B&W Developing Kits
RetroCine has assembled a complete, pre-measured kit for use by movie enthusiasts who want to become fully independent and be able to shoot, develop and project their films the same day, but who did not want to get into the many details of the chemistry itself. The kit is very easy to use and appealing to the do-it-yourselfer who wants complete control over their film, to try push/pull processing and special effects without added lab costs.
The kits are complete and pre-measured and include basic safety supplies. Complete & detailed mixing and processing instructions are available on the RetroCine site. The kits are designed for photographers, students, DIYers, hobbyists, and anyone else who wants to become fully independent.
The kits are set up so that absolutely no measuring of chemicals is required. All chemistry is powder (no liquids), so it is easy to handle and has a long shelf-life. Simply pour into water, mix and you are ready to start processing you own film! All the chemicals in the kit are photographic-grade.
All kits are shipped via Fedex/UPS ground and all chemicals are legal for transport within the United States and Canada. If you are outside the United States or Canada and are interested in a kit, please contact us via email.
