    I have a basic c41 question. I plan on starting dev my own c41 film soon and I already have some Kodak Flexicolor C41 Dev. Since I can not get the other gunuine EKC chems shipped, at least easily, is it ok to use Unicolor bleach, fix and stabilizer with the Kodak dev? Is this a bad idea? I do plan to run Fuji, Kodak and some Konica c41 film and before buying the bl + fix + stab I thought someone might be able to advise me. Thanks for your time.

    Yes, you can use the bleach and fix with Kodak developer.

    Make sure you use the correct stabilzer with your film.

    Thanks PE I have read on this site about the stabilize issue. I do know when I was in the lab buisness we did not switch stabilizers for different films. I did not run the c41 line full time but I did load film from time to time and it all just went in at the same time. What stabilizer should I use for older Konica Impresa 50? I was planning of buying the unicolor k2 stabilizer.
