    Well, its an all liquid kit.

    It is a 3 bath (dev, bleach, fix) kit.

    It has a very long shelve life (12-24 months stock concentrate, and 6-8 weeks, or more mixed working solution dev, and 6 months mixed working solution bleach/fix).

    Its cheaper per roll then some of the powder stuff (but thats not really the same kind of product).

    Its readily available.

    Seems to me it's aimed at those in the USA who would like the Fuji or Rollei kits without having to pay international shipping. That ought to be a decent market segment judging by the quantity of whingeing here on APUG about yanks having to pay shipping like the rest of the world does!

    I note you have an error on your product page though, it says "Capacity 5L: 50-80 rolls of 35/120 or 100-160 sheets of 4X5". Actually it should do 200 to 320 sheets of 4x5 since those are only 20 sq.in each compared to the 80 sq.in in a 135/36 or 120 roll.

    We will look into canada shipping, though, this will have to travel via UPS, making the shipping + customs fee to canada prohibitive.

    If you are close to the border, we can ship this to a UPS/Fedex store in the US, for you to pick up.

    We are working on a 6 bath E-6 5L kit, hopefully to be ready for Q1 2014.

    Formalin is bad for you and even worse for the environment, which is why it is no longer used in stabilizer baths for a long long time. As PE noted a while back on another thread, formalin is a must have component in the re-exposure bath, which our kit will have.

    When the developer is used as one shot, in a rotary process, the minimum tank capacity required per sheet or roll film (about 50ml and 100ml respectively) gives us the number posted.

    If Dev is reused (totally possible with this kit), capacity can be doubled as you note and this info is included in the instructions provided with the kit .
