    ----------
    Yes, all E-6 films should develop for the same time and temp. Otherwise
    commercial developers would need separate setups for each brand/type of
    film.
    Not sure where you got that info, pH adjustment is usually used only in big
    labs for replenished processors. As above if the developing kit is
    correctly formulated and the film is E-6 standard no tweaking of pH is
    required for any brand of film.
    Mix just what you need and process "one shot". Concentrates last quite a
    while. If you aren't using the kits up before expiration either buy smaller
    kits or send your film out. Chemical waste really cuts into the economy of
    processing your own film.
    Nope, Scala is an off-beat, black and white reversal product not compatible
    with E-6. Capable of fine results, but the process is proprietary and
    nothing like E-6. Having said that, I'm sure someone, somewhere has managed
    to process Scala in E-6 (but not without much modification of the process).
    No, you'll never find recommendations beyond what the maker envisions as the
    purpose of their produce.

    from brochure inside produt, but note, kodak say something like this about ph of
    **water** used for baths.
    not all people have the same water
    I understand this but I search a system for more long live of chemicals, freeze
    is one. after all I test this metod the next time.
    a proces like kodakchrome ?
    bad comercial policy :)
