That's what I do with the Fuji kit, but Fuji provides a list of 5 times (3:15, 3:18, 3:23, 3:28, 3:38) for each 20% of the developer's nominal (16 rolls/L, half that for ISO400+) capacity.
Great. i feel pretty confident about starting now. Will get into it early next week after I've done my tax. I'll use a 2 roll Paterson 600ml tank and work through some 120 from the Diana, some 45 sheets wrapped around the inside of the tank (do this all the time with B&W), and some 35mm. will keep an eye on the results and increase the time slightly if it seems necessary. The Jobo kit gives 3.5 min as the start time for dev so I should be safe to add about the same amounts of time for every 20% of capacity. Thanks for the help, Polyglot.
I did some C-41 processing a couple of weeks ago - got through two rolls of 35mm, about eight of 120 and half a dozen sheets of 4x5. By chance I had two very similar exposures of 4x5 so I had one sheet done by a good quality dip and dunk pro lab as a reference for my processing. As can be seen they are close enough to identical. The processing was simple enough, although a bit frantic with the primitive method of temperature stability (hot water in a 20 liter tank.) Looks like I'll be teaming up with a friend to split the cost of a 5L Jobo liquid kit for the next phase.
So, I recently shot quite a few rolls of colour neg in a Diana, and had the thought that I would like to process it myself rather than take it to a lab. I'm experienced with B&W processing, and also with mixing B&W dev powders.
The obvious thing to do is to buy a Tetenal kit from Vanbar, however when I spoke to them last week I was told these are out of stock and not expected back for 3 to 6 months. I'm reasonably patient, but that's a long time to wait to see my photos.
I've tried searching ebay but can't find any local sellers. There is someone in the UK selling it, but the $40 local kit will end up being about $70. Freestyle stock a few C41 devs but all the liquids can't be sent internationally. There is a Unicolor powder kit for $20, but regular shipping is about $40, or there is the FIMS shipping for about $20 but I've heard reports of that taking a couple of months.
I really didn't think it would be this hard.
The bleach is pricey, but I suppose it should last a fair while, and the other items seem reasonable.
I'm looking for advice or comments on this, particularly in regards to someone who want to do this in Australia right now, thanks.
In future want me to just give you some chemistry to do it?
