    (NOTE: I posted this on too but only noticed afterwards
    that it is a very low (relatively) volume news group)

    Hi, i've never developed my own film before and I want to start now, it is
    my birthday very soon and for it I would like to get the kit necesary to
    develop my first black and white photos. I was woindering if there are any
    "starter kits" or somehting similay that contain everything you need to
    start (development tank, chemicles etc..).

    If you know of any could yuo please give me a link to somehwere I could buy
    them online. If no kits are available then links to sites where I can buyu
    everyhtign separately would also be very welcome, preferably somewhere
    reasonably priced with reliable delivery.

    And last but not least, I have a 35mm camera already but it is very poor, I
    need an entry level camera, I dont want to spend a lot in case my enthusiams
    wears off. If it matters one of my main subject matters is the reflection of
    the sun in other things (such as in lakes, on windows, off cars etc..) Oh
    and on a final note, something robust is imperitive, im a clumsy begger.

    I certainly hope you can help, thanks in advance

    Eh? I would say that printing is *far* harder to learn to do consistently
    well than film developing.

    Perhaps, but it dosen't matter if you screw up, you only waste paper
    while experimenting, thats my point really.

    Well that is true. However, my experience (which may not be typical) is that
    developing my own films is safer than sending them to a lab. I've never lost
    one yet! (or even screwed up the development).
