I will have to start E-6 development. I live in a place where it is impossible to get slide film developed decently (if at all); I will even have to import the chemistry from abroad. I have looked at earlier threads on APUG and picked up some points; questions remain which I would like to ask to those experienced in the process. 1) there seem to be two kits on the market: Arista and Tetenal; Kodak no more. Are they good, which is to be recommended? How do they keep? Are possible additions advisable, like a bath in formalin to boost permanence? 2) temperature control: I don't have a Jobo, how far do I get with temperature control by a waterbath which I adjust to the desired temperature and then hope to keep reasonably stable until development is finished? Or do you think some mechanic devise is indispensible? Which are possible problems with the simpler method? 3) Considering the fact that I will have to get everything from abroad, is it possible to make up the chemistry be oneself? Are there recipies?
