Hi,

 

New to the board.  I am strictly a hobbiest planning to start shooting with my Bolex H16 Leader again.  About a decade ago, I used to shoot and develop my own negative and then send it out to have a print made.  I actually had some fairly consistent success using the Morse G3 tank, but I was only doing negative.  I would like to take a try at reversal this time around.  Kodak includes some detailed information on processing reversal film included with the films technical data, but I can't find anything that describes the actual mechanics of the re-exposure process.  Kodak just says "800 foot candle seconds" for its Tri-X reversal film, but I'm trying to find out how that translates into using the re-exsposure window in the G3 (i.e. what type of light to use, how many times to you pass th film in front of the re-exposure window, etc.)

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Peter

Thank you so much for this. All the versions of these instructions that I could find on line were incomplete and typically ended after the instructions for developing negative film.  Do you have any advice as far as updating these instructions for modern chemicals, or any other considerations, otherwise I will just follow the instructions Kodak provides - and keep my fingers crossed.

Hello Peter....

I don't process films by hand, so I can't help you with updated formulas.

 

Check out these sites, you may find the info you are seeking.

 

 

An old site, many links no longer work, but worth checking out the ones that do.

Look for sites of experimental filmmakers.

 

Sadly, not many doing hand processing anymore.
