I can tell just by looking at the negative side by side with a roll I developed in January this year (with the Fuji kit) that there is a lot of color missing from the recent Rollei developed rolls. I'll try calling Freestyle as well. It's a bit unfortunate actually, because I called them right after I got the kits in April because of leakage from another bottle (the bleach was overfilled), and they promptly sent a replacement.
