http://gallery.leica-users.org/v/focusit/manes+01+sm.jpg.html Bessa R2a, Elmar-C 90, Efke 50 Jim Shulman Wynnewood, PA Broke out the Elmar-C from the storage cabinet today. Also solved a vexing problem-I was getting uneven development on some recent rolls of b/w film, where a band at the bottom was more developed than a band at the top. It was always on the horizontal, and only happened when I was processing one roll of film in my two-roll tank. Then it dawned on me: the reel was sliding around during agitation, and not returning to the bottom position. As a result, the film was unevenly immersed in developer/fixer. When I added a second empty reel on top (which prevented any possible sliding), the problem was solved.
