    Well, my plans of starting developing my own B&W being up in the air anyway (currently, I expect all my stuff besides the cameras and the PC to be in boxes for about a month), I might as well go full-color :smile: 25 rolls of expired drugstore-brand (cheap!!) film is on the way!
    I'm documenting our work on the new appartment with the FE and the 28. With all our 70s furniture, I'm hoping to get a real retro look to the series. At least untill the stereo, tv and pc come out of the boxes :) . So I'm really hoping for color casts and fogging and stuff...in fact I hope the film is seriously screwed up :biggrin:

    Anyway, wanted to share the anticipation. Pictures will follow when I've unpacked the scanner :tongue:

    PS. it's all a lot of fun, except for my audio stuff being boxed up... turntables and sanding machines sadly don't mix :Curved:

    Thanks for the update, I wish you the best of luck with the work that you're doing to your new apartment.

    I have been thinking of doing some basic B/W developing myself, do you find it difficult?

    I look forward to those retro pictures!

    Take the cassettes out of the plastic canisters and leave them outside for a week, then bring them in and put them in the freezer overnight, and finally thaw them by steaming them in ammonia.

    That should do it. :Unsure::BigGrin::Crunk:

    ps, and then shoot them in a Holga!

    Thanks! As for developing, I have a virtual basket with the stuff I need waiting in a virtual store...and that's as far as I got at this point. Ah well..all in good time :)
