Capacity of Kodak Flexicolor (C41) chemicals
I appreciate that there have been numerous posts about C41 home developing in the recent past, but I have not been able to find people's experiences with the number of rolls of 120 (or 135) film that can be developed using Kodak chemicals. I must confess that I have recently used the Tetenal powders (which uses a blix) and have been happy with the results; but there have been many posts about the superiority of separate bleach and fix and I am investigating whether this would be a good approach for me.
There seem to be two manufacturers of small batches of non-blix C41 chemicals for home use: the Rollei kit and the repackaged Kodak chemicals from Photographic Formulary. The latter costs $20+ for a 1L kit. Unfortunately, the Kodak docs on developing C41 in small tanks recommend only 2 rolls of 120 film per liter. This comes to $10+ per roll for processing, not a very economical approach. The Rollei kit seems to have a larger capacity.
I would be interested in people's experiences with the capacities of non-blix kits (particularly Kodak). Thanks.
