    I have begun shooting 4x5 color negative, and I develop it with Tetenal Colortec C41. How many sheets of 4x5 can you develop with 1 litre?

    In general, a erazonable rule of thumd is that one roll of 135-36, one roll of 120, and one sheet of 8x10 are about the same surface area.

    So four 4x5 equals one roll of 36 exposure, which is probably listed.

    Man, what a spelling mess. I meant a "reasonable rule of thumb."

    I'm 24 rolls into a 1L Tetenal Press kit so at that rate you'd get about 100 sheets!
