    When I ordered a new Belair X6-12 I was worried that the shallower depth of field on the 90mm lens would lead to lots of out of focus shot and waste my precious 120 film. Not any more, with this amazingly simple rangefinder that can be customized for any zone focus camera.

    Do-it-Yourself: Colour Film Developed in Rodinal

    Most easily-available and cheap film is colour negative (CN), which uses a process called C41 (or CN-16) for development. While you can do C41 development at home, the chemicals are a bit nastier, and it's cheaper and easier to use a black-and-white developer. They also keep for longer. Plus, developing colour film in Rodinal gives you a unique look - not quite like anything else.
