    I have not a clue, the lack of information from Rollei and user experiences of the stuff is my reason starting this thread. I want to know more, though i will order a small kit out of curiosity.

    There is not a lot of informations concerning this chemistry yet, because the product has just been released on the market.

    For example, I just finished the translation of the user manual in french, last days. Will be available in France so soon.

    For US, Freestyle will distribute for sure (I saw parcels marked freestyle with C41 digibase inside )

    And this chemistry was elaborated in cooperation with fuji guys, from netherlands, yes.

    I wonder why more maskless films haven't appeared. I certainly would have use for them (and not only because of that technology that starts with an 's' but for wholly analogue purposes as well). There could be mask-emulating filters for those who want to do ra4 from them (and of course it'd also be extremely easy to generate such a mask). Anyway, just surprised that Rollei are the only ones in this game.

    NEW: Important notice on the "EXCLUSIVE CHARACTERISTIC" of this kit: The packaging used by MACO permits transportation according to IATA rules, of the photochemistry via air freight, or as hand luggage. A "surface-mail" permission is not required, as it is unchanged for all competitive products. The transport restriction is for the maximum up to 5 litres of ROLLEI Digibase C-41 chemistry, per single box.

    There is a reason for the mask. Not only for RA4 (Remember, scanners been here with us from before C41 was made)

    Thank you Aurelien. That explains why there are so few users writing about it, it is a new product. But at the same time making it even more strange that Rollei do not have any info what so ever at their site.

    Have you used it and if you have, could you share your thoughts about it?

    It was a statement by Maco about refilling Fuji C-41 chemistries from larger batches.


    Though, at the moment they are offering as well the Rollei C-41 chemistry as well the Fuji C-41 5-L kit.

    I have used it for many many months. This is now the product i will use in the future for 99% of my colourwork. With a new colourchecker every year from X-rite and Kodak Portra 160 NC and Ektar films i can get all that i want, and more. I will still use E6 for some jobs where the colour-and texture-palette has to be different. I will make a Video soon of me shooting a modell, developing the film in Digibase and post-prod.
