I forgot to mention in my last post that from my fifth roll I stand develop with Caffenol. It works great! I'm on my tenth roll now and since I now know what I'm doing it all goes well.
Stand developing consists simply of you letting your negatives simmer in the chemical soup for 1 hour without much stirring or agitation. Then stop and fix like any other method. Different films react slightly different to the Caffenol, but so far the varations are small. There's a LOT on caffenol developing and methods out there if you're interested.
Now I've scanned the stylish FLT roll from something like the 1970s or Eighties. Five pictures came out, of one baby, a kid and the photographer's wife (probably). Here they are:
The camera which held the film is a Bencini NK 135 and it caught my eye because of the design which places it somewhere between an SLR and a Holga. It possibly makes as badly focused pictures as these but I'm willing to give it a try eventually. I will report on this blog.
