I have a couple of questions about the chemicals inside instant film. As I understand the principle, there are capsules of chemicals and when the picture comes through the rollers of the camera, the capsules break and developed the picture. My question is as follows. What chemicals are in the capules. Developer, stop bath and fixer? Do the capsules have to break in a specific order. If not, how does one prevent the stop bath from neutralizing the developer before the developer has finished developing. Thank you for your time.
