    Pushing C41/E6 Times

    None of the directions I have with the chemicals have any information on the timing increases for pushing the film, I was just wondering if anyone out there does this themselves as well, and how long I should be running everything for each additional stop.

    There are plenty of Push process times available. I regularly push processed E6 from it's introduction only the first dev time changes, unlike previous versions the Ektachrome process.

    C41 is no different, I do have times but it's late at night here so I'll not disturb those sleeping

    Generally, if I remember correctly,

    E6: 1 stop: FD + 2'00
    2 stops: FD + 5'30

    Kodak E6 single-use kit instructions also mention to add 1 minute to CD when pushing.

    C-41: 1 stop: Developer + 0'30
    More than 1 stop not recommended...

    But this is a subject where you need testing for your particular shooting situation and personal taste more then ever.
