    You can, the only tricky bit is keeping the solutions at 38 degrees...

    I got a couple of out of date E6 kits I have been meaning to use...

    Also out of date slide film is great for xpro

    Camera Markets

    Ok, so I'm a lazy bugger sometimes, finally here is the info for the 2nd hand markets. Apologies for not getting it here sooner.

    MELB :

    For those taking public transport there is tram #75 right out the front, #'s 70 & 72 about a minute walk away. Trains via Camberwell station, which is a 5 minute walk away, are going to be off a bit due to trackwork, bus replacements from Burnley station.

    If you're driving there is a carpark behind the civic centre but there is a lot of renovation work going on so I'm not sure how you can access it as there are a few road closures. There's a heap of carparks around the shopping areas, just a short walk. It may be busy due to the regular sunday market traffic. Beware of the 'grey ghosts'.

    SYDNEY :

    Umm, not being from Sydney I'll leave that info to those who know. Here is the ad. I think I originally posted an incorrect date for Syd, it is on the 19th.

    aren't the chemicals used more toxic than b&w ones?

    nah I don't think so. As long as you avoid getting them on your hands (ie wear gloves, although it's a good idea to do that with B+W chemicals anyway), they shouldn't be a problem. if you're really cautious, wear a respirator (I do when I'm mixing powdered chemicals).

    Question, what do you do with your used developers? Down the gurgler or do you store and dispose otherwise?
    I've never developed anything in Oz but I've been told in some countries chemicals in drainage is an issue and should be avoided.

    Stop Bath can be poured down the drain as long as it's just a standard stop bath and doesn't have any hardeners or anything in it. You should dilute it as you dispose of it.

    Developer doesn't get the bad stuff from paper and film, but it does have the worst irritants in it. Still, a lot of people say it doesn't matter either and just to dump it.

    Fixer ends up with all the excess silver in it, so this is the one you're really not supposed to tip down the drain. There are methods of reclaiming silver but I believe they're not the cheapest for people doing occasional home developing. However, I've read and heard that simply leaving some steel wool in the Fix will soak up all the silver.

    I'm not too sure about hypo, I don't think it's too bad. Bleach is well the same as household bleach...whatever that is. I've only used b&w chemicals at home so I'm not sure.

    Apart from stop bath, you're really meant to balance the pH of all the chemicals before you put them down the drain into the sewers. I don't know how one goes about this at home. After this is done they are all biodegradable (apart from silver).

    The council has 3 or 4 days a year you can take your chemicals to the dump for free, or I guess you can go and pay something other times.

    You should dispose of all of them properly. I don't know how many do. I have a couple of milk bottles with chemicals in them that I'm not quite sure what to do with haha.

    anyone else get to the melbourne market?

    Picked up a Mamiya C33 and a 77mm yellow filter. Sorely tempted by a stereo camera and a speed graphic that i saw, but wallet size got the better of me!
