    Flexicolor list question. Help me out plz!

    Hi,

    You've probably heard this question so many times but I'm still confused even though I did search and read many threads.

    I process about 10 sheets of 4x5 portra and 3 rolls of 120 portra a week with my JOBO CPE-2. I've been using the tetenal c-41 from BH and looking to save some money on chemistry. Help me out plz!


    1. Am I going to save money if I get the flexicolor?

    2. Do I get these developer starter and the developer replenisher?

    Kodak Flexicolor Developer / Starter.
    $7.99
    Kodak Flexicolor Developer / Replenisher, 5-gallons. $34.95

    3. Where do I get the bleach and fixer?

    4. I live in New York. Is there a website where I can purchase all developer starter, replenisher, bleach and fixer?



    Many thanks in advance,

    Www.pfsny.com also sells all the chemicals you need, and they ship by weight without hazmat charges.

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Have a look at www.ag-photographic.co.uk. Based in Birminham, England. Their on-line catalog lists several C41 developers and I KNOW they will ship to the USA. Their prices are quite reasonable in UK but I don't know about the shipping costs. But these should be off set with a reduction of 20% which is the UK tax before shipping.

    Trebla offers C41 and RA4 chemistry: http://cpacimaging.com/photomain.asp

    This is a group of former EK engineers that have duplicated the EK stuff.

    Ok...Last check. Here is my pfsny.com cart and the total is $276 including shipping.
    Does anyone know how much I'm saving by doing this?

    That is the same as what I got when I first started in C-41, I processed enough film to make it about $0.95 per roll if I remember correctly. Where I lived at the time it cost $4.50 to have it processed at a pro lab. I use a Jobo to minimize the quantity of liquid needed and I use the bleach twice before discarding.

    Greg, with regeneration you can use bleach way more than that. I am on my 6th or 7th go-round on the same 5L of blaeach, regenerating each time, and negs still looks great.
