    What is a C print?

    I'm letting my ignorance flop out on the table here. I hear mention of these all the time but I don't know what they are. Can someone tell me? How is the process different from others and why don't people like them?

    Color print developed by the C41 process.

    Yeah, like just now. It's a color print, usually processed by the RA-4 process, from a negative, usually processed by the C-41 process.

    The "C" stands for Chromogenic.

    a lot of digital printers now use "C-Print" to describe their digital output, removing all description that it had anything to do with digital whatsoever

    Are you sure about this?

    Cibachrome - Now Ilfochrome - is considered to be a classic direct positive "C " print, and the chemistry for that is either "P3 or P30". Kodak Radiance is another "direct positive" - process "R3/ R3000." I'm not familiar with Fujichrome papers.

    "C41" is negative color FILM chemistry. Unless I've been confused into buying additional chemistry through deliberate mislabeling, these are all not the same.

    Ilford "P30" is the only chemistry I'm really - and deliberately- afraid of. I think that the "nasitiness" of this chemistry and its unique disposal techniques is the real reason for the demise of Ilfochrome. Oh, boy - that little packet that says, "Cut this packet open and, holding the edges together, immerse the cut edges under the surface of the liquid, taking precautions to prevent any dust from escaping into the air. Mix *ONLY* in an area with plentiful ventilation".
    Carpe erratum!!

    LOL...well yeah, could be. Back when I was doing color development both prints and film, it seemed the chemistry was the same, but that was more than 20 years ago, so it could have changed names by now. In essence, is a color print developed in color chemistry, as opposed to and ink jet print.

    I guess a "C-Print" could now stand for a CR^P Print!
