    Re: Film Developing Rant and CineStill DF96 Monobath - Am I Lazy?

    When I bought a new Nikon N70 with power advance and AUTO focus and exposure and flash

    Wow, what an upgrade 'sorta' from Pentax H1

    I wandered crowds, shooting one handed over my head

    I was happy with 1 keeper out 38 exposures

    Still got the NIKON, now they sell for $5 with a lens

    I burned through rolls, had Slide film processed at HELIX, B&W I did myself

    Now I can't do that even with Digi, I hand load 12 film exposures and that takes forever...to use up

    Time is not on our side

    The last project was a long one and fully deserving of the multiple rolls of film I gave it.
    Yes, there were plenty of duds, but there's no digital mindset at play.

    Oh boy, the drudgery of darkroom work...I agree...reminds me of when I spent hours and hours doing old-fashioned brush paint work. Until I found something easier...now I can complete a painting in a day!

    I think you can modulate your analog/digital load depending on the amount of work you want.

    If you’re going to shoot 45 rolls for a project, maybe go digital for that one. If another one is likely only a handful then let that one be film.

    You have both tools, find your balance.

    Also don’t consider sending film to a lab as a waste of money or just something you don’t want to outsource just because you can do it yourself. You want your time for something else, you can “buy it back”.

    Good question, and the impetus for this thread.
    I'm waiting for some to arrive. Shoulda been today, but delays, delays, delays.
    I might try it with 8x10 first!

    I have some Cine e-6 Dynamic. Grabbed a used 500C two weeks ago and the deal included a bunch of non expired E-100. Hopefully, I process today.

    One caveat, I have never processed E-6. Any results may not be accurate.


    Have a great day everyone.

    Currently sitting on about 100 sheets of undeveloped film, I can relate.

    same here Ari, not biggest fan of processing film but has to be done. also prefer to save $$ if I can, vs sending everything out to a lab, and Toronto Image Works has stopped processing film so there's that too.
    notch codes ? I only use one film...
