Hello I'm new to super 8. I've been filming Kodak Ektachrome 100D so far. I'm getting the bug and want to try black white. I'm used to shooting colour photography but for a while I've wanted to start developing black and white at home too. Can I use the same equipment for photography and super 8 development? Does anybody recommend any equipment or techniques. Excited to hear responses!

It is not clear from your post - are you doing Still Film now in your darkroom, or movies?

I'm doing neither. I have around 8 rolls of black and white medium format film that i'd like to eventually develope. But more importantly I'd like to start processing black and white movies.

Thanks

David, you need a tank for film stock -- looking similar to what you know form photography, but with way larger reel or totally different construction. I recommend to use th Search here (or Google) to get some basic clue about this topic, it has been discussed before :)

Home-developing film footgae is big fun and worth the initial hassle.
Oh, and if you are on a low budget, check out my DIY tank: http://www.peaceman....processing-tank
