    My first attempt at developing E6 :)

    So the past few days I've been developing my own E6, and am really enjoying it.

    I thought I'd share links to sample images, see if you guys have any pointers, suggestions, or if I'm dead on

    I'm using a Kodak E6 5l kit, with a Jobo CPE2 (no lift) processor.

    Great shots! I'm with you, I just started developing E-6 a month ago with my Jobo CPP-2, the results are amazing - I so enjoy looking at a good piece of chrome!

    Looks like you are spot on lordvader! E6 isn't really as hard as it sounds. I've found it is actually much easier than B&W because it is a standard, well worn process which doesn't vary by film. Only takes more time, but with a larger tank you can batch films together and get them done in less time.

    If you can do B&W you can do E-6, the hardest part is getting the chemicals up to temp. Once you get the temp up and holding it will hold long enough to do the developing. For me at least E-6 has not been all that touchy about temp as I had been lead to believe.

    Thanks for the comments

    I agree, the fact that E6 is a standard makes it very easy, it's just time consuming, with the process taking me a little over 2 hours (warmup time, process, and hanging up to dry). It seems to take longer than B&W to dry, especially now that we've got cold weather, so drying space is limited

    Now I need to rejig my operations so I can do more film per go. I'm currently using 270ml of chemistry (chem goes in beakers, water goes in bottles), but to do more, need to rethink my plan of attack (plus a second water bath !).

    This is very nice, where did you buy the Kodak 5L kit?
    Using film since before it was hip.
