Indu film + Old Agfa Click III + Caffenol = Weird

This was where I went kamikaze. An old expired Indu film on an Agfa Click III which hadn’t been used for at least the last 20 years and developing in Caffenol with a slightly different mix to previous times. I am lucky at least this turned up.

Water 450ml
Instant Coffee (Sunrise) 10g
Vitamin C 4g
Washing Soda 10g approximately.

Developed for 20 minutes. Agitated thrice every minute for the first ten. Let stand for next 5. Agitated thrice. Let stand for another 5 minutes.
