    Tetenal chemistry is also available at Macodirect.de

    They have
    E-6 three-bath kit (two sizes, 1 litre and 5 litres). Uses blix;
    C-41 "Rapid kit" (two sizes, 1 litre and 5 litres). Uses blix;
    RA-4 kit, 5 litres.
    There's also a low formaline stabilizer, suitable for E-6 and C-41.

    Depending on availability, the same chemistry can be ordered in Italy at Western Photo:

    Shipping from Germany to Italy and within Italy was carried normally, did not involve any "hazardous material" complication.

    PS for those interested, Western Photo also has the Ilfochrome paper developer:

    As has been posted before by myself and others, developers will last a lot longer if stored properly. If stored in glass jars ( I use canning jars) filled to the top and tightly sealed, developers can last years and only slightly change color. I have both C-41 and RA-4 developers I mixed in 2008 that are still giving excellent results. Rather than mix from concentrates as I need developer, I mix a whole batch and store it away.

    So did anyone get a chance to try the Flexicolor 2L kit? Is it SM?

    What 2 liter kit?

    Did millions of people suddenly disappear? This may have an answer.

    Someone posted here that some store in Montreal had some Flexicolour 2L kits in stock. I didn't even know such kits existed. The only small Kodak Kit I've ever heard of was the Formulary 1L kit. If the rumour is true, then this would be the first time small-kit Kodak C-41 chemistry would be commerically available in Canada. (There are some suppliers who sell it in bulk but the cost doesn't justify the volume of film some of us are shooting, and due to border hazmat costs, we are forced to use blix kits for the most part).

    That's why I was asking if somebody could verify is such kit even exists, and the pricing. It would be really nice to know if this is true, or if it's just a rumour.

    Splitting the Kodak Chemistry

    Some time ago someone posted a file from Ian Mazursky at PrePress Express about splitting either the Kodak E6 or the C41 chems, I cannot remember which one. I've been in touch with him off and on over the months, and he has done us all a service by gathering all the details into two spreadsheets - one for C41 and one for E6 - about how to split the dizzying array of Kodak chemicals into useful quantities. According to Ian this has been reviewed by Kodak and given the green light.

    Mind you this is not how to get a 1L or 2L kit. It's the bulk stuff they sell now, which is a boatload of chemistry to buy. This is instructions on how to actually use the stuff in small quantities once you figure out a place that will sell it and ship it to you. And no comment about whether the ratios work for other vendor's chemicals. Don't count on it.

    The two spreadsheets are on Ian's download page here: http://www.prepressexpress.com/pages...downloads.html

    They are about halfway down under the photography tag.

    The direct links are:

    Another noob question, what is the difference between developer and developer/replenisher?

    They are the same thing. As the developer becomes depleted you pour out part and replenish it with fresh.

    The problem is that this only works right if you have a high volume line running. Therefore all the confusion over the years about using the chemicals "one shot" rather than replenished.

    The spreadsheet links I posted are *NOT* for replenished use.

    The "starter" is what makes the "brand new" developer appear that it has been used and replenished.
