Set this to my avatar today

My son Dylan, age 10, who enjoys a DE wet shave on occasion (albeit without a blade in the razor Smile).

Taken on a Mamiya C330 using Fuji Neopan 400 film.
Camera settings, probably something like F2.8 for 1/60th sec.
Developed in Rodinal and negative scanned.

Thanks chaps.

The Mamiya C330 TLR is a very special camera, one of my favorites.

How difficult is it to find developers of the film? Can you still get it developed locally, do you do it yourself or do you have to send it out? Up until 3 years ago there was still a shop within walking distance from me who still could develop film the old fashioned way if you were willing to pay for it. Always just seemed to look better than the machine developed rolls.

I do it myself and the chemicals are pretty easy to get a hold of.

B+W is pretty simple, you only need developer, fixer and water at a bare minimum and temperature control isn't particularly fussy.

I also do colour from time to time using a kit from Fuji. This is more time consuming, temperature control is more important and there are about five different chemical stages required.

When I was in high school I spent a year working at a camera shop and frequently developed their B&W rolls. I loved it.
