D9 "DynamicChrome" 1st Developer Bath for WARM-TONE DYNAMIC SLIDES, for the Cs6 3-Bath Process (E-6 chrome)

  • $12.99



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!

Extended exposure latitude increases the usable dynamic-range* of slide film from 6 to 9+ STOPS! Conventional E-6 processing renders approximately 6 stops of usable dynamic-range*. Maintains vibrant color-contrast and rich warm-tones with preserved highlight and shadow detail (optimized for scanning) for a more cinematic look. Perfect for high contrast lighting or backlit subjects in daylight, shade or with electronic flash.

Top: E100 Underexposed -1 Stop.  Bottom: E100 Overexposed +1 Stop.

For color-timing chrome, reversal, and E-6 compatible film. “DynamicChrome” dynamic-tonal-range 1st Developer. 1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of single-use working solution (1+1 dilution) to develop 8-16 rolls or 100ft of Slide Film.

Intended to be used with the Cr6 "Color&Reversal" 2-in-1 Slide Solution and the Bf6 "Bleaches&Fixer" 3-in-1 Slide Solution.  Cs6 "Creative Slide" 3-Bath Kits also available

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 bleach and conditioner 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.

FEATURES:

  • Extended exposure latitude for slightly warm-tones in daylight, shade or with electronic flash
  • 1000ml stock solution makes 2000ml of working solution (diluted 1+1 with water)
  • Single-use solution has a capacity of 8-16 rolls (135/120), 32-64 sheets (4x5), or 100 feet (35mm) of film
  • Approximately 9+ stops of usable dynamic-range*!
  • Preserved highlight and shadow detail with rich-tones for a more cinematic look
  • Extended exposure latitude while maintaining vibrant color-contrast
  • Optimized for scanning
  • Natural color saturation
  • Image archivability for at least 80 years
  • Easily mixed powder concentrate

MIXING STOCK SOLUTION:

  1. Place 600-700ml of water into a clean glass or plastic pitcher.
  2. Use a clean plastic stir stick or the TCS-1000 to circulate the liquid.
  3. While circulating, add the contents of the powder packet.
  4. Top off solution with water to make 1000ml. Mix well.

Store mixed solution in a tightly capped, completely filled storage container for 2-6 weeks. Yellows with age and turns amber when perished. Oxygen and contaminants cause developing agents to perish.

Warm-Tone Development: 1+1 Dilution ~ 9min @104°f (40°C)
Extended Highlight Latitude: 1+2 Dilution ~ 10.5min.
Pull -1 (overexposed film): 1+3 Dilution ~ 12min
Push processing is not recommended with DynamicCrome

Maintaining temperature is not essential beyond pouring in the 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.

* "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).
