Hi Jeffery,

I use a CPE 2 and find it entirely satisfactory. You need the lift to
make it truly useful.

It works equally well for normal B&W and C41. My biggest problem with
C41 is that I shoot so little of the stuff that I would end up wasting
much of the chemistry (since the shelf life is quite short). Tetenal has
now fixed that, by offering the chemistry in pill form--you just
dissolve enough for 2 rolls at a time.
