Thread: C-41 Processing

  1. #1

    Default C-41 Processing

    Hi everyone..

    I recently came across some brilliant pictures which were said to be processed in C-41.

    Well... wat's that? Anybody can offer some helpin this area?

    Will colour film processed in C-41 come out different from a B/W filem processed in c-41?

    How expensive is it?

    Thank you...

    C-41 is the developing and fixing process for colour negatives. All labs use this process for colour negetives (ie. you get this at ur neighbourhood lab and even the professional ones). Cost? $3 for film developing and $0.35 per pc for printing 4R.

    B&W uses another process (can't remember the process name). Unless you are using C-41 B&W negative like the Kodak T400CN

    Colour slides uses E-6 processing.

    It is just that different chemicals are used during processing. Different film uses different chemicals, thus different processing.

    I heard there's another hybrid: Cross-processing. But I know only slides can cross-process. Meaning Slides processed in C-41 way.

    Has anyone done this? How does it look like or turn out? :P
