yes I had that problem a few weeks ago...I set up a shot using polaT55 and a Cambo 4x5 camera, gave the pouch a good massage yet the result proved that the chems had totally dried out...it was worth a go..!
I just ordered new lids for my developing cannisters... they were leaking so much I could no longer do anything with them. I still don't have a slide scanner for them but just noticed in my b & h catalog that they have an adapter to fit the coolscan... I'm excited! I want to print but sometimes a scan is all that is needed for the moment. God so much to handle... new bulbs for my enlargers and build a light baffle in the basement ...whew.
