Anyone develop c41 at home? I want to shoot some colour and wouldn;t mind having a crack at developing it at home but wondering how people keep everything at the right temperature? I'm guessing a proper water bath is the best way but I've really no more room for big bits of kit so was wondering if I'd get away with an aquarium heater in a bucket type of solution?

Jobo CPE2 would be ideal. It's somewhat temperature sensitive, but if you're scanning then a lot of colour variations can be taken care of.

Have you looked at the cost of chemicals? A Jobo is rotary and uses the chemicals considerably more efficiently. It also give you consistent results, but kitchen sink is possible if you're scanning and pay attention.

Bowl of hot water does it for me...



(Sorry it's long and rambling - I asked the guy who filmed it if I could edit it down, he said no)

Buy a picnic cooler, a proper color dev thermometer and 3 1 litre glass Winchester bottles. Mix up the chemicals and store them in the bottles. When you come to do some development just put a load of hot water (i just use water from the hot tap as mine comes out about 42 degrees) in the cooler, put the bottles in and then the lid and wait. Take periodic readings until it's about 39 degrees then decant into plastic measuring jugs (start with the Blix as this has a higher tolerance, -/+ 3 degrees normally) and start developing. You can put the plastic film container into the hot water in between inversions but i dont find the need as the temp will stay hot enough fr the 3 mins it takes to develop.

I always use Tetenal’s Colortec C41 kit.

A brewing thermometer is much cheaper (about a fiver) than a "photographic" thermometer and plenty accurate enough

You should find Jobo colour thermometers for reasonable money on ebay. I've found them better than any of the other thermometers. That said I'm probably working at a higher degree of accuracy.
I know there are alternative solutions, but I suggest the CPE2 as it is extremely efficient with the chemicals - which are a big cost

My setup is primarily for E6 - which I believe needs a lot more control (E6 you can't really fix with post process if you intend to project).

At a time when most news about film photography is not positive it's welcome to hear that Ferrania is going to relaunch and produce new films. Seems likely it will include 35mm and 120.

No, this is a thread for photography. Specifically photography undertaken through the medium of film rather than digital. Your 'films' do not belong here.

No, and if I see much more of this you'll find you have even more restrictions; not fewer.

Anyone interested in film probably already knows this but Kodak have announced they are (re)introducing Ektachrome 100.

The consumer version of this, Elite Chrome 100, was always my favourite slide film.
