    I have been using Kodak's RA-4 chemicals in trays at room temperature without any problems, and the prints look great; simply extend the development and bleach times to two minutes. Definitely a much cheaper way to go than the room temperature kits, and the chemicals seem to last a lot longer in an open tray than the 4 hours and 15 8x10's Kodak states.

    Sorry to revive this thread, but I need some info. I see it mentioned here that the starter isn't necessary when using kodak chemistry. Is this true? Would I be fine just purchasing

    ?

    Do I need a stop bath, and if I do, can I just use water?

    Thanks, Nate.

    Yes, that is the stuff. I just use dilute white vinegar, as I don't know if the indicator in Kodak's product is compatible with the process. Just be very consistent in agitation and temp control.

    There are other threads on this. I use Kodak indicator stop bath after the developer, and then a water rinse before the bleach/fix. I use separate mixes of stop bath for colour and b&w, just in case some of the carry-over of colour developer might react with b&w papers.
