- Additional Information
Slide film is ageless. For years, photographers have loaded it into their cameras and created memories that can be viewed as positive images on strips of film or mounted and projected in all their glory. In 2017 Kodak revived the iconic Ektachrome E100 slide film, reigniting the passion for positive.
The Cs6 "Creative Slide" 3-Bath Process makes complicated chemistry simplified alchemy! The number of processing baths for E-6 film is reduced from 6 to 3.

- Simple 3-bath process with 3 distinct 1st developer choices for changing the color profile of your slides
- Easy to mix 1st Developer concentrate makes 1 liter of stock solution (2 liters of working solution) and can process up to 16 rolls or 100ft of slide film
- Color&Reversal and Bleaches&Fixer liquid concentrates mix easily with water to make 1000ml of reusable solution, capable of processing 16+ and 24+ rolls of film, respectively

D9 “DYNAMICCHROME” WARM-TONE DYNAMIC 1ST DEVELOPER
D9 "DynamicChrome" is the world’s most flexible 1st developer for slide film, rendering approximately 9+ stops of usable dynamic range*, compared to approximately 6 stops with conventional E-6 processing (or D6 "DaylightChrome 1st Developer) while maintaining vibrant color-contrast and rich warm-tones with preserved highlight and shadow detail (optimized for scanning) for a more cinematic look. The photographer has the choice between 3 dilutions; dilute 1+1 with water for warm-tone slides with 2+ stops of extended dynamic range, or for further preserved highlight detail and a more neutral color balance dilute 1+2 or 1+3. D9 is perfect for high contrast scenes and is optimized for scanning. 1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 Dilution) to develop up to 16 rolls or 100ft of slide film.
Warm-Tone Development: 1+1 Dilution ~ 9 min. 15 sec. at 104°f (40°C)
Extended Highlight Latitude: 1+2 Dilution ~ 11 min. at 104°f (40°C)
Pull -1 (overexposed film): 1+3 Dilution ~ 13 min at 104°f (40°C)
For push processing we recommend our D6 or T6 1st Developers.
