I really wanted to begin developing film. What were those three chemicals used? Is there some sort of kit I can buy?
Awesome video.

Thank you!

You need:

Developer
Fixer
Lots of water, filter if in a hard water area
A developing tank
A dark place to load the tank or a changing bag
Something to hang the film from
Scissors
A bottle opener to crack open 35mm cassettes
Some kind of timer
Sleeves for your negatives.

That's about it.

The three chemicals was developer, stop bath and fixer.
But if you don't want to, you don't need the stop bath, I use it because its faster but lots of water would do the trick.

Yes there is plenty of get started kits with everything you need.

I did another video as well that was more of a beginners guide, (also shoot with the bmpcc)

Thank so much for the reply and for all the information! I'm hoping to get an olympus om1n soon, and would love to develop my own film.

Again, thank you!

+1. I would add one item, a scanner. I do BW and then go digital, as the chems using paper irritate my hands. The idea of using film and scanning is the best of both worlds, IMHO.

I use medium format folders mostly and I see what appears to be a Zeiss folder in the vid, and Nikon 6006s. I do have one large format 6x9 plus 645 Bessa one I would sell, which has been cleaned etc by C66. Like new dual format medium folder...with a few extras.

What once was a chore is now art! I remember how grateful I was to not have to do all that when digital came around. Cool to see some people keeping the art alive. I have nostalgic memories about the darkroom but no desire to go back.

I realised I'd lost the love of darkroom work when 2 years went by and those poor sad little rolls of film were still in my fridge. Sadly when I did finally develop them, because they were bulk rolled and not in plastic canisters, the moisture had gotten to them and they were full of some sort of fungus.
