Kodak 5219 movie film in c41
I got ahold of some 5219 from work and loaded it
into a bulk cartridge. Developed normally using a Tetenal
kit. The images are cool, as expected; the Kodak web site recommends
a Wratten 85 filter (daylight warming) which I didn't have. The
adjusted image is a quick digital warming/contrast of the
scan. I was a little worried about the rem-jet backing but decided
to ignore it and use the chemicals one-shot; after the blix 90% of
it was already gone and the rest came off easily with running water.
I know, ECN2, etc., well this was primarily for amusement value...
Processing ECN movie film.
Using lots of color movie film ends I've come up with two processes.....High contrast/saturated color and low contrast/muted color. Both processes will deliver very nice reproduction using Kodak Portra III paper. ( It's what I got)..
Develop in C-41 at 85 degrees F for three minutes, Bold and contrasty but nice.
Develop in RA-4 at 95 degrees F for three minutes for smooth lower contrast and muted color.
Using FOUR, 1 minute rinses (at same temperature), after the developer will effectively remove all traces of remjet coating.
The Kodak 500D and Fuji 64D have amazing exposure lattitude. I've used indexes as high as 32,000 with interesting, if not beautiful results. Experiment and enjoy!
