    Tetenal C-41 Press Kit

    I recently tried the C-41 "Press" kit from Tetenal. I needed an alternative from Flexicolor, as Kodak is no longer selling the kit for home use.

    I've been using a Press Kit lately and also enjoy it though like you I have fun imagining a press photographer mixing up and using this stuff in a hotel bathroom somewhere. Must have been fun times! Fun reading stories about photographers going to great lengths to get important rolls out of the country too, going to extremes at times to make sure they got their photos out. Nowadays you'd just send your digital images via mobile or satellite phone of course, no need to smuggle them out.

    Don't cause fibrillation like that! ;D
    You can still get the Flexi developer in 5 gallon size which in my standard and quite a good deal at around 30usd plus shipping from Adorama.
    I realize it's only a matter of time for the 5 gallon size also.

    I miss them.

    Very nice write-ups, both of you. ^__^

    I've just recently purchased a 1L kit of Tetanal Press C-41 and intend on using it to process 8x10 sheet film. So far, all my tests with home-processing C-41 have been a success; even though the chems were super old.

    Thanks
    We seem to have it better here in Europe, what with the Fuji Hunt kits, Tetenal kits etc. Have you tried ringing Fuji Hunt America? they may import the kits if demand is judged to be there. Ag photographic has an excellent range of kits including the full C41 and E6:

    He might ship to the States or Canada, if not I think Robert Vonk does.

    Thanks Mark...

    We have one (1!) supplier in all of the USA that sells the Rollei Digibase kits. And they are out of stock until March!

    That's the kit I really want to try next.
