    you also need Kodak C41 developer starter, which they don't carry. Available from Adorama:
    http://www.adorama.com/KKFCDS.html

    Note: unique is probably not the cheapest place to get this stuff, and some places carry it in smaller amounts (particularly the bleach). Also, shop around as some places charge hazmat shipping to ship this stuff, and some don't.

    Ed, what type is this you're suggesting? RA, LORR or SM? Also, what's the second item? The Stab/Replenisher? I only knew you needed developer, bleach, fix, and stabilizer. Is that the stabilizer?

    Also, if not unique, where would you get the chemistry? What places are the most affordable?

    Thanks.

    No, the kit includes a number of three bottle sets, EACH of which makes two liters. I have to check my packaging (I'm not at home) but it is at least five sets -- maybe more. A quick call to PDI would no doubt confirm. Also, Kodak changes their packaging so often that you have to check for the latest configuration.

    I'm ready to purchase Kodak Flexicolor (C-41) chemistry. After much deliberation and research, I've selected the following items (developer only; I have bleach and fix for now):

    Starter (1 qt. concentrate):
    http://www.uniquephoto.com/product/k...5-gal-8485153/

    Replenisher (makes 5 L):
    http://www.uniquephoto.com/product/c...-0608-8231672/

    This makes five liters of replenisher. When I add the starter, I'm expecting slightly more than five liters of working solution. I have a mess of 300ml and 500ml bottles that I plan to fill to capacity. I intend to use the developer one-shot.

    Am I missing something, or does this sound like a feasible plan?

    Mario -

    The kind I preferred is the straight C-41, it has no suffix. (e.g. not RA, LORR or SM).

    Basically I would shop around to see who has it the cheapest, with shipping. some charge hazmat for shipping which ups the final cost. Adorama, B&H, minilab supply, Pakor, are all places I have used or would use. There's others too of course, Unique is certainly a valid vendor.

    This awesome! I just emailed them to see if they will be making an E-6 kit version.

    So, taking Ed’s suggestions of places to get this stuff, I checked the websites to see who carried C41 chemistry. Pakor seemed the best place, so I contacted them for a price quote. Initially this is what they quoted:



    Delivered to San Francisco, CA would cost $129.16 for a grand total of $454.13.

    I then inquired about their SM chemistry and this is what they quoted:



    Delivered to San Francisco, CA would cost $136.74 for a grand total of $551.20.

    Do I really need SM chemistry? Since I’m only an occasional user, not a lab? (I was trying to find the Kodak publication where they compare the different kinds of C41 chemistry there are but I could not find it.) Are the prices ok or are they too much?

    Another question I have, unmixed, how long do these solutions last? As long as they are stored properly in a damp, dark place, for example, do they last a long time or just a few months? Also, do I have to worry about oxidation with the unmixed chemistry or is that a problem only arising once the chemistry has been mixed (i.e., “working/stock solution”)?

    Ed, so, according to the Pakor site, if you used the "Straight C41," as you call it, then that would leave this:




    Is that right? I, or someone else, would need to get price quotes for those. Also, why do you prefer that over the other ones (RA, LORR, SM)?

    And what are this for?

    The puzzling thing about this kit is that it no longer consists of stock- but working-solutions.
