    A local Film Processing Lab is closing down and I know the Technician quite well -- so I told him I was out of C41 developer and he kindly gave me a set A.B and C of Fuji Hunt ' Econoneg Developer Replenisher LR' and some 'Starter' to make the working developer . I carefully measured out the amounts to make 500 mls as a 'test' and did a C41 process in a Paterson Tank when the chemicals are really designed for an expensive machine BUT I got good-looking negs ! The real test is how they 'Scan 'and 'Print' -- using my Canon 9000F Mk II + Vuescan Pro + FastStone Image Viewer I found they scanned with a slight Cyan bias ans some a bit 'dark' but easily corrected in FastStone. I had the Bleach and Fix Chemicls already.
