I'm looking into the foray of home processing, now I know that E6 is especially designed for processing at home, but what about other processes? How hard is it to process Rem-Jet stocks at home?

Thanks.

I dont know about color - and I'm not sure if your interested in B+W but I've done a fair amount of it in Lomo tanks - mostly Plus-X but attempts at neg stock as reversal have come out grainy but ok (fp4) ...

It was with 16mm but I understand you are prob interested in super8 ?

heh, I just bought another one here in New Zealand specifically for the purpose of on-selling it via eBay... (I have 4 now)

Its the 10m (33ft) Lomo tank and it can take both 8mm and 16mm film - but is much better suited for 8mm as 33ft of 16mm isn't very much footage at all... As I understand it super8 is shot on 50ft cartridges - you'd have to develop them in bunches... Like 33ft of cartridge1 then 17ft each of cartridge1 and cartridge2 then the remaining 33ft of cartridge2 - this way its only 3 soups per 100ft as opposed to 4

pics of the same model here (the one on the right)

Its yet to arrive, and will probably do so this Monday. They've been going for around 60 quid and higher on eBay lately so be prepared for that, but if your keen and have done yer homework re. if its going to work with color then I'm sure we can work something nicer out... I dont want it to sit around unused!

...oooor wait around for a 2x50ft model to turn up on eBay Tunguska for around 75quid - you'd be able to do two cartridges in one pop that way

remjet is removable with a borax solution (Pierre Sam Formula):

this is the compleate formula for tyhe rem-jet remover:

water 700 ml
Borax Pentahydrate 20 g
Sodium Sulfate 100g
Sodium Metaborate 10g

add water to make 1000ml or 1 litre

(that before the developer, otherwise you'll end up with a lot of carbon floating around the dev. Another idea is to use the e6 bleach instead of the c41.

You wish tell, The rem-jet layer will removed and the soot not will on a film ?

I process of color negative cine film, use of pre-bath with alkaline solution and washing.
But, i don't have full moving off of rem-jet layer.
The alkaline solution destroy of vehicle of rem-jet layer.
I study of structure of professional machine for processing of film.
They have rollers with foam-rubber and mechanical moving off of rem-jet layer from film with washing after pre-batch of chemical destroy of rem-jet layer.

This is very important question.
I will be glad to know of result of oher tests.

Well, I'm toying with the idea of processing the film myself from my new film that's soon-a-comin', I'll tell you what happens if I do undertake that.

Olex, do you stock the Lomo tank that can process two cartridges in one pop?

Thanks. ;)

LOMO S8/16 x 50 ft tank have uhniversal spiral with double discs and the every side of spiral can be setup for processing of Super 8 , 8 mm, DS8, D8, 16 mm films.

That's why, at one time you can process :
- two rolls of super 8 films 50 + 50 ft ( 15 + 15 m ) ( Two cartridges Super 8 x 50 ft )
- two rolls of D8 films 33 + 33 ft ( 10.5 + 10.5 m )
- two rolls of DS8 films 33 + 33 ft ( 10.5 + 10.5 m )
- two rolls of 16 mm films 50 + 50 ft ( 15 + 15 m )

or
- one Super 8 ( 50 ft) + one roll of D8,( DS8, 16 mm ) films
- or one 35 mm films x 15 m ( 50 ft )

Old Kodachrome has a black backing that comes off easily with soap and water. Real easy. Photo flo may do it as well. Worth a try. It has to be rubbed off some.

Hey matthew, if you have a dark room, it would be insanely easy to build a rewind tank. I could give you some sketches if you want.
