    That is the entire kit for C41 processing using Kodak chemistry. I have several of them here and they are reasonably cost effective when you consider the many alternatives.

    Flexicolor is excellent. In fact I would say that's the ideal developer to get.

    Given the options to build what you need from bits and pieces, large quantities of either Kodak or Fuji Developer Replenisher + Starter are inexpensive.

    You just have to solve your bleach and fix issues which are expensive in large quantities in some cases. I use the Kodak E-6 fixer. Which is very inexpensive.

    As for bleach? Well I guess you could split Flexicolor Bleach III with someone, and also get the bleach regenerator, otherwise other options abound, which are going to better than Tetenal kit with blix imho from having used both.


    There are developer differences too... Fuji say their developer ideal pH is 10.02 for example for woring/seasoned solution. Kodak says theirs is 10.03.. very close actually. Can't remember what Tetenal is. Thought I had the values for others sitting here somewhere and that they were higher..

    So they break up the larger bulk packages and package it as a complete 1L kit?

    PE are you saying that is a "Kit" with bleach III and some type fixer?

    It is mislabeled if it is.

    I hope they are selling those considering how much bellyaching went on before it was introduced.

    It is indeed mislabeled. It is the entire kit with Developer, Starter, Bleach III, Fixer, and Final Rinse. I have used one and I have 2 more here!

    Wow, this is valuable info.
    Most are scoffing at the price because they are reading the description.

    I bet they sell a lot more if they corrected it considering how hard Bleach is to source.

    Do you remember capacities for that 1L kit offhand? ? ?

    Check the Kodak web site for information on capacity.

    The bleach can be regenerated.

    Regenerator is cheap if you can get it - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...leach_III.html

    Developer is cheap - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...plenisher.html

    It doesn't say it's LORR, so replenishment is generally 50 to 70mL per roll, depending upon roll type and length, and the actual film used, LORR is half that.
