Great starter kit

This kit was exactly what I needed to get me started in home developing. I loved being able to develop at home, and seeing my negatives come out perfectly was great and exciting. Looking forward to investing in more chemicals to develop my next batch of film with the equipment from this kit. I highly recommend it!

Gets you started

Just enough chemicals for a single roll of film, and all the gear you need apart from the changing bag. This is a pretty basic kit suitable for anyone who just wants to play with processing, like me. It's fun and pretty easy to do, and really satisfying when you see your own photos developed and hanging in the bathroom. The nice thing about this kit is that it isn't too big so is easy to store.
