    I'm afraid the Kodak rep got it wrong. I have a spool of 100D (code 5285, off the top of my head) and it definitely does not have a remjet backing. Not only have I seen the film, but I've used it and my lab (The Lighthouse Lab in Sydney) has processed it for me with no ill effects.

    I remember when I was researching before I bought it that I found a reference in Kodak literature to the effect that it had no remjet, but I don't have time to try and find it again...

    the hairdye treatment

    for my friend in turkey: to my great fortune i found a spool of undeveloped ektachrome! so i tried it out in 6ml/10oz water hairdye for 40 min at 70 F with minimal stirring, washed, then fixed washed and final rinse and it works! not the best scan (my scanner is horrible) some color information is evident. also as for b&w I took some snaps on old Valca 6 Din Ortho (f5.8/15secs) and developed that in 10ml h20 and 10ml hairdye for 15min at 70 F and it works, but very slowly as my negs were thin & underdeveloped and needed to be scanned at lowest brightness.

    Yurisrey ,

    You are one great experimenter and I liked your Empire States Building pictures series very much. Do hairdye mix in to the water homogene ? Why there are blemishes on the negatives ? Empire States pictures looks like cyanotype. Thank you again.

    hi umut! thanks! the hairdye mixes quite well with water. suprisingly, there weren't any blemishes. ji recommend to wear arm-length gloves because the ones included in hairdye kits are okay, but i did get some dye on my forearm.

    Thank you!

    I was suspecting this by myself too, since I couldn't find any information about rem-jet backing in E6 movie films.

    Now I think this is cleared and Mr. Kodak was wrong, OMG .
