I have some very old darkroom chemicals left. So I tested the effectiveness of the undiluted Fixer this should clear the silver from an old film in less than a minute so the film base is clear. I tried it to no effect. I didn’t think that Fixer could go off.
I was think about buying a ten-year old Canon EOS 1v Camera body to do film Infrared photography. I love the grain with film, digital noise even with B&W is nowhere near as attractive.
But as the potential seller of the EOS 1 v didn’t have one and my fingers smell of the Fixer that stinks which has put me off the idea of playing with film again.
So the money I would have spent on the camera I bought the vastly overpriced Silver Efex Pro 2 software, nowhere near as good as film but a lot more adaptable and presumably a lot less smelly hopefully.
