I think it's time to try my own C-41. Has anyone used the Arista C-41 liquid kit from Freestyle? Fairly good quality/ease of use, or am I just digging my own grave here?

I've only used the Jessops Photochem stuff until now which is very easy to use and seems to tolerate small temperature changes.

I have some different stuff on order (I forget the name!) and can let you know how that turns out.

C41 really isn't that hard. Like Redneckdan says, it's just a chemistry experiment. Stick to the times & temps & you'll be OK. If you want to try experimenting just keep accurate notes you can refer back to.

I use Paterson C41 chemicals.
Very easy to use.
Can vary temp but time needs adjusting as with B/W.
Temp is only critical for the 3 to 4 minutes of developer time.
Go on - do it.
Cheers
Jeff
