Are the reels included in this kit the convertible ones that allow you to do 35mm along with 120 film?
Asked by: David
Yes, you can convert the reel to 120, 126 and 35. But to use both reel at once, only on 35 format. To use on 120 or 126, it's 1 reel each time.

I see everyone using the changing bag and basically doing this blind. What I wonder is can you just do it in lets say a closet with a safety bulb, kind of like a make shift dark room?
Asked by: Charles
If you have access to a light tight space, you may load your film there instead of using a changing bag. Unfortunately, loading your film to a tank must been done in complete darkness, changing bag or light-tight room otherwise.

If only processing one reel at a time, can the chemistry be stored to be reused on the second?
Asked by: Jeffrey
According to technical specifications provided by Ilford (I've attached a link below), yes, you can. However, they have some further instructions listed: "2. Process one at a time and re-use the developer: Another method is to use only approx. 500ml of the developer solution and retain the remainder. Process the first film as normal. Remix the used developer with the remainder of the unused. Use this solution for the next film and increase the processing time by 10%." https://www.ilfordphoto.com/amfile/file/download/file/1947/product/1731/ Keep in mind that tank solution (developer + water) has a relatively short shelf-life, and loses strength rapidly as the day goes on.
