Digital film processing involves frequency conversions between frames (the audio timing component). The software may have picked up the time synchronization of the image file and performed some "spooky" logic to generate some of the imagery and gotten confused in the process. But it's been awhile since I performed ASCII image file processing in binary. "...

One thing to recall with B&W films: for a given film speed and type (i.e. cubic grain or tabular grain), the development time will be about the same across most if not all manufacturers. That is, Ilford FP4+ and Fomapan 100 have a development time within half a minute of each other in most, if not all, developers (and half a minute out of six or seven ...

Without empty cores, you're pretty much done before you start. The only real option I see is to take the bulk loader into the darkroom and hand roll a quantity of film that will fit into the loader's supply chamber and thread it in. It'll still work in the loader (I think), though you may find the remjet gets scratched up as it rides on the film's back ...

There's one "color" process that might have produced an image like the one shown (though it appears the negative was "distressed" in some manner as well): that's developing with any of the three developers, C-41, E-6 First Developer, or E-6 Color Developer, then stopping and fixing with non-bleaching fixer (like conventional B&W fixer or C-41 fixer, not ...

The first thing you need to do is eliminate the possibility that it is the camera. Research and test your camera's shutter and light meter to see it is functioning properly and you are using it properly, Take a test roll and have a lab develop it. If the camera is fine AND you have exposed the film properly ( a big if ) then you know it is in the ...

If you can read the edge markings on the film, your development worked, at least to some extent (half time with Caffenol may be a bit short -- C-41 film in Caffenol will generally come out pretty dense because the orange mask adds to the fog/stain from the coffee). Given this, if your frames are completely clear, your camera's shutter may not have fired, or ...

The point behind shooting a film at box speed and developing with recommended dilutions, agitations, and time is consistency. If your film is properly exposed, then doing everything by the box will yield usable images. Anytime you deviate from the recommended process, you are experimenting. As with all experiments, you should change a single variable at a ...
