So I was putting the GX680III through its paces for the first time over the weekend, and developed the film (for the first time by myself I might add) a couple of days ago. I'd been shown how to do it by a mate, so I understood the process relatively well. The image below is typical of the 9 shots on the roll, they are all covered in 'dirt'. I'm not sure how else to describe it. The markings were on the film straight out of the developing tank, so I know it's not from poor drying. The film is Delta 400, which expired in 2000 and hasn't been refrigerated since. I tend to think that it's mould, or that the backing paper has somehow interfered with the emulsion (suggested to me by a friend).
Does anyone have any idea what's going on here?
For the record, I used expired Rodinal, so I wasn't expecting anything worthwhile to begin with!
