    Shades of Ilford's recently-introduced "Simplicity Starter Pack" for B&W. But given the cost, I'm not sure how much sense this would make for developing sheet film.

    Sure, but they say they're testing the waters. If they sell well, I expect bigger kits would be coming.

    Re: Tetenal single roll kits

    Back when I was just starting LF and color development, I bought a couple of boxes of that "press" kit Tetenal made, that I think made up one liter of chemicals. Then, because I was doing it with b&w chemicals, I would dilute the C-41 developer 1:1 with hot water after tempering it to roughly 100 F and use 2 oz. in a BTZS tube to develop one sheet. So 1 oz. of actual chemicals, one-shot development of course. Somehow this worked perfectly and I made many good negatives this way, despite the...creative methodology! I assume these chemicals would mix up to either 16 or 32 ounces (35mm or 120 size tank) so perhaps even 4x5 processing of a box of film on the road is possible .

    Well, I may fly again. Just got my Real ID, because I let my passport lapse, only cost me $5 as a senior. No waiting line, and IL claims a fast visit. Took 30 minutes and the person was busy with me the whole time, typing, copying documents. Pictures. Scheesh!

    A Passport is faster and easier to get, as I recall.

    I'll get another passport soon.

    I actually do like flying, I only brace during takeoff and landing.

    But so crowded these days.

    A record # of passengers this Sunday...
