UPDATE: Howto Develop Motion Picture Film

I’ve been experimenting with development temperatures for Kodak Vision3 films lately. My original write-up, found here, was using the standard C-41 development temperatures which worked well for Kodak 5230 500T. Kodak 5230 inherently has a lower contrast and saturation value compared to the newer Vision3 films. Vision3 films tend to mimic digital contrast and colour saturation, which doesn’t lend well to the development times for C-41. In my opinion. Over the weekend I developed a couple batches at 35C and

Hopefully this will be of some help to new comers. The method is cross processing ECN-II film with C-41 chemicals. I know there is a lot of talk about incorrect colours,
