Introducing the Cs6 “Creative Slide” 3-Bath Process for simple creative control of your analog photos. Chrome unlocked!

For the first time ever, you can change the color profile of your slides! With limited slide film options available today, CineStill's groundbreaking Cs6 chemistry triples your film choices, with a quick and easy process while maintaining maximum creative control, making your slides superior to color-corrected negative scans, without sacrificing flexibility.

The Cs6 "Creative Slide" 3-Bath Process makes complicated chemistry simplified alchemy! The number of processing baths for E6 film is reduced from 6 to 3. The reversal step occurs during color development in a Color&Reversal bath, and the conditioner and bleach steps are combined with the fixing step in a Bleaches&Fixer bath. Color-timing is performed with alternative 1st Developers to achieve full creative control of your slides. With 3 distinct choices for color-timing chrome, reversal, and E-6 compatible film. 

Includes:

  • D9 “DynamicChrome”, D6 “DaylightChrome”, or T6 “TungstenChrome” 1st Developer
  • Cr6 “Color&Reversal” 2-in-1 Slide Solution
  • Bf6 “Bleaches&Fixer” 3-in-1 Slide Solution

The “1000ml/Quart Kit” can process up to 16 Rolls or 100ft of Slide Film.
The “3,2,1 Chemical Reuse Kit” contains 3 units of the 1st Developer, 2 of the Cr6 , and 1 of the Bf6 to processes 32+ Rolls of film.

D9 “DynamicChrome” Warm-Tone Dynamic 1st Developer. 
Renders approximately 9+ stops of usable dynamic-range*!  Conventional E-6 processing renders approximately 6 stops of usable dynamic-range*. The world’s most flexible 1st developer for slide film, giving the photographer the choice between warm-tone slides with slightly extended highlights and shadows detail (1+1 Dilution), or even more expanded dynamic range (1+2 Dilution) for high contrast scenes with a subtle warming effect achieved by simply changing the chemistry dilution of your working solution!
1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 dilution) to develop 8-16 rolls or 100ft of Slide Film. 
1+1 Dilution ~ 9min. @104°f (40°C)**
Extended exposure latitude while maintaining vibrant color-contrast and rich warm-tones with preserved highlight and shadow detail (optimized for scanning) for a more cinematic look. High-dynamic-range for warm-tone slides in daylight, shade or with electronic flash. 

D6 “DaylightChrome” Neutral-Tone 5500K 1st Developer.
Renders approximately 6+ stops of usable dynamic-range*, with brighter whites and moderately enhanced color saturation, just like conventional E-6 processing. Daylight-balanced 5500K for neutral-tone slides in daylight or with electronic flash.
1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 dilution) to develop 8-16 rolls or 100ft of Slide Film.
1+1 Dilution ~ 6min. @104°f (40°C)**

T6 “TungstenChrome” Cool-Tone 3200K 1st Developer.
Renders approximately 6+ stops of usable dynamic-range* with brighter whites, and moderately enhanced color saturation. Tungsten-balanced 3200K for artificial light or cool-tone E100T slides. Also, works great for push processing in limited light!
1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 dilution) to develop 8-16 rolls or 100ft of Ektachrome®.
1+1 Dilution ~ 6min. @104°f (40°C)**

Cr6 “Color&Reversal” Color Developer & Reversal Bath.
The reversal step occurs during color development in a Color&Reversal bath,
1000ml Reusable Solution Reverses 16+ Rolls of Developed Slide Film.
Stock > 6min @ 80 -104°f (27-40°C)**

Bf6 “Bleaches&Fixer” Pre-Bleach & Blix Bath.
The bleach and conditioner steps are combined with the fixing step in a Bleaches&Fixer bath.
1000ml Reusable Solution Clears 24+ Rolls of Reversal Film.
Stock > 6-10min @ 75 -104°f (23-40°C)**

* ”Usable dynamic-range” is the amount of full stops of exposure value that renders acceptable detail and color. “Total dynamic-range” however, is the maximum range containing tonal separation rendering any detail, and is often twice the usable dynamic-range. The usable dynamic-range of conventional slide film is between 6-8 stops (total 14-16 stops). Color negative is between 9-13 stops (total 16-21 stops). Digital sensors are mostly between 7-10 stops (total 12-15 stops).

** Maintaining temperature is not essential beyond pouring in a 1st developer. When a temperature control bath is not available, simply preheat the 1st Developer +2ºF warmer, and the other baths will automatically process-to-completion as they cool down. Only the 1st developer is time and temperature critical because it controls contrast and color.
