Wow. Last night, I developed my first film ever. Actually I did 4 rolls, two black+white and two C41 film. I do have some questions though.
1. I found that 120film is a pain to load. Any tips to make it as painless as possible? I have a Paterson universal tank with plastic reel.
2. Can I re-use the stabilizer for C41 development?
3. For B&W, I noticed some dark banding on the right side of the negative for ONE of the rolls. Also, I noticed that the upper corners of the B&W negatives are pretty grainy. Are these development errors?
I used Tri-X at 400ISO and Pro 400H at 200ISO. The developers I used are XTOL 1:1 dilution and Freestyle Unicolor for C41. I'm attaching samples for each one. I'm also attaching a crop of the upper left corner of the B&W. It shows the grain I mentioned for #3.
