GRAPHIC DEVELOPERSAn 11 12 minute processing system for color negative films is described that consists of the following four sequential steps development, bleach-fix, wash, and photo-flo rinse at 75F. Formulations are given for a 5 12 minute color developer and a 3 minute bleach-fix. Eastman Kodak Ektacolor Type S and Kodocolor Type X films processed in this chemistry have sensitometric characteristics equivalent to those obtained after processing the films for 53 minutes in Eastman Kodak C-22. The paper discusses the capacity and shelf-life of these solutions and the stability of the processed films to ultraviolet exposure, high temperature, and high humidity storage. Author
