mecahnic on duty

I was so impressed with the results of my Caffenol cross-process earlier that the same evening I tried processing a roll of Ilford PanF Plus I had finished off the night before at a San Jose Sharks game.

 

This was shot with a Canonet QL-17 and processed with a slightly different version of the Caffenol recipe, this one with a lot more vitamin C than I've seen elsewhere: 300ml water, 18g washing soda, 4g vitamin C crystals (normally I've seen about 1g suggested) and 12g coffee crystals. (I've since been told that the extra vit-c helps prevent the film from fogging up which is known to happen with PanF and Caffenol.)

 

Developed for 10 mins @ 20C with inversions for the first minute then 3 slow inversions every 30 seconds thereafter.

 

I didn't use a stop bath, just washed twice with 300 ml of water @ 20C (this stuff stinks up your stop bath baaad), then fixed with Ilford fixer per box instructions and a normal final wash.

 

The negatives were scanned with an Epson Perfection V600.
