I just git my Lomo Spiral Tank.

I first want to try processing some Kodak Tri-X B&W reversal film.

Doea anyone now a link with the chemicals that are needed with all the steps?

Will i need any equipment other than the spiral tank?


Thank you!

PS: I got about 10 Ektachrome films i want to process. Thats VNF-1. Is it best to try and process them my self or send them to a lab?

Hi there,
D94a I believe is usually mixed up from component powders. It is possible that it is supplied in the Kodak reversal processing kit - but that would be a more expensive way of doing things. Personally, I use D-19 which is available in a 600g bag from Kodak. This is a good contrasty developer (which is what you need for B/W reversal). Have a look at 'movieprocessing' - a yahoo group (start at 'yahoo.com' and then search for 'movieprocessing'. There are links there to great home processing websites.

As for other equipment, a small digital scale (very cheap) is very useful. Also thermometers and mesuring jugs. Also you need a drying rack for your film - make one, or use a clothes rack!

As for VNF - this stock is NOT e6. The proper VNF-1 chemical are only available in large volume. It can be processed in a modified e6 process. Martin Baumgarten is the person to search for for info about this. He has posted lots of first class home processing material.

VNF-1 processing:

Unless you want the challenge or flexibility of home processing, using a commercial lab is usually easier.
