Shapic, welcome to SA.

If you are into film and like to dabble in a bit of home brew well we have a few other kakis that have much better results then mine using cafenol or caffenol.
If you go back to the 1st post on this thread I did describe how to get the basic going then its up to you to experiment with different types of instant coffee, concentration and timing the "wash" even can try with Vit C or ascorbic acid. I even use hypo from the aquarium shops as fixer. The beauty about this concoction is non-toxic to the environment compared to traditional film developers. But I heard sodium carbonate (washing powder NOT baking powder aka sodium bicarbonate) maybe hard to fine in your area, but in Penang no problem.

You may even want to check out my latest using paracetamol as developer here : http://www.shutterasia.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38960

Hmm,... are those patches finger prints? The developing seem to have gone well,... but it is lacking the contrast of the characteristics of the Lucky film. Maybe taking out the soda? Just use coffee and vit C.

I think its just a combination of under exposure & not bad development control.
Pre-wetting seems to help the final images. Overall it was a hands on with the coffenol, some images I saw on the Net has excellent IQs.

Lucky film is quite a value for money film is ideal for experimenting ie developers or pushing (to ISO800).

The quality of the scanned images are much better then my quick snaps via macro lens & pp.

Looks like there is potential in the caffenol image

What's the dev time ?
Water temp ?
What fixer ?
Did you use the VitC ?
What scanner used ?
Sorry, been a long time since I last visited here. Here is my details.

Soli, missed your question.

Hypo the type you use to reduce/eliminate chlorine when you change the fish tank water. Should be able to get in any aquarium store.

Just a couple of tea-spoonful for one roll for 5-6 minutes, to re-use increase the time say to 8-9minutes etc.
