Welcome to our 120 processing knowledge base. We will be adding more content to this page as you, our customers, ask more questions. Please, if you do have a question, we would love to hear from you!
Scanning 120 Negatives
Our first topic in the Knowledge Base is about scanning 120 (Medium-Format) Negatives. Once you’ve gotten your medium-format film developed, what can you do with it? Unless you are printing it yourself (and bravo if you are!), you will probably want to get your negatives scanned. This will allow you to do many different things, from sharing your images on the Internet to e-mailing them to friends to ordering prints or enlargements. If you want to have your negatives scanned, you can do it in two ways: by purchasing a scanner and scanning them yourself, or by having the negatives scanned professionally. This article will help you sort out which course of action you should take, depending on your goals. To read more about Scanning 120 negatives please click here.
Push processing refers to intentionally over-developing a roll of film to allow the formation of additional density in the emulsion of the film. It can be accomplished by either increasing the time or the temperature during the formative development step. Pull processing refers to intentionally under-developing a given roll of film, i.e. giving it less time (or a lower temperature) than is recommended. Push and pull processing has become very popular with the new generation of film users, who enjoy experimentation and want unusual, even unpredictable results.
