It's here! After many years, The Film Photography Podcast gang has finally discovered the JOY of home processing our color C-41 film. We're happy to offer this kit to you!
Develop Color Negatives (C-41), Color Motion Picture Film (ECN-2) or Color Slide Film (Cross Processing to Produce a Negative)
The kit claims you can process 8 rolls of film but FPP Guy Mark Dalzell has s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d this kit to develop 20+ rolls!!!
You will need the basic darkroom tools - tank, beakers, etc. to develop your color film. If you're new to home developing check out our blog WHAT STUFF DO I NEED to see. well, what stuff you need. Once developed you will need a scanner to scan your newly developed negative. We recommend the Epson v700.
BREAKING NEWS! If you are processing at home with our very own C-41 Kit you can SHOOT and PROCESS any C-41 film AND you can also develop the awesome Kodak Vision 3 line of color motion picture films! Read on!
How do I process Kodak Vision 3 line of films with FPP's c-41 Kit?
In addition to following the standard directions for C-41 home-processing please add the following steps.
1. When pouring your chemistry back into your containers, please use a coffee filter in your funnel to capture any "rem jet" waste. This will keep your chemistry clean for re-use!
2. After your Blix, rinse your film in a half bucket of hot water (80 - 102 degrees F). With your thumb, gently rub the non-emulsion side of your film as you remove it from your film reel. Careful not to scratch the emulsion of your film. Final rinse under running water before submerging your film into the two-minute Stabilizer. You will see the black rem jet in your water as you rinse.
That's it! Hang your film to dry and then scan! Enjoy!!!!
