Subject: [Leica] E-6 processing differences

I process around 500 rolls of E-6 a year on a Jobo CPP2.   I wish I had 
an ATL by the way.

Jobo literature tells you to change the dilution of the reversal bath for 
Kodak films.  But I use mostly Fuji so I've ignored that..

I've found that Fuji CDU II slide dupe film requires an additional 2 
minutes more fixing time to get the yellow cast out of highlight areas.  
CDU is really sensitive to processing variations and you have to be 
extremely consistent time, temp and chemistry-wise if you're going to 
expect consistency between runs.  Many pro labs aren't that consistent 
from week to week.
