    Final development rinse question

    Hello all,
    I am using the tetenal c-41 kit and it is working very well. I do have a question though. After you run the film through the final stabilizer bath, is that it or are you supposed to then flush the film with running water after that? Likewise, while using photo-flo as the last bath in the Black and White process, do you then rinse the film in water again? Thanks for any help.

    Do not rinse the film after the final stabilizer. It contains chemicals to protect the film and dyes from microbial attack and you'll wash them out. If you rinse the film, you must re-stabilize.

    Same goes for Photo-flo, although it's not as critical (B&W film needs no protection). If you wash B&W film after treatment in photo-flo solution, you'll lose all the benefits of using it. It's designed to be used as the final bath before drying to prevent water marks.
