    Tetenal e6/c41 kits in 1L and 5L size discontinued

    You'll notice on Freestyle's site that the kits are marked "clearance" even though the price isn't reduced. The 1L and 5L kits will be replaced with a 2.5L kit. One less option. Dammit.
    Bummer because my c41 blix part 2 went bad before I got even half way through it and they don't have replacements. That's another story though.

    The 5L C41 shows both "clearance" and "out of stock", but lists a due date of Feb 12. I hope the 5L kit stays available. I'm just getting into color film processing.

    The 5L kit will no longer be available. Freestyle is the only retailer in the u.s. who carries Tetenal color chems.

    Damn!!

    I am still on backorder for a 5L set of C-41 chemicals.

    However, I already divide my chemicals into 2.5L batches. Did you call them, and get the information regarding the 2.5L kits? Any clue what the pricing will be? I'm going to be a bit miffed if the 2.5L kit is like $60. That would be effectively a 55% price hike.

    My conversation was via email. No clue on price but I highly doubt it will be cheaper. Tetenal needs to change their deal with Freestyle and sell these chems to other vendors.

    There's a post on APUG updating this. According to that the OP has been in touch with Tetenal and, after further consideration, they are going to maintain 1 litre kits.

    I don't buy the 1L packages because the pricing structure is ridiculous. $51 for 1L, $77 for 5L?! Where's the logic in that? Of course buying in bulk should be a bit cheaper per liter, but that's just crazy. If they only have 1L packages I won't be buying them, I'll find another source/vendor/brand.

    They're apparently going to have 1 litre as well as 2.5 litres.

    Great, well I don't post/browse APUG - did they mention prices? Since the 5L was $77, I'm hoping the 2.5L isn't more than $40 or so, but I am betting that's wishful thinking.

    This post? http://www.apug.org/forum/index.php?...uction.134677/
    The guy is from Norway, not the U.S. Hopefully his email is true for us as well but Freestyle is the sole U.S. distributor just because Tetenal sells it in Europe, doesn't mean Freestyle will stock it here.
