    Hi everyone,

    Finding Kodak Ektachrome developer and bleach-fix for my processor is becoming impossible to find.

    I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for using a different brand of chemicals that would work in my Colex processor. I spoke with someone at Calumet and he said to just give it up, but I'm not quite ready to do that.

    Thanks for any help!

    For anyone with the same question, Kodak RA-4 chemicals in multiple sizes for anything from manual reel in tank processing at home, to large minilab processors can be found at both B&H (though they won't ship) and Adorama (will ship ground) as well as multiple sets from Freestyle (freestylephoto.biz) in their Arista brand.

    Oops! I just noticed you said RA-4 in the title, but then mentioned Ektachrome chemicals. Ektachrome as in slide film can be processed by E-6, also available from Freestyle in various size kits. I'm assuming you meant Ektacolor, which would be the RA-4 chemicals.
