Dear Frameworkers,

I've used the Kodak TMax100 Direct Positive Kit in the past to
hand-process B/W reversal super 8mm film but the kit has been discontinued and I'm
trying to find some alternatives. Is there anything else that people can

Thanks in advance.

I think Photographer's Formulary has a similar kit. But the individual
chemical route is really the way to go for reversing regular B/W. Cheaper and
easier, and works better too.
Unless you're using T-Max the only thing the kits are good for is that
it's an easy way to get a hold of the acid bleach. But that's also why the
shipping costs so much.
