I got some Kentmere inside one of them cameras, the old one I think, and I really look forward to see how that will develop when I slosh it around in some Rodinal or something else more or less convenient when I get home at some point.
I got it in two versions, in fact, the Kentmere thing. Slow type, and faster type. I think it's only the faster one loaded at the moment, and that some Ilford film will be found inside one of them cameras, but you can never be sure until you open the camera after the roll is done. I'm too lazy to take notes of what I put inside. I used to do that, but for some reason I have lost track of it. I might need to get back on the line and sort it all out. It's nice to know, after all.
Oh yes, I know that most decent cameras got a frame thingy on the backside where you can put a piece of the film box just to make you remember things like that. Seems like the more you pay for a camera, the less extra you get. On them old german things you got nothing like that anyway. You do have a tiny sort of wheel with some ASA markings on, but it's totally stupid as there's no on-board light meter on the thing. And I suppose that's why you just keep on forgetting to adjust it.
Some times I remember to adjust this wheel on the black one, which is a bit newer and got a light meter attached. The batteries drained out some time early last year tho, so no big point in flicking that wheel either... unless you need to remember which ASA film you put in, of course.
At the backside of one of them old buildings at Devold Fabrikker back home some time early this spring. Me and my son were out and about to try find a few places we could return to do some snapping at a later stage. We still need to go back, I think. I really like the old and slightly overgrown concrete walls you get in the old part of this place. The new part is OK to, but different. All clean, fresh paint and what have we all. This is a lot more fun, I think. Someone should buy this place and make it into something... but I have said that before some time. They should though. Buy it, I mean, and make it into a gallery or something. The huge hole in the roof may stop them from paying too much, I would think. Ah, and it's just a scan of the negative. I'll print it some other day.
So, that's the lesson for today. Keep a few notes of what you're doing. They might come in handy at some point. After all there's a couple of stops in difference between a 100 and a 400 ASA film. Not that it will create any very big issues if you forget, but a tiny little minor one might come over you as you start wonder how the best way to develop the film will be.
Usually the answer will be to mix some very thin Rodinal sollution, throw it over the film and forget it all for a couple of hours. At least that's what I do when my head starts spinning after trying to put too many variables into the equation. It's simple, and it works good enough. Usually.
