It’s over, Kodak.

Well, this is it. My 100 ft roll of Kodak Tri-X is over.

As it was my first time rolling film myself I wanted to write down some points for the future based on the experience.

  • always remember to put the cassette case on the spool before starting rolling
  • use good tape when fixing film on the spool or it would break loose inside the camera on the last frame
  • always remember to mark your finished rolls somehow so you can’t accidentally shoot it twice
  • if fail to do that (marking), you risk developing a clean roll of film
  • Kodak Tri-X curls as hell

Those are true lessons learned hard way but on the other hand, it was really fun to use Tri-X as you have probably seen here or here. With that said, I’m not rushing to buy another 100 ft roll of any film. Why?

While I was shooting my hand-rolled stock I saw lots of cool films people shoot with and wanted to try them as well. Being kind of bound by the film stock I had I didn’t feel right to buy more, considering the shipment prices and all.

Now when it’s over I want to take a break and try some other stuff and the first batch has already arrived from FilmPhotographyPodcast store (yay!). Hope to share the results from their films soon.

Cheers!

It’s over, Kodak.
