    The resulting picture will be greyish. 20+ yrs old photopaper would require very special developer to work properly.

    Neat post. Never seen a safelight like that, where you change from red to normal, that’s pretty cool. That guy should buy a timer, one should not have to count to 10.

    There are a number of people who probably aren’t familiar with all of this. It’s funny to see how things used to be done, so much has changed. Thank you for taking the time and sharing it all.

    @TDI: I had exactly the same labeled magnifier – Krokus 69S, with a very sophisticated colour light head. It was based on the set of three filters: cyan, magenta and yellow. What is funny is the fact, that I bought this head separately: had spotted it on display of… small shop for gardeners. Strange – but last years of the Communist Poland were strange… Of course I developed mainly b-w photos, taken by the Zenit 12 XP SLR, very good analog camera :)
