It looks like N&T may have deleted their blog posts promoting the use of RA-4 developer in place of ECN2 (probably because they now sell the ECN2 kits). However they do sell 1Litre kits of RA-4...

So far I've used the Bellini C41 kits. However, some time ago N&T mentioned in their blog that RA-4 developer gives very similar results to the proper ECN2 developer, so I shall give that a try soon.

Hi Mike, Yes I was using a warming filter, but it would have been fine without one on this occasion. The blueness is really not that pronounced in direct sunlight anyway.

Hi, that has been my conclusion, although it backfired recently. The ambient temperature was so high that the developer ended up too warm, and the negatives were 'a little dense'!

Hi John, this is exactly what I do, but there is still a measurable temperature drop in the developer temperature. However you wouldn't have the opportunity to measure it in a Job processor.
