    Report: Kodak discontinuing E-6 chemicals

    Saw this today via Toronto Image Works on twitter, who announced they will no longer process E-6. Kodak is said to be discontinuing E-6 chemicals.

    Also I apologize if this is old news. First I had heard of it and I didn't turn up any other threads on APUG.

    Kodak quit making E-6 film a couple years ago, so it should be no surprise if they quit making the processing chemicals. Given that Fuji is the only manufacturer of E-6 film in the world now, I would think it would be better to use Fuji chemicals since you're using Fuji film.

    Kodak's actual chemistry has been made by Champion for several years already, correct? *If* true, the announcement needn't mean anything about Champion's production for other customers like Arista. (I don't know if they actually make the Arista E-6 kits, but the point is, "not sold through Kodak any more" is not the same as "not made any more by the original source".)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Oh man...it's a good thing I started developing at home. There's several companies making E-6 kits. I used to get my stuff done at Toronto Imageworks...great place too.

    You are right about the availability of E-6 chemicals.

    There are still few sources doing it and as far as I am concerned, one of these sources is still supplying me wit these kits.

    Film can be tested; not time. Stop talking and start shooting...
