer you can even do your C41 XP2! I mostly 'stand develop' as it's easy and versatile and allows you to...

    Thanks for the kind comment. Not sure if it is still available in other countries but it's no longer listed on the Fujifilm UK website although it may still be available in stores until they have used up their stock. As far as I know all Fuji Rangefinder 645 cameras shoot in portrait mode as...

    After a couple of years finally got my GS645S repaired.

    Film How to unfreeze film?

    I usually leave mine to defrost at room temperature for about 24 hours. As a general rule I never take 120 film out of the foil packet until I'm ready to use it, whether its been frozen or not. On the odd occasion that I have taken it out of the packet, I wrap it in kitchen foil just to be on...

    Film Fuji GA645Zi

    Unfortunately mine has also now failed, luckily I make a note of film types, ISO etc so I know it's set on 320. I should be able to workout how many turns of the dial I need to change it for other speeds as it goes a third of a stop at a time. I did a quick check in the UK, and couldn't find...

    Thanks for your kind comment. I like Agfa Vista and it's saturated colours, didn't realise it was Fuji C200 until around 12 mounts ago but it's main advantage over the Fuji version was that In the UK it could be had for £1 for 24 exposures, at one of the chains of 'thrift' stores. Couldn't...

    Have you taken a look on e-bay there are always plenty on there and you may pick up a bargain.

    Film What FILM (!) photography related item did you buy this week?

    These are very good, but do have a couple of disadvantages. As you can see from the video they do require continuous turning of the film reel, and I've seen versions modified by people with clockwork or electric motors. Also they only take one 35mm film at a time so if you have more than one...

    Film Showcase Foma Retropan 320

    Time for a new thread. I have only tried this film once, although I have a few rolls. I was advised to expose at 250 ISO rather than the box speed as it is supposed to over expose at 320 ISO. I'll have to give it a go at box though, just to see how it turns out. Grainy and soft and the first...

    Jim Interesting question, and I answer this as a user not an expert. I think Pan F is recognised as being a fine grain film in comparison to others due to its lower ISO, and I have always shot it at box speed so I can't comment on what it is like if pushed or pulled. Also as with most things...
