I've just developed a couple of films, and learned 3 things

    My hand held meter, a Sekonic Auto-Lumi, is under reading - the negatives were overexposed.

    My Zenit B has a tapering shutter.

    The lens on a Contaflex 1 is sharper than the motley collection of M42 lenses I used on the Zenit.

    I've got a few to do (if I ever finish the buggers), plus a couple of found films I was given - but the darkroom I usually use is going to be out of use for six months.

    Time to get the changing bag into the outside loo - I might even have a go at setting an enlarger up on the seat, now there's a thought!

    I think the found films may just get stand developed in Rodinal - minimum effort if they've lost their images.

    It's over 10 years since I used a darkroom - I load the tank in the changing bag, and use the laundry sink. The films are scanned.

    To be honest I mostly scan these days, but it ain't the same...
