Hey folks, we are missing just a couple items to be able to do E6 color development by hand using the [[Darkroom/Resources#Developing_Stuff | chems Eric donated]]. I have amazon prime, so I can get some of this stuff with free shipping. You can paypal me donations; email for address. I will buy the gear when we get close to the donations target.

When we get this all together and actually mix up the chems, we will want to try to use them up within a week or so. Given this, it's good if we have a little backlog of slide film ready to develop before we mix up the chems. If you have slide film you've shot (or can commit to shoot soon, add a date) you can add yourself to the development queue here. (''I understand the batch should be good for ~15-20 rolls?

Hey folks, we have successfully achieved E6 color development by hand using the chems Eric donated. This is a full 6 bath E6 kit (as opposed to E6 Rapid).

[edit] E6 "6 bath" steps

Following is the protocol we followed, it is a hybrid of the instructions on the box of chems and the 6 bath instructions on wikipedia. I will write down the exact chems we used and find a link for them next time I'm in the space. If you want a simpler process, consider E6 Rapid.

  1. 1st dev - 6 min @ 100.0°F
  2. water stop bath - 2 min @ 100.0°F
  3. reversal - 2 min @ 96-103°F
  4. 2nd dev - 6 min @ 96-103°F
  5. pre-bleach - 2 min @ 90-103°F
  6. bleach - 6 min @ 92-103°F
  7. water rinse @ 92-103°F
  8. fixer - 4 min @ 92-103°F
  9. water rinse @ 92-103°F (goes in fix-water jug)
  10. final rinse - 1 min @ 80-103°F (includes photo flo)

[edit] Color Development Equipment Checklist

  • Large tub, translucent plastic preferred (think we have this)
  • E6 chems (thanks Eric!)
  • temp controller (see shopping list below)
  • chem bottles, 1 qt x6 (see shopping list below)
  • plastic reels, 35mm & 120 (ours are convertible)

Most of this stuff is on the Darkroom resources page.

[edit] Development queue

Update: Kelly and MacKenzie mixed up a 1 liter batch of E6 chems on 8/14/11 and have developed 8 rolls in it since then. Feel free to book yourself some E6 time while the chems are still good! --Hurtstotouchfire 02:03, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

  • Heroic 06:08, 8 August 2011 (UTC) - about eight rolls
    • Various Velvia 50, Velvia 100, Digibase CR200, shot on the Big Island of Hawaii

[edit] Donating film

If you'd like to donate some slide film or $$ towards slide film that may be helpful for people who don't already have a backlog of E6 film to develop.

[edit] E6 examples and recommendations

If you're just looking for advice on what film to get, you can check out what other people have been shooting, above. Unfortunately slide film is a bit more expensive than color negative film, running about $8/roll for 36 exposures on 35mm. It's lovely though. I know that Joachim and Jas can probably provide more examples (links, guys?), but my flickr feed has a few shots which were E6 processed slide film. --Hurtstotouchfire 17:58, 24 June 2011 (UTC)
