A Developing Idea

People have been developing their own film at home since 1826, long before processing machines, and we’ll keep doing it long after it stops making economic sense for labs to provide the service. In terms of black & white film, we’ve already crossed that threshold.
Indeed. Development of a 120 film (12 exposures) costs £5 for colour, £9 for B&W. I'll get a couple of rolls of colour done, but then I'm moving on to B&W, and doing the bugger myself. The link above has the basics, (you can get all the gear, he says, for less than $50, so that's £25).

This fella has more detail .

There's a film scanner to think of, too...
