    Use the regular C-41 instructions with either a Jobo processor or a Unidrum and Uniroller. With the Unidrum you need to compensate for cool down during processing. Instructions exist.

    was this film cost and chemical cost combined?

    I can't see Fuji raising current prices to that level. I'd love to shoot some 8x10 astia and RVP50 :smile:.
    our local mtns. just got their first snow of the season.

    I have been doing it in open trays. I use a food service tempering bath. Works fine.
