Developed my first bit of B&W sheet film last night and used BTZS tubes (TMAX 100 in D-76). Went OK, negs look roughly the right density, maybe a little thin. Using the BTZS raised a couple of questions:
<li>Do you use the "rotary processing tables"? I did use these and it seems OK, but since my shooting environment was not particularly controlled, my exposure could have been off. I used 6'30" @ 19 degrees
<li>Assuming you are doing all the film the same time, do you need to stage it? For example, I did two sheets. I put one in followed by the other a minute later. I obviously removed them a minute apart. My rational for this was when I was removing the film, I would need time to unscrew the tops an place them in the stop bath. Do I need to actually do this? Or could I grab all the tubes at one time, invert them all, and place them in the stop bath one at a time. This would drain the developer from the film while they wait to be placed in the stop bath, but obviously some small amount of developer would remain on the film. Is it enough to cause grief?
Thanks for all the help for a poor newbie so far!
