    Has anyone tried to cross-process C-41 BW films (BW400CN, T400CN, XP2, etc) in E-6 chemicals? what are the results like?

    Being an airplane buff I looked up your user name. Mexicana Airlines Airbus 320-231. Stored in 2010. Did you fly it?
    A little off topic but just wondering.

    On flight sim I flew it a lot, but it was my favorite plane of the fleet (after 405 was no longer the retrojet)

    I have seen it done. It's bad for the E6 chemistry I understand, so do it at your own risk. It changed the color of Ilford XP2-Super to making a green positive.

    I'll give it a try once I've done my E6 run then, so if something happens with the chemistry it doesn't affect the remaining films.
