ECN-2 Processing & Scanning Services
Eastman Color Negative (ECN) is a photographic processing system created by Kodak in the 1950s for the development of mono-pack color negative motion picture film stock. The original process, known as ECN-1, was used from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, and involved development at approximately 25°C for 7-9 minutes.
It was later discovered that there was a faster development and environmentally friendlier film process (and thus a quicker photo lab turnaround time). This new development process is known as ECN-2 and it is the standard development process for all modern motion picture color negative developing. This film was originally intended for motion picture cameras. It cannot be machine processed since it has a REMJET coating (a black carbon layer which protects the film as it travels through the camera at high speeds). Therefore, it is cross-processed in C-41 such as KODAK 320T, 500T, 50D, 250D (for more information, visit our film processing page).
DISCLAIMER: All ECN-2 film is processed in a rotary processor and the Remjet layer is removed manually. Due to the nature of this the film scans may show imperfections such a residual Remjet spots, scratches and/or streaks from drying.
