We continue our mini-series of Film Fun videos, and today is the big day! In this week’s video, we develop a roll of black and white ILFORD 120 medium format film.
The podcast released for this episode is just an iPhone optimized low-resolution version of the full-sized video, which will enable you to view during your commute etc. but to see any detail, it’s best to view the full-sized video below.
Here’s a rundown of the entire Film Fun series.
- Part #1 – Loading and Unloading a Yashica-D TLR Camera with 120 Medium Format Film (see here)
- Part #2 – Feeding 120 Film into a Paterson Reel for Developing (see here)
- Part #2b – Feeding 120 Film into a Paterson Reel inside the Changing Bag (see here)
- Part #3 – Developing a Roll of ILFORD 120 Black and White Film (video below)
- Part #4 – Scanning Medium Format 120 Film (see here)
Although I shot film for around 20 years until around 2000, I never had the chance to develop my own, so this whole experience has been very new to me and a LOT of fun. I won’t spill the beans on what happens in part three just yet, but as I mention a few times in the videos, I am sharing this first time experience with you, blow-by-blow, warts and all.
Below the video, you’ll also find links to everything that you need to develop your own film on B&H. Figuring this out was one of the largest hurdles, so I hope that will be useful for you too.
Here’s the main video for Part #3!
