Hello,

I have the chance to buy an r3 processing kit. What is the difference between this and an e6 kit? Can I use the R3 kit in a lomo tank to home process ektachrome reversal?

Thanks

Not really. R-3 is a reversal process for paper prints from slides.

Process R-3 is not recommended for films. You may get an image, but it will be off for color and contrast.

Weren't color reversal papers discontinued all the way back in '03 or '04? It's been longer than a few months for certain. As far as I know, the only color reversal print process left is cibachrome, and that may not have too long now that Ilford England and Ilford Switzerland are no longer the same company.

Regards,

Also, Grant, I wouldn't recommend your trying to process any color film unless you have some sort of high-end Jobo heating unit. Especially with chrome film, color shifts are killer. Being off a fraction of a degree can influence your results, NOT GOOD if you're trying to maintain consistancy across several thousand feet of footage.

thanks Karl. I'm actually wanting a messed up look so technical perfection isnt required for this. I'm just after a way to get interesting 'experimental' results so have been looking for cheaper ways to get chemicals. I'm still very new to this and have a lot to learn so thanks for the advice.
