    Recommendations of books on how to make C-41 chemistry?

    Anyone have any recommendations on books that give directions or formulae for C-41 developer chemicals?

    There is a word document floating around full of colour formulae, there is a few C-41 recipes on here as well in the articles section I think.

    I home brew my c-41, and use the Dignan most often. I dug up a bunch of sources about 6 years ago as the newsgroups that once discussed this stuff were drying up, and collated them into a single file for comparison and collation. The best source was a guy, Ron Speirs, now suspect as being departed. Maxwell Sanford (MTS here) is also a good source. He has sent me files on his notes, but alas cannot locate them digiatlly at the moment.

    These are not Flexicolor formulae, and there are deviations on the ingredients from the 'official' mix. Try them and then run controls against commenrcially produced c-41 and see if you like what home brew can do for you before comitting important projects to it.

    Here is one I've hosted on my google documents that someone emailed me a while back (includes C-41, E-6, RA-4, older processes and random stuffs) - http://docs.google.com/View?id=dhb94mck_31f8z5d5c7

    Here is the accompanying processing time document that was also sent - http://docs.google.com/View?id=dhb94mck_32vc6d7h68

    If anyone wants to be invited to a sharing of editing a google document to collate and compile colour procesing and formula information, let me know.
