This week I finally finished a video I made way back during the lockdown here in Austria, Graz – this April 2020. I also took the opportunity to utilise my latest toy. Which I also ordered way back in the beginning of May. This toy, well, is far from such, it is the Black Magic Design ATEM Mini! That’s a basically an advanced video switcher. This of course allows me to produce videos more dynamically. I can just jump into it and record, mix all in one. You can see the video segment which I used with ATEM at the end of the video. You’ll notice my non-Corona haircut too!
I’m getting ahead of myself here. This blog post and video is regarding the Colortec 1L kit from Tetenal. In the video I show what’s in the box and most importantly the images that I self developed. I also explain that you can use the kit after you’ve reached it’s limit for experimental purposes such as Bleach Pass By and Color Soup.
The film and camera used in the images below is the Canon AF35M aka Autoboy and some Kodak Colorplus 200 35mm film
If you like you can listen to post too.
During lockdown here in Austria, I think got more into film than usual. Certainly I had plenty of time to try out C41 Color development at home. The kit is straightforward to use and inexpensive. It gives you 12-18 rolls of film output. However afterwards you don’t need to dispose of the chemicals straightforward. My plan is to try out Bleach By Pass and colour soup at a future date. Currently my kit has a few more rolls to go.
I’m using a Jobo Processor but in the past I use an IKEA plastic square container in the bathtub and kept the chemicals at consistence temperature. The bathtub is just to limit the mess and provide a little insulation to the container. The container acts as a water bath for the chemicals in their appropriate bottles.
Either way, which ever method you use. The Tetenal kit I have found fatihfully for developing Color Film.
