Description

You can now use the QWD ECN-2 developer to home-dev your movie stock in 35mm and 120 format, including the legendary Kodak Vision3 range! Brand new to the European market, this ECN2 kit will make it easy for you to shoot and develop cine films.

Recently launched in the USA and receiving rave reviews (see Bill Manning's video below) now is the perfect moment to begin experimenting with ECN-2.

Already used by DP's and Directors in Hollywood and around the world, this kit has established itself as the go-to for anyone who enjoys the incredible colours of movie film. Whether you are using this for a pitch deck, storyboards or just after the amazing exposure latitude of motion stock you keep hearing about, this developer kit has you covered.

With a simple four step process and a workflow just like C-41, you can use this ECN-2 kit with all of your existing home developing hardware.

 

NB: please note that the liquid fixer that Bill shows within the kit has since been replaced by a powder fixer - with the same efficiency and use :-)

How Does the Bundled Developing Work?

To make your analogue adventures even easier (and cheaper!) we’ve implemented the option to pre-pay for your processing when you buy your film. This means that you choose your developing and scanning options on this page, via the little tick-box above, and add everything to basket for an immediate 10% saving on all processing costs.

Your film will be dispatched in line with our usual shipping times (full details here) and you will also get an email with instructions on sending the film back to the WonderLab (with tracked shipping - on us!)

When you have shot the film - whether that takes you a day, month or year - you generate the free tracked postage label by following the simple instructions from the email, and pop it in the post with a note of your original order number. We’ll do the rest!

So buy the bundle and relax into the shooting process, knowing that you’ll get to see the final results from your photography, without having to reach for your wallet again.

Happy Shooting!

We send all parcels via TRACKED service - free in the UK for orders of film over £50.

This means that when you buy your film from us you will be emailed a tracking link at dispatch, and will be able to follow your parcel’s journey all the way to safe arrival.

Please note that it is not a signed service so you won’t need to be at home to receive your film, and our letterbox-friendly boxes fit through the vast majority of European letterboxes!

Early days but good results so far

Having previously used Vision 3 with C41 I decided it was time to compare using the correct chemistry so picked up this kit.

It's a bit more aggro than C41 in terms of temp juggling and extra washes but not difficult with a little concentration.

The colours are nice, slightly muted but well balanced, and seem more authentic than the results of cross processing.

I can't comment on capacity or keeping power but, worst case, the pre-bath, bleach, and fix should all be good to use with C41 dev if needed so not too much of a worry about that.

Easier than it seems

ECN-2 turns out to be only a little more complicated than C41.

The remjet layer comes off with ease. The temperature ranges of the chemicals are easy enough to manage with just a little juggling-warm all chemical bottles together, take out pre-bath first (27 C), raise the rest to 41 C, develop and remove the others from the bath to cool to 27-38 C.

QWD’s instructions are good and easy to follow. Any problems and they are there to help. I can vouch for that.

I liked the colour and look I got from this. I like it more than the results I get from Vision 3 cross processed in C41. Vision 3 was designed for ECN-2 after all.

This devoloper pack only good for 4 rolls of film then it rapidly loses it's strength and 2 to 3 percent compensation required but still not accurate not worth the money..
