    For those folks in the Atlanta area that want C-41 chemistry,
    Sonman of Georgia carries the full line of Trebla chemistry.

    The tech support at CPAC helped me find an Atlanta distributor.
    I think they may have other locations as well in Florida.

    Good news for us Atlanta area folks!

    Just because I'm not familiar with this place, is this a shop or a lab that will order for you? I've never tried asking around New York about this stuff but if people are ordering through labs (but in home-sized amounts) I'd like to ask locally.

    Now, if only there was a New Zealand distributor. All the recent blix talk has me scared to try my Tetenal kit.
    Back into the dungeon to work on my diy motorbase I go...

    They are a distributor for CPAC. They sell to labs and individuals. If you are local you can go to there place and pick up and pay. Or you can order and they will ship.

    Honestly, that's why I wanted to try splitting up the 2-part blix in my Tetenal kit (and I do think I simply had the dilution wrong). It's a bit easier & cheaper to buy the Tetenal kit than Kodak chems here (until later when I realized there was bleach replenisher on ebay) and I wanted to test the waters with C41 before going all in with Kodak.

    That said, I've been VERY pleased with the results with my blixed rolls, once I got the right amount of blix going. Don't be afraid of the blix :smile:.

    I'm over-exaggerating somewhat. I'll mostly be using my Tetenal kit to develop 4x5 so the apparent grain increase won't really be an issue, and I'm also after somewhat less saturated colours from my NC anyway, so it could be a good mix.

    It would still love to be able to find a local source for smallish quantities of Kodak/Trebla chems so I can 'do it properly'.
