It was only a few weeks ago that I said “I think I’m done with 35mm film.” Now I own a Leitz Focomat V35, which is a 35mm-only enlarger. I’ve never claimed to be consistent.
I’ve only made a few quick prints with it, but so far it’s living up to its reputation as the best 35mm enlarger ever made.
The only place nearby that does a decent job processing color film has been the local Meijer. Lately though they’ve had an increasing number of days where things were “out of order.” I usually don’t shoot enough color film to justify processing it myself, so I bring it to Meijer and pick it up in an hour - most of the time.
Today, however, they had yet another equipment problem and this time it ruined several rolls of film. My rolls.
Now I’m re-thinking my options for color processing at home. Gotta find some chemicals that last more than a few days once mixed. Or maybe I should make good on my threat to stop shooting color film.
