    Would anyone like to comment on the discrepancy in suggested timings for
    Fuji E6 film, between the Jobo website and Tetenal E6 instructions?

    Tetenal give FD 7:00 for rotary processors, then 6:00 for CD and 6:00 for BL
    (all fresh solutions). Jobo website instructions for the CPE-2 Plus give FD
    7:30, CD 4:00 and BL 6:00.

  2. Jobo use different chemicals. Fuji-Hunt instead of Tetenal.

    Use the recommendations of the chemical manufacturer. Chemical
    formulations may vary (Kodak's six-bath E-6 kit recommends 7:00 @ 38C
    for the first developer in a rotary processor, 2:00 reversal, and 4:00
    color developer), and the documentation that comes with them is likely
    a more accurate guide.

    The first developer is the most time/temp sensitive. It determines
    your overall density. The color developer/reversal step should be a
    reaction to completion, as is the blix.

    So far I've found 7:30 to be way off the mark for 1st developer. My
    transparencies come out a little more dense than I would like them to.
    The standard time of 6:00 for 1st developer works just fine. Otherwise
    follow the rest of Tetenal's instructions and you can't go wrong.

  6. So 7:30 makes them too light?
    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President,
    or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong,
    is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable
    to the American public."--Theodore Roosevelt, May 7, 1918
