Dev and Print

The 'hand job'. Small lengths of film (6' - 20') can be tray developed one at a time using a sees - saw 'U' motion in a 'universal' developer. Or film can be laid flat submerged in the tray of developer and 'rolled' back and forth in a spooling motion for the required times. Obviously negative 16mm is done in complete darkness! Use dilutions for negative film for neg. stock, and for print stock use the dilution for paper. Timing is a matter of trial, error and test strips, but the neg. times should follow the instructions on the bottle. Print stock will usually take 3 1/2 minutes. But as you are doing this under a red safe light... when it looks good it's done! Repeat the procedure with stop bath, rinse and fix. And wear rubber gloves, as chemistry can be bad for your health.
