I'm done now with my 5th attempt at C41 processing and well... my results are at least consistent
Starting to think I may have a bad or old batch of this Rollei kit. Colors are generally muted and wierd, though generally fixable but that's too time consuming and not why I shoot film. At this point I'm sure my temps are spot on too. Tank is a basic Patterson and I'm inverting 3x / 45 seconds. This is the 38C development but I get the same results at 25C

Any tips / other things I'm overlooking?

Here's an average example of some fresh Portra 400, nothing like what I get from my lab.

Does your lab scan for you? If so ask them to scan the film that you developed and then you can compare to see where the difference is.
Or scan the film that they developed for you, using the same methodology as you used to scan the above.

What are you using to scan?

It's s scanning issue. If you want lab-like results use silverfast software. What I do is scan in 16 bit and tweak in LR. Much more control than silverfast.

Hi Alex, appreciate the suggestion! I use an old Nikon 8000. Slow but effective. Really so many variables in this whole process, guess that's why I like it Have scanned enough prior roles from my lab though with good results that I think I can rule out the digital transition.

On this last role though I did notice as I got near finishing the scanning, the colors seemed to improve (modestly).
These frames would have been closest to the outside of tank during developing (guess I'm eluding to temp here).
The tank stays in a water bath except when agitating so I'm really pretty certain about the temp but...

Maybe this is isn't even appropriate for the thread, lemme know

Thanks Edward! I would love to try Silverfast, the Vuescan I use is really flaky, sometimes dropping settings and worse. I should at least update it. Generally I can get through a role though. Frankly I wish I could go back to Nikonscan. Maybe next step will be to have the lab scan a role. I do get results I'm reasonably happy with though from my own scanning of lab developed negatives.

Nice colors from the Portra you posted recently btw

Thank you Mark! I used to use silverfast exclusively, but I now prefer the more natural look of Nikon Scan, slightly tweaked in ACR. I find silverfast results to look very lab-like, which is not always a good thing. You can get a free trial for 30 days. By the way, Nikon Scan works on Windows 7. I haven't tried it on more recent OS, but I read that it works with all Windows versions. The trick is not to install the scanner drivers (you will be given the choice during installation) so that the scanner can use the driver from either vuescan or silverfast.

I think you might have to process your film a little longer, the coolscan systems are pretty accurate from my experience. Maybe go into your lab and ask for some tips, im sure they'll be happy to help.

Nice greens Edward. I may have access to an old G4 Macbook that should run Nikonscan. Have to put it on my list of experiments.

Looks great Alex. Scanning with a "camera" seems to work very well, and fast too. I did a bunch this past winter with an M240 / 50 Lux with tubes combo and was very happy with the process.

I haven't done any slide scanning with the Nikon Coolscan V yet, so I gave it a try last night. I think it's much better for slides than my Pacific Imaging scanner.
