    Is it ok to use Fuji Bleach (Negacolor RA-bleach) and Kodak flexicolor fixer in C-41 process? Are they compatible?

    I'm having trouble finding small quantities of C-41 bleach in Portland, OR area and I can only get Fuji in reasonable amounts. So I've been thinking of using Kodak for the rest of the chemicals and Fuji for bleach. Is that a good idea or not? Has anybody done it?

    Thanks!

    Yes. Each product goes to completion, and if you check the ingredients the fuji and kodak are probably the same anyways.

    Thank you Nicholas! You made me feel better. If I can't find Kodak, I'll give it a try.
