I hate to say it, but it looks like colour neg. I've tried the Unicolor & Tentenal kits and I've gotten the same results, colours a bit off at scanning. Getting colours 100% correct with colour neg can be a bit tricky, this is the reason I've gone back to chromes.

This has been a good thread. I also use the Unicolor kit, and wet print on crystal archive. I regulate the water bath at 100 degrees F, but the temp in the tank runs about a degree low. I start developing an extra 15 seconds too, adding 5 seconds for each successive roll. I like the results, and can develop twice the recommended capacity. I'll have to try the V600 and see if it looks the same as wet printing. I've only used it for B&W so far.
Nah, it's just (well mostly) wrong gamma, which causes that milky look. You do a wet print and it won't look like that at all. You do the scan right, it won't look like that either.

Hi all ,
Thanks for all inputs, appreciate all opinions.
Polyglot > I'm quite familiar with film scanner and how to get good scan out from it. Its true that most of film scan will not look good strait out from raw scan, low contrast from raw scan means I can get more detail out from the file. I need to adjust from vuescan software to get it right.
I checked my digital thermometer just now, which I used it for check the temperature of C41 chemical. compare with an Omron medical thermometer, I found that my old digital thermometer shows 1.7 degree celsius higher than Omron. Thats means I develop my film 3.30 minutes in 36.2 degree, and blix 6.30 minutes in 36.2 degree celsius too.
I think my film must be a little bit off already ?
I will shoot another roll this Sunday and try to develop again and see if it will be more easier to scan.
After read Polyglot's FAQ about film and scanning, I really learnt a lot of knowledge regarding c41 process , and black and white as well.
thanks for the marvelous FAQ page!
