    Film Using Stand Development for Unconventional Developing

    I employed a technique I've used a couple of times in the past on an unidentified exposed roll of Superia 400 - I threw it in with Rodinal 1:100 for an hour. I didn't want to take this to a shop to be developed since I didn't know for sure that there would be anything on it. I couldn't identify...

    B&W First film in 20+

    First outing with film in 20+ years. The camera is an Asahi Pentax "AP," which you can read about elsewhere. I bought it to get the lens that was attached. The lens appears to have some issues, but the camera doesn't. Image was only corrected for exposure and contrast. Ilford HP5 Plus...

    I have an extensive (to me) film camera collection (about 35+ film cameras or so) that I would like to start using for fun in my free time. I do have some old rolls of film. I wasn't sure, are you able to use film after the "expiration" date? If so will there be anything wrong with the prints...

    Film Spotmatic, too good, too common to be interesting?

    The Pentax Spotmatic is a camera that is easy to find as many were made over a long time, is more reliable than other cameras from the 60s/70s, and can often be found for pocket-change. If you find an old one chances are it's shutter will work great, even the one-second speed, even though it has...
