Fogging can be accomplished with a chemical agent instead of re-exposure to light. Of course that means buying one more chemical.

Re: diy processing in a garden hose?

The hose on a drum will work only if it is filled fully. If the hose is partially filled and plugged the liquid will not travel because the locked air will prevent it. Unless it reall a small quantity like 1-5ml. Or when both ends are attached together. Even if the hose is full the chemistry has to...

Re: diy processing in a garden hose?

Disadvantages, however are: quantities when compared to LOMO or JOBO tanks. a 9mm 15meter hose takes 1 litre a 18mm 10meter hose takes 2.5 litre The quantities of chemistry have nothing to do with the volume of the apparatus. It all depends on the capacity of the chemistry. Capacity is the area of ...

Re: diy processing in a garden hose?

so what is the cheapest reversal kit / film combination? E6 chemistry seems fairly easy to get. and kodak 64t is everywhere. if you can process 6 films from a liter then thats still cheaper than lab development. Freestyle sells a quart E-6 kit for $33. A quart is about a liter. Their catalog doesn'...

Re: diy processing in a garden hose?

Well, never did use the hose technique. Sounds smart and fun but a simple calculation on how much liquid you would need will soon stop the enterprise. You do not fill the hose completely. In fact, you don't need much chemical at all if you rotate the hose on a drum. The fluid will work its way thro...

Re: diy processing in a garden hose?

A friend and I were going to try something like this back when I was in grad school, only we were not going to use hose but PVC pipe. We figured we'd need a pipe 60' long just in case the film was longer than 50'. We had discussions on whether we should roll the pipe back and forth across the floor ...

Re: Canon DS8 exposure problem. Help!

Make life simple. Get a light meter and test against it. Wrong! See the thread I started "Internal vs. external light meters." I've worked out two methods for calibrating light meters. Unfortunately, both involve processing the film. If you're in a hurry, as Ugo apparently is, there's no time. I ma...

The Canon DS8 # gives the same exposure of the Leicina. The Canon DS8 #2 gives two stops more than the other.
Seems to me you've answered your own question.

Re: Question for the darkroom guys. Re: Remjet

Thanks everyone for all the information. I've found a site with the procedure for processing Fomapan R, but it appears to apply to their 35mm slide film. Not being movie film it presumably does not have the rem-jet. To use the same procedure for movie film you would need an extra step to remove the ...

Re: Question for the darkroom guys. Re: Remjet

So what is the purpose of each? I know the anti-halation layer prevents halos around objects in the image by inhibiting reflection from the support, but what is the purpose of remjet, and why is it only found on movie film (or is it)?

What is the difference between remjet and anti-halation layer? Or are they the same thing?

Re: Digital sound for film?

Second, and more professional, use the tape track of the film to play a timecode and match this timecode with the soundtrack in the computer. This would have the advantage of certainly finding the right position, even if something's gone wrong while playing (frame counts missing or whatever). I bel...

Film in a landfill

I know a guy who works in a landfill. Recently someone threw away several reels of 35mm movie film. The rules at his work site prohibit employees from taking anything home but he managed to sneak out about 3 feet of it. We cleaned it up as best we could and examined it with a loupe. It looks like th...

Re: Foma kits?

Freestyle in Los Angeles seems to have the developer, Fomadon LQR. At least it's in their catalog. Possibly that's the critical part of the chemistry and you could use some other bleach and fixer.
