Actually the list seems quite complete, but I would bring a thermometer.
We did not bring any bottles, but got ahold of some at the camp.
A changing bag and one daylight processing tank actually worked well, even for infrared film .
If you want to have positives in the field, you might want to consider using slide film or an alternative process like cyanotype.
Printing requires a lot more stuff and (dark)room than just developing film.
For making contact prints you need (in addition to the stuff mentioned):
- Photographic Paper
- 3 Trays, large enough to hold your paper
- Developer, Stop bath and Fixer
- A reliable, timeable light source
On doing color: You can do C41 (color negatives) at ~30° Celsius,
so leaving your stuff in the sunlight on a summer day is enough.
Times for a Tentanal Chemestry or a Fuji Hunt Press Kit we currently use at the metalab are (roughly):
-8 minutes Developer
-1 minute Stopbath (you can skip this if you don't have one handy)
-4 minutes Wash
-8 mins Bleach
-7 mins Fixer
-8 mins Wash
That being said, black and white is much more forgiving to less-than-optimal conditions.
One last tought: if you want to do pinhole work and get positives instantly, the impossible project is starting to offer new 8x10 inch film,
but a pack with 15 shots will cost about a hundret bucks. If you are interested in that I might be able to hook you up with someone.
(tough the current run might be sold out already)
