Notes on processing film

Notes

Take a velvet lined box and your exposed film into a light tight room and lock the door (so that no-one can come in to expose the film to the light).

In the dark, tear the seal and take the film from the paper backing as the film is unrolled.

When you come to the end of the film, tear it from the paper and take the tape off.

Drop the paper and tightly roll the film.

Put the film into the box and close with 1cm lip coming out the box.

Align the box onto the edge of the film wallet

Press the tape button twice for 120mm and securely attach the film to the wallet on both sides

On the film processor, check the setting needed on the wall, 120mm 125ISO is needed to be on setting ‘4’ 

Feed the wallet and film onto the belt and close the lid

Wait until the film is processed

Personal Thoughts

Having never dealt with film before, I was anxious going into a pitch black room trying to find my way around a film; however, I bit the bullet and it turned out fine! I successfully followed the instructions and my film was processed. I was very pleased with the results of my first attempts.
