Happy new year to you as well! I hope very much that the caffenol story will go on ...

Thank you, Pete.

Yes, the story will go on, not so many posts as in the beginning, many questions have been answered, but still some new things to discover.

And the same to you. I enjoy your posts a lot even though I don't have the time to carry out the exercises.

Last night I developed my first ever roll of film using Caffenol-C-L (Agfa APX @70mins.) Haven't got around to scanning yet but looks good so far. Thank you so much for your inspiration and guidance on your blog. Keep up the good work!

Has anyone tried caffenol with large format? I just found an unopened box of Ektachrome 200 4x5, which expired in 1984 (and not refrigerated, therefore now useless as colour film), so I though I'd give it a go. I plan to use a daylight tank, as I don't have enough darkroom space for regular dunk tanks or trays. Should I use the Medium or High speed recipe? How long would be a good time to start with?

I also just ran across 8 sheets of Tri-X which I shot at 320 about 25 years ago and never processed—any suggestions for that?

Hi Wil,


Recipes? You are on your own. Good luck. I would use a good restrainer, the films will probably fog as hell. Will it be worth the effort? I doubt.

Hi Reinhold

I'm an amateur photographer from Brisbane in Queensland, Australia and have started using Caffenol-C-M last year. Because it has worked so well, I thought I should share my experience by blogging about ingredients that have worked for me and that are available locally: bubbleojill.arbaureal.com/caffenol-basics

I don't think I would have had the courage to have a go without your wonderful site - keep up the great work!
