    Hi-
    I'm looking for a good combination (not too hard to find) of 4x5 color negative film and processing chemistry. I'll be using a Jobo rotary processor with a 3010 drum. I'm new to the DIY C-41 process and have only printed color using a Creonite machine WAY back in the day. Thanks!
    I should mention that I'm new to rotary processing also having used tray and inversion b/w processing for many years with (mostly) good results.

    Using kodak chems keeps life simple. I have also used UniColor chems without issue.

    Colour film is a personal thing and in 4x5 there aren't a lot of choices.

    I prefer 160nc followed by NPS then VC. For tunstun I prefer 100T over NPL.
