Introducing the Cinestill Cs6 “Creative Slide” 3-Bath Process for simple creative control of your analog photos. Chrome unlocked!
Great choice if you don't need to develop more than 16 rolls of film using big Tetenal E6 kit, and it's lighter (hence cheaper) to ship!
The Cinestill Cs6 "Creative Slide" 3-Bath Process makes complicated chemistry simplified alchemy! The number of processing baths for E6 film is reduced from 6 to 3. The reversal step occurs during color development in a Color&Reversal bath, and the conditioner and bleach steps are combined with the fixing step in a Bleaches&Fixer bath. Color-timing is performed with alternative 1st Developers to achieve full creative control of your slides.
Include the following chemicals to process 8-16 rolls of slide film
D9 “DynamicChrome” Warm-Tone Dynamic 1st Developer.
Renders approximately 9+ stops of usable dynamic-range*! Conventional E-6 processing renders approximately 6 stops of usable dynamic-range*. The world’s most flexible 1st developer for slide film, giving the photographer the choice between warm-tone slides with slightly extended highlights and shadows detail (1+1 Dilution), or even more expanded dynamic range (1+2 Dilution) for high contrast scenes with a subtle warming effect achieved by simply changing the chemistry dilution of your working solution!
1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 dilution) to develop 8-16 rolls or 100ft of Slide Film.
1+1 Dilution ~ 9min. @104°f (40°C)**
Extended exposure latitude while maintaining vibrant color-contrast and rich warm-tones with preserved highlight and shadow detail (optimized for scanning) for a more cinematic look. High-dynamic-range for warm-tone slides in daylight, shade or with electronic flash.
The reversal step occurs during color development in a Color&Reversal bath,
1000ml Reusable Solution Reverses 16+ Rolls of Developed Slide Film.
Stock > 6min @ 80 -104°f (27-40°C)**
Bf6 “Bleaches&Fixer” Pre-Bleach & Blix Bath.
The bleach and conditioner steps are combined with the fixing step in a Bleaches&Fixer bath.
1000ml Reusable Solution Clears 24+ Rolls of Reversal Film.
Stock > 6-10min @ 75 -104°f (23-40°C)**
* ”Usable dynamic-range” is the amount of full stops of exposure value that renders acceptable detail and color. “Total dynamic-range” however, is the maximum range containing tonal separation rendering any detail, and is often twice the usable dynamic-range. The usable dynamic-range of conventional slide film is between 6-8 stops (total 14-16 stops). Color negative is between 9-13 stops (total 16-21 stops). Digital sensors are mostly between 7-10 stops (total 12-15 stops).
** Maintaining temperature is not essential beyond pouring in a 1st developer. When a temperature control bath is not available, simply preheat the 1st Developer +2ºF warmer, and the other baths will automatically process-to-completion as they cool down. Only the 1st developer is time and temperature critical because it controls contrast and color.
