I really think going forward the idea for chemical suppliers is to package stuff smaller for the home darkroom worker, similar to the way Ilford does for B&W. No reason why they can't make a 1L or even ½L kits. There is only 1 lab left that does film developing within about 100km of where I live.
    It was because of this I ordered the powder 1L kit from B&H. $20 bucks and they made shipping and duties easy.
    I have read the Flexcolor four step kit is best, but shipping was getting very expensive, and I couldn't find out for sure if it'd make it across boarder.

    Champion photo chemicals

    Champion photo chemicals make C-41 ktis, that are generally fairly large, but they are dirt cheap and you can break up the kits as the stock stuff lasts pretty much forever.

    Champion = Kodak

    I am pretty sure Champion makes the flexicolour c41 chemistry for Kodak, or so I've read in many places.

    Champion are one of the creditors that are owed large amounts of money by Kodak, according to the bankruptcy filing.

    Best thing to do is to call them from their contact page and see if there is a local dealer near you.

    The Kodak C41 chemistry in the sticky post can be ordered by any dealer selling Kodak products, or shoot Photo Central in Winnipeg an email, they can get it for you. No cross border shipping hassles.

    Trebla is also a source for Kodak C41 kits. This company was founded by a group of former EK Engineers who worked from the original formulas to come up with their kits.
