I've been reading a couple of threads on fixer and what to do after it, but I haven't found the information I wanted on Kodafix so I'd like to ask for some comments on my current film fixing procedure, and whether it could cause me troubles in the long term storage: I'm doing only 35mm and 120 rollfilm. * I pre-soak, develop, and stop (water for Efke, Vinegar+H2O for other films) normally * I use Kodafix fixer 1+3 mostly because I do Efke and APX100 films, which are said to have a more fragile emulsion. I fix for 3 mins, continuous agitation * I then make a quick water wash (30secs) * I use Kodak Hypo-Clearing Agent 1+4 from stock solution and agitate continously for 2 minutes * I wash the film for 10 mins in running water. The use of HCA reduces the washing time from 20mins to 10mins, according to Kodak documentation. My reel goes in a bucket with a hole at the bottom to let the water flow. I also empty and fill the bucket 3-4 times. I've used this on Efke R25-50, Agfa APX100, Delta 400/3200, Neopan1600, and Tri-X 400TX. So my questions: - Do I really need HCA in my situation? Is it making a real difference with film? - Should I wash more longer because I use a hardening agent?
