The way I understand the process is that the developer reduces silver halide that has seen light into elemental silver, this only works at higher pH values. Then you put in stop bath (acid = low pH) to stop this process and then in the next step the fixer dissolves the unreduced silver halide so a clear film with just silver grains where light fell is left behind. This step also removes any anti reflection or anti halo layer that might be present in the film. Since you quickly rinsed and stopped I'm assuming you didn't develop much of the silver halide that got light after the lid fell off I think any fogging will be imperceptible. Only if undeveloped silver halide is exposed to light a long time before fixing you will start seeing some fogging.


Btw, I never wash/rinse after pooring out the developer, I just put in the stop bath right away to stop the development as quickly as possible, but I use relatively concentrated developer, frequently stirring and shorter development times so stopping at the right time is more important than when using longer times static development with more dilute developer.   

You can see the April Foolishness 2021 exhibition here Another great show of the talent we have on Dyxum

I can confirm that I seem to have got away with it. Might have one patch (residual bit of developer on the film?). It amazes me that a fogged film leader can clear so much in fixer.

I've found a few old slide films in their original package, they stayed in a dark more or less with stable temperatures - and i'm going to try to get something out of those (having a Dynax 500Si).

When it's no good - showing/scanning it for you - i'll let you know - and otherwise we'll do our best to use as much as possible (All Fuji - having 20 100ISO films in the fridge - and one in the camera 400ISO).

It's a long time ago i even shot with an analog camera - but the 28-135 is ready to fire (let's start with the WK tomorrow when they pass near Leuven...).

I regularly shoot old slide films (Velvia 50 and Velvia 100 plus a little Agfa RS50) and have lots in my fridge. Shoot at box speed. If you have a very high contrast scene, and if you can make double exposures in your camera, shoot a defocused blank image (white card, grey card, sky) at 3 stops under -exposed then shoot your main image at the correct exposure on top of it. That will help lower the contrast

My second roll – also shot with the Dynax 7 – Kentmere 400 developed in Fomadon R09 at 1:50 dilution. Film scanned with Plustek Opticfilm 135i and VueScan.

This roll follows on from the last, so is a bit aviation-heavy…

Bob02-10 ~ frame 18 ~ Tiger Moth flyover (could have done with more movement in the ‘prop’)


Bob02-11 ~ frame 19 ~ Mustang close-up


I took a trip to Brands Hatch last Friday, where they were having a bike track-day. I took a series of shots with the 7 in STF mode shooting moving stuff – none of which were quite as successful as I’d have hoped, but here is one for interest’s sake.

LockDown Bicycle Ride

All with my Minolta Alpha 7 film camera on JCH Streetpan 400 film. Most with a deep red filter. This film has extended red sensitivity and adds a little infrared effect to images. Not enough to be blunt, just enough to be different.

1. Thunder (impressionist)
I'll include the B&W original but I saw this image as having great potential in Corel Painter

While not specifically an aviation nut, I did get my Private Pilots license in my 20's. It was fun for a while but far too expensive unless you became an instructor and then used your hours to find an industry job (some friends did).

However, I have been to Warbirds Over Wanaka twice and we are booked to go again in April next year.
They put on some very realistic dog fights with explosions, noise, smoke and even a crash! The airport is up high and there's a big drop off at one end of the runway. There is always at least one plane (usually a Russian Yak) that disappears down the valley looking for all money like it dove into the ground; followed by a massive explosion, rising explosion cloud and noise.
One of my motorcycle ride groups goes there every few years and another, who has a helicopter repair business at the airport, puts on a Long Lunch for us al as well as some special guests.

In the 90's, I worked across the road from Wigram Air Base and old aircraft flew over us almost every day. Tiger Moths, de Haviland, Spitfires, Yaks, Zero's and a few jets.

No point selecting just one good shot because they all are. You obviously know your stuff!

Tried my first time "camera scanning" (weird expression btw, it is not scanning, it is digitizing). Did not yet finish my roll inside my Dynax 5. These are with my Fuji GW690II loaded with Lomography CN400:

1.


2.


3.


Need to become more consistent with editing, but I am happy with the results

Minolta SRT Spurious* Kentmere 400 film, R09
*Spurious because although it wears the mantle of an SRT Super, it is in fact, an SRT 101. The original top-plate was dented so I substituted one from a dead ‘Super’. The Super top-plate is a little more substantial than the one for the 101.

Bob03-03 ~ frame 15 ~ Steps to the Chapel at the Old Royal Naval College
