Are you new to the wonderful world of analog photography and would you like to start developing your own black-and-white films? Or are you an experienced analog photographer nostalgic for the era of analog photography and would you like to pick up the thread? Then this starter kit for black-and-white film development is definitely for you!
This starter kit contains all you need to develop your own black-and-white films (35mm or 120). Get started with the universal and indestructible Paterson developing tank (with two universal film reels) and develop two 35mm films at the same time or one 120 roll film. Winding the film on the film reel is done in complete darkness. Once the film is wound up you put it in the developing tank and close it with the light-tight lid. Then you develop your film in normal daylight with the included film developer, stop bath and fixer bath. Measure the photochemistry exactly with the Paterson measuring cylinder of 600ml. The temperature of the chemistry is monitored with the included 23cm thermometer, specifically made for film development.
After you have successfully developed your film you hang it up with the supplied film clips to dry.
In short, this kit is good for a lot of development fun! With the included Ilford chemistry you can, depending on the dilution used, develop about 20-30 35mm films or 10-15 120 roll films. The photochemistry is liquid and therefore easy to dilute. The Ilfosol 3 film developer is suitable for most black and white films and delivers negatives with a pleasant contrast and fine grain. Once used, you can of course re-use the kit with new, fresh chemistryBelow you will find the contents of this starter kit.
