    If I am not mistaken, D76 is a B&W film developer and Fuji Supreia is a C41 film stock.

    Is there a particular effect your trying to achive?

    Supreia is a C41 film color film, are you sure it is not another film you are talking about? At least Supreia was a color film when I worked in the photo lab, it was always processed in C41 color chemistry.

    I have not done any cross processing in about 20 years, taken the current stock of chemistry, I don't think my information would be accurate, you might want to do a search on cross process, I know it has been discussed around here quite a few times in the past.

    Since the film is on sale, you won't lose much money by testing a couple of rolls and see what you get by yourself. It's the most reliable way of knowing...

    On the other hand, if you want some really weird effects, you can try developing in D-76 and then in colour dev and blix. This is called film acceleration, you rate the film @ E.I. 800 or something and you get really strange colour effects. Wash well between the two developers.

    Ok, i've done some cross processing of this type, though not with this specific film. Processing times seem to go from 6 minutes to 9 minutes, with 8 being about right for most films.

    I'd try 8 minutes as a starting point, but you'll need to experiment.


    And George, what is this you say abt. film acceleration? Sounds interesting ... do explain, please ...
