    When I take my color neg film to the local mini lab, I can pick up the processed film in Ten minutes. Now I know that that you can't do "real" C41, dry to dry, in Ten minutes. I have to assume that they make some compromises in favor of a fast turn around.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Usually in the box the kit comes in.
    I've noted each major brand has minor differences in times for the bleach and/or fix, the developer is usually at 3:15. If you can follow directions for B&W then C41 is falling of the log simple.

    I have many and sundry copies. When I get a chance, I'll copy/ something - one of them and post it. It is no more difficult than black and white.

    Sure. Using modern C-41 with combined bleach and fix its 195 seconds Dev, 3 1/2 min. BLIX, 3 min. wash or 9 min. 45 secs. and then into the dryer. The C-41 RA (Rapid Acess) process is 8 1/2 min. Since I don't think you are running a stopwatch that 10 min. seems quite doable..

    We need more people in the Brotherhood. I hope your first print session is as exciting as your first film (it will be, don't worry)! Incidentally, if Darth Vader had a personal photographer, would his name be Dar-Kroom?
    Apologies for the crap pun, warmest regards, BLIGHTY

    Hope you don't mind if I jump in here on this one, first of all congratulations on your first roll!! Secondly I didn't see any reply to the color development question, it isn't that difficult. I remember my first c-41 roll I was all kinds of nervous, but alll you have to do is keep it all in the correct temperature, and keep the bleach and fixer from the developer, oh and faithful agitation for that 3'15" and you are in business. I processed my first c-41 roll in the kitchen, had to be careful of the staining of the counter. Anyway I hope this lends some help in you development quests. Happy processing!

    Of course don't forget E-6 that is a reward all its own.

    It was magic the first time I did it 30 years ago and it's still magic today.

    Have fun.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.
