    Hi,

    Hope someone can help with this oddball query.

    I have some ECN2 "movie film" that I would like to develop. Unfortunately the only developer I have is Color Developer No2 which is usually used with ECP (movie "print" film).

    Does anyone know if Color Developer No2 wil work OK with ECN2?
    I plan to use the formula on page 30 of this Kodak publication (substituting CD2 FOR CD3):

    Of course I could just make up a batch and try.....

    Thanks from

    Emulsion.

    CD2? Why not CD3?

    PS: I have been doing some research and one source said that CD2 is 10 times as powerful as CD3. Does this mean I can use 1/10th as much and achieve a comparable result?
