No, by one-shot, I mean I use the developer only once before I throw it out. I use a rotary processor that uses much less liquid than an inversion tank.
fuck it im just gonna go with Tetenal (aka unicolor) C-41 press kit. I read the instructions seems simple. Plus good reviews and sounds like it gets consistant results.
I put in whatever the Jobo tank recommends, for example, last night I processed 6 sheets of 4x5 in the small 2500 series tank and they say to use 270mL. Comes out fine. I do reuse the bleach, though, since it can be reused and is the most expensive part. For 8x10 sheets in a 2500 tank, I use 125mL per sheet with great results.
The only color prints or negatives I have done is with my JOBO. Its in storage right now however, as soon as I can make some room I plan to set it up again. Hope is still works.
I used to get it from Chang's Photo Supply (Los Angles) from its Hayward (Bay Area) warehouse. I believe the Hayward warehouse is long gone. Chang's web site is also gone indicating its business is possibly gone too. Chang's Photo Supply was a fairly high volume wholesaler for minilabs in California. Now I do not know where to get C-41 and E-6 chemicals any more. I am not looking for small sized packages. I am looking for packages like 5 gallon, 10Lx4 or even 25 gallon developer (LORR replenisher in particular). Adoroma only has the 5 gallon regular C-41 developer. It is a little small and not LORR. I would rather buy from a minilab supplier in Northern California. Does anyone know if there is such a supplier around here?
Kodak's 2004 catalog L9 chemicals, paper, etc inc prices if anyone is interested.
Good descriptions and usage of the various additives as well.
That Kodak link does not work. PDF no longer on their server.
worked for me.
