Tetenal has been through a rough ride in the last couple of weeks. There was some speculation about the largest film chemical producer ceasing to trade after 172 years in business. Lots of drama ensued, and a lot of gun jumping occurred.
Last year, Cinestill unveiled their one stop B&W developer, which was greeted with overall positive reviews. It was a one stop solution to developing at home, without the need to mix any further chemicals. Now, Cinestill have announced a powered C41 processing kit, consisting of a two bath kit. This means that one is able to develop colour film at home as easily as it is for B&W.
