Tetanol E-6 Kit
Getting a Jobo ATL2-Plus delivered any day now. Can't decide what E6 chemistry to use. I have heard several times to "only use Kodak". I can do that, but...it will be pretty darn expensive to get the chemicals shipped up here to Alaska. Or at least a big hassle having someone else ship them to me.
I see the Tetanol kit at B&H does not have a hazmat fee on the shipping, so would be considerably cheaper.
How does the Tetanol 6 step kit stack up to the Kodak chemistry? If it matters, for now I'm shooting 35mm Kodak E100GX, and Elite Chrome 100.
I have an email in to Kodak right now, asking them about a local distributor, but I couldn't find one, so not sure what they're going to tell me.
I use Tetenal all the time, and it works very well for me.
I have not used Kodak, so I can not compare, but I don't think it would make such a big difference - these are standardised processes, as far as I understand.
I keep the working solutions in bottles that contain no air, and it lasts for about 5-6 weeks without deterioration - enough time to shoot and develop the 12 films I get out of one litre.
Hope that helps
I use Tetenal E-6 with a ATL 1000 with no problems. I develop 4x5, 120 and the occassional 35mm. I mix 1 liter at a time and use it up within a month.
