    Rodinal Chronicles part III - There is no try! Do or don't!

    The art of developing black and white slides is very nearly a lost one. If there are only few labs capable of processing color slides (E6 process), there are far less that will process b&w slides. Regretfully there is also precious little information available in the web as the original processes were probably patented and not in common knowledge. A couple of commercial b&w slide development kits are available, but I decided to take the 'trial and error' way and find a method for myself. This is a note about my third go at b&w slide development.

    A lesson most instructive

    Accomplishing what one aims at can feel very rewarding. However - being succesful in what you try does not necessarily teach you as much as mistakes would. This is a story of film processing failing at every possible turn. In other words a lesson most instructive...
