    Nope... I'm talkin American here. Oh yes, and the Color should be amber. Out here in the weeds, we just usually call it a half gallon jug.

    So translating to "American" ...

    You didn't mean the 1.75 ml (1.75 millilitres = about 0.6 ounces) you put in your very helpful original post.

    You meant 1.75 litres (about 60 ounces, which is close to a half gallon).

    Speaking of course of US fluid ounces, and US gallons.

    Right! I missed that you meant I had typed ml instead of L. I sometimes jump at an opportunity to lip off. Such is the case here.

    Why not merge this with the existing C41 sticky thread? No sense having 2.

    Two very different postings in content and time. And the firstest is now out of date. Also, as we've seen, as a post goes long in time, a lot of barely relevant comments.

    C-41 Processing Options 1Q 2013

    For those of you that live in Canada you can get Arista and Tetenal chemicals from Beau Photo in Vancouver (www.beauphoto.com). This was from an email with them in Dec 2012:

    Tetenal E6 1L $69.70
    Tetenal E6 5L $113.96
    Tetenal C-41 1L $46.51
    Tetenal C-41 5L $78.13
    Arista E6 1 QT $44.29
    Arista C-41 QT $53.78

    All prices in CAD.

    They started offering these kits as of October 2012. That's great news for Canada considering the options prior to this were pretty non-existent here. I still buy my Tetenal E6 5L kits from Germany at www.fotoimpex.de/shopen/. It's still cheaper even with shipping. However I will buy my Tetenal C41 5L kits from Beau Photo from now on since those are cheaper than Germany.

    no

    The other thread is very much up to date. A 2nd sticky on the same topic dilutes things. Merge this and add to the end, and just read from the end of the thread if it bugs you. The other thread was not only much more complete, but had data from long-time C41 users rather than newbies and people who don't seem to have a complete grasp of the process and options. Any thread, will obviously get out of date, but that doesn't invalidate the data contained within. no sense rewriting/rehashing the same thing in multiple threads as time goes on. That's pointless and wasted effort.

    Any idea which of these kits lasts the longest?
    For somebody who only shoots 1-2 rolls a month, chemistry-longevity will determine cost per roll.

IIRC, that sucks up the CD-4 developer in its entirety and you will have various amounts of the other chemicals left over. So, let's call it $2/roll with no fixer, bleach, or stabilizer.
    I beg to disagree with this statement. CD4 is about $25 for 100g. There are about 5g/L of developer, so 100g makes almost 20 liters. Each liter should be good for at least 5 or 6 36 exp 35mm rolls, so 100g CD4 would be enough for close to 120 rolls. The only other relatively expensive chemical in C41 developer is hydroxylamine sulfate, of which 2g/L is used. I would guesstimate the developer only cost at closer to 50 cents a roll than $2 if mixing it yourself. Maybe you meant to say $45 for 100 rolls, not $100 for 45 rolls?

    And I am sure you could get a lot more than 5 or 6 rolls per liter. I just stop there because home brewed developer is cheap and there is no need to be too frugal, especially with important images.

    With a Fuji account one can buy direct , this is how we do it in very small batches and run in our Jobo. We do this for personal
    film only and do not offer it as a service.
    Therefore any camera store in NA with a Fuji account can get it for you.
    Just another option maybe not open to some but ok for others.
