    Ok, so if your even thinking twice about buying this developer your nuts. its the cheapest one out there and super easy to mix and use. just have 3 1 liter botles pour the chems in and mix. that easy. the only time i have had issues were if the film was 30 plus years old and i developed too long, or i loaded them in steel reels which were hard to use and overlaped the film on accedent. user error :( so i got plastic reels. :) happy face.

    One last note. don't loose your instructions!!!!!!!! i could not stress this enough. but if you do, here they are for the hand tank method.

    **type time temp agitation**

    *pre-soak* 1min 102 none
    *developer* 3.5min 102 agitate first
    10sec then 4
    inversions every 30secs
    *Blix* 6.5min 95-105 same as above
    ***rest can be done in open tank***
    *wash* 3min 95-105 running water
    *stabalizer* 1/2-1min room temp agitatate 15sec

    It's difficult to give this kit a fair rating, since results are subject to my own competencies. I used this to develop 6 rolls of 120 film (so far). Five of the rolls were Portra 800, and one roll was Fuji 160 Pro. The Fuji film came out stunningly good, as good or better than the lab I usually use (NCPS). If I were to base this review solely on that, it would be 5 stars for sure. The Portra came out less well. Two of the rolls had a color cast that was very difficult to impossible to correct digitally. The remaining 3 rolls came out fairly well, just a slight (and correctable) color cast, but not what I would call professional results. Maintaining temps was easier than I thought, so I don't think I messed anything up during the process, but I'm definitely a newbie...

      Comments about Tetenal C-41 Press Kit for Color Negative Film (Powder):

      I developed my first roll of C41 with it and it worked extremely well.
      Follow the directions in the kit (especially the temperature) and a few drops of Photoflow in the Stabilizer and you will end up with great colour negatives.
      Each kit will do 8 rolls of 35mm and all the chemicals are re-used for all 8.
      I believe it is easier than B&W developing.
      I am glad I bought several kits. In powder form, it ships easily between the US and Canada. It also stores a long time as a powder.
      Film developing chemicals are hard to come by, but this Tetenal (Jobo) Press Kit eliminates the "hard to find" part of colour negative developing.

              Love this kit. It works perfect for the price. Though it says you can only process 8 rolls of film, I've developed a max of 12 on 35mm. Would definitely buy it again.

                I had been processing black & white for a couple of years, and had always heard how difficult color film was to develop so was leery of trying it, but came across instructions that seemed easy enough. This kit wasn't exactly the same as the instructions I found described, but it was close to it. The kit does come with complete instructions for mixing and using the chemicals, and apart from getting the chemicals to the right temperature, it was not hard to use. After developing a couple of rolls, it's about as easy as developing black and white. I hope B&H continues to carry this product in the future, as will be buying this again.

                    I was intimidated by color processing before using this kit. I've heard horror stories on "the dreaded color film process" But once I had it in my hands and read the instructions I found it how easy it was. It really helps out with students (or recent grads like myself) when it comes to budgeting their artistic practice. I've developed a bunch of rolls with no problems! Will purchase again!

                      The powder is super easy to make and works wonderfully with my JoBo processor. I prefer this much more than having someone else process my film. I've also found out that if you've got a ton of 120mm film, you can re-use this chemistry for about nine rolls total. I didn't try any more than that though, because I didn't want my color to be off.

                              I have been developing my own B&W film for a little over a year and due to temperature control have been afraid to try color (C41). So I finally decided to jump in feet first using this kit, and oh boy is it easy. I think it might even be easier than B&W because there are no variables, all films use the same time, and agitation technique. I was afraid to try my own color at first for fear that I couldn't hold the temperatures, lo and behold it's pretty simple. I get the chemicals up to temp (developer and blix) by preheating them to 102 degrees farenheit in a bucket of the hottest water I can draw from my tap. I also place my paterson tank in the bucket between agitation cycles to help hold the temp. So far thats worked excellantly, the kit says it can do eight 36 exposure rolls of 35mm. I've got 22 rolls of 120 on my first kit and have yet to experience any negative effects.

                              Easy to mix powder, and got more use out of it than it said on the package!

                              Leary of doing C-41 @ home. I took the plunge and bought this kit. Reading the instructions it seemed straight forward. Clear and precise! Temperatures are critical to maintain, but can be done. Did 8 rolls on my first go. Each processed great and will purchase again, and again...

                                    Exceeds my expectations. WOW. As noted with other reviews stick to the directions and you will be rewarded with excellent photos. Kodak Ektar is amazing. Thank you for opening a world of possibilities.

                                      Because so many film developing companies are closing I took it upon myself to learn to develop film. This kit makes it easy and fun. I will definitely be buying more.

                                      The liquid version is far better. Constantly got magenta in the shadows. Processed using a jobo.

                                      If you have developed color film before you like this 3 step kit (bleach and fix in one step)

                                      If you have never but are interested in giving it a try - go for it.

                                      Developing average goes much faster then black and white film yet its more senstive to developer, fixer temperature - and if you dont have that right it can and will mess up your film :(

                                      Great kit to start and use regularily, with any color film powderbased with easy mixing instructions

                                        I use the kit to develop 4X5,120 & 220 and I have had nothing but fantastic results. So easy to use, just mix and your done. As long as your times and temperatures are maintained everything should turn out great.
