I am successfully developing at home C-41 color negative (and XP2 B&W) and E-6 based slide films using the Arista development packs. After I started recently working with the E-6 process, a few differences compared to C-41 became obvious to me regarding the recommended steps in the development procedures: 1. E-6 requires washing with water between first developer and color developer, and then afterwards before adding Blix. C-41 has no water wash in between developer and Blix addition - why? Would it be better to add a washing step in the C-41 process similar to the E-6 process to avoid contamination of Blix and stop the developer? Or is there a reason that this shouldn't be done? 2. E-6 has no final stabilizer wash as it is done in the C-41 process. I understood from earlier discussions in this forum that the stabilizer acts to preserve the color negative - any specific reason why this is not needed with slide film? 3. Is there a difference in oxidation stability of the developer used in C-41 and the two developers used in E-6? Are both color developers in C-41 and E-6 the same?
I just discovered this emulsion by chance and immediately wondered if anyone has tried it yet; if so, please tell us a little about the emulsion's strengths and weaknesses. Tell us a little about the prints that result from using this film: http://shop.revolog.net/product/kolor I haven't tried this film yet, but it does seem interesting; I think I'll order some for myself. I'm not sure if it is an emulsion that one would use for a serious project; it seems to be more of a recreational film. Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this film.
I'm getting ready to do my first home developing of C-41 film. I bought a Unicolor kit but was wondering if the Unicolor, Tetenal, Ultrafine, and all of the others that you see are basically the same? People talk about them like they are interchangeable...are they? (I know that they have small variations in temps and such) I'm just wondering if one is better than the others for whatever reason.
I am looking for recommendations on on good photo labs in Germany. I need C-41 development and scan, mostly 35mm but also medium format. I don't need some exclusive high end labs, but also don't want to send my film to the corner drugstore photo lab. Any recommendations please. Thank you!
