Black and white films

Important! These black and white films should not be processed as C-41 color film. Color processing uses a bleach step which will remove the image. Be sure your local lab develops it in black and white chemistry and does not subject it to a bleach process.

Excellent mail-order processing for black and white film is available from 120PROCESSING.COM and Blue Moon Camera.

Photographic fixer
, dry powder mix. Makes 1 litre (1 US quart). Ideal formula for fixing all modern black and white films, papers, or spreadable photographic emulsions. This is standard sodium thiosulfate fixer, not ammonium "rapid" fixer, so be sure to give your film adequate time in the fixer, at least five minutes. Washes out in three to five minutes if you use a sodium sulfite wash aid, but if no wash aid is available, a fifteen minute wash will be adequate.
