On this impromptu episode of Dev Party, we’re going commercial! Okay, not really, but we *are* using Eric’s ECN-2 kit to develop Kodak Motion Picture film in 120! Now, this isn’t Cinestill – this is the raw stuff, complete with Remjet coating!
Remjet is a thin carbon coating on the non-emulsion side of motion picture film. It serves as a sort of dry lubrication (as the film speeds through the movie cameras) and provides some sort of anti-halation services (this is disputed, but whatever).
We first tell you how to mix the kit, which is super simple. And then we tell you two ways to remove Remjet: Baking Soda water and elbow grease.
Eric’s kits are available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/781436189/ecn-2-color-film-developing-kit
Vania shot Kodak Vision 3 500T in a Mamiya RB67, and here are her beautiful results:
Meanwhile, Eric developed two rolls shot in Vania’s Hasselblad 500C. He wasn’t trilled with the results, but hasn’t used the camera enough to feel any sort of comfort with it. Here are a few he liked:
