The Tetenal C41 developing kit arrived a few days ago. I can develop about 10 films with it.
Reading the instructions learned me the final product does not last very long, just a week or so.
I decided to wait and shoot a sufficient quantity of colour film and I’ll be using expired colour film for 90% of the batch of 10. Just in case something goes wrong.
I’m quite sure it will go fine though. How hard can it be to maintain a constant temperature for a few minutes? The second-hand Jobo CPE 2 I bought will do a fine job.
For the time being I’ll be using only 35mm when I buy new colour film. Hell, maybe I’ll get 5 rolls of 120 when Sweetheart and I leave for Danmark, but no 4×5″ because that is truly very expensive. I would like to master the developing and my 4×5″ Sinar before splashing out the dough for 25 sheets of colour film.
Shooting in colour will have an important influence on how I look at the world around me as I have been observing it all mostly trough shades of grey. And trust me, there are more shades of grey than 50.
