Hello everyone. So far I have processed 2 rolls of E-6 (Velvia 100) in Kodak's single use kit and they look pretty good but I had a couple of lingering questions. The first concerns the final washing method. Kodak recommends "3 or 4 short washes over 6 min if flowing water is not used." Would the Ilford wash method for B+W be sufficient for this purpose? Is there any danger of over-washing E-6 film and damaging the dyes? Secondly I hear different things about the use of formaldehyde stabilizers versus the "Final rinse" contained in the kit. Specifically, the formaldehyde stabilizers seem to be designed for processes that include a full wash and the "Final rinse" is for minilab processes that leave lots of residual fixer in the film. Basically I was wondering which is better for archival purposes when used with small tank home processing methods. Would the dyes last longer if I were using a formaldehyde stabilizer instead of the final rinse that comes with the kit? Lastly I also read on one of the APUG forums where someone said you have to use hot air to dry the film or else the dyes won't properly stabilize. Is there any truth to this? Kodak's info simply says "not above 140 deg F." Currently I have only been drying them at room temp. Like anything else with film processing there is alot of hearsay so I was trying to get the "real deal " so to speak. I know there are lots of people hear with a wealth of info.
