Fee Fee is no more, that whole row of shops are now set for demolition/conservation,

good photo oppotunity also, go in the backlane and you can enter some of the shops... really really interesting, I went there last week.

You can learn to process your own negative at home. You can get all the chemicals from fotoguide or cathy down at peninsular plaza.

For the start you would only need developer and fixer. Wetting agent would be a plus to get. You would also need a developing tank, a thermometer, a measuring cylinder and a measuring containers. to mix the chemicals. Development temperature is normally at 21 degrees celcius.

The initial cost will be quite expensive but if you are doing alot of b/w, it will be very cheap. I always uses my storeroom to load my film into the developing tank. Don't even need a darkroom or darkbag. Just make sure you have a cloth to block of the light leaking from the bottom of the door.

For printing, you could send it to RGB or spectra if you can't build a darkroom in your house.

this means they scan or something, convert to B&W scale, and print onto regular colour paper? sort of a fake one? what's the difference?

normal B&W takes 3 days? how about konata's fake B&W?
