    That would be an E-6 kit. I just got my first C-41 kit in, from the Film Photography Project. The key with color is good temperature control, so you need a constant-temperature water bath. A lot of people use inexpensive crockpots for this temperature-control function.

    Yep. That's the ONLY thing that has been keeping me from trying color developing - it's very temperature sensitive. The monobath I use for B/W is simply "room temperature" (@72º).

    Apparently, some folks use a Sous Vide wand to keep the water temperature even for color developing. I'll be doing a bit of research this morning.

    As I was struggling with when I could take the time to drop off my Provia 120 rolls from the weekend, I checked into the Film Photography Project Please login or register to view links again. Seems that it will arrive in only 1 day (they must be close to, or in, NYC), and it will cost about the same as getting just 2 rolls lab-developed (with subway fare), AND I will have developed film in about the same time frame! So I ordered the kit. Pretty excited!!

    My E-6 kit arrived today, and the 1st 2 rolls of Provia 120 are already developed and scanned. I was literally giggling like a 5 year old when I saw the 1st roll hanging to dry! So cool!

    Honestly, it was all easier and less stressful than I thought it would be. Mixing the 3 different solutions (Developer A, B and Blix) with super hot water was the worst part. Luckily I live in a big apartment complex, so consistently hot water is not an issue. I wasn't too crazy about nailing the development temp 100%, but I tried to keep everything at @100ºF, and everything seems to have gone well!

    All Hasselblad 500 C/M + 80/2.8 (at 2.8) + 10mm Extension. Provia 100 home developed in Arista Rapid E-6. Scanned with Sony A7ii + Tamron 90mm f/2.5 Macro using a Lomography "DigitaLiza"120 film holder and a lightbox.

    I did NOTHING. ZERO. NADA to the A7 scanned chromes in LightRoom. Just imported the RAW scans, cropped and exported. The A7 picked the right color temp, and exposed all the shots perfectly!

    All taken at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

    Nice work. Great colors. I have been having better luck with my camera scans lately by doing less to the files, but of course with print film there is a more complicated color-balance problem to solve.

    That is why I will only shoot Provia from now on (and hopefully Ektachrome some day!).

    I should try the E-6 kit and shoot me some slide film, but I have gotten addicted to the huge latitude and soft colors of Portra, Ektar, Lomo 100, Fuji Pro400H, etc.

    Lomography just announced pre-orders for another secret stash of an old expired Ferrania color print film they call F2/400. This time it is 120 film. Last time it was in 135mm and I picked up a few rolls. By the time I found out how much I liked it they sold out. I absolutely loved the color of this stuff. It is a bit grainy, but beautiful. I pre-ordered a bunch in 120. It will sell out fast.

    This is really cool. Those colors plus that signature 80mm Planar 6x6 bokeh render beautifully. I'm definitely going to try this after seeing your results. Thanks for sharing!

    Here is an example of Lomography 100 print film. I like the colors and rendering of this film more every time I use it. It is particularly good with greens, which a lot of films struggle with, in my opinion. I shot this in the excellent Konica Auto S2, a rangefinder camera with a fixed 45mm/1.8 lens. Home-scanned with the Prime Film XE.

    Thanks! I'm MORE than happy with how everything turned out.

    Note that I'm using a 10mm extension tube on the 80mm, which brings the close focus from @1 meter / 3 feet down to @0.5 m / 15". All of those images are close to, or right at MFD, which pumps up the Bokeh!

    Here's another from the roll of Fujifilm Pro400H that I exposed in the Rolleiflex.
    This was shot hand-held, on the move. The more practice I get with the TLR the better I like it.
    The film was digitized with an X-E2 and a Minolta Celtic 50mm/3.5 macro lens by stitching two frames together.
