    i picked up 3 rolls of elite chrome 100 for 99 cents. They were expired in 2001.
    i'd like to have some fun with them and cross process in c-41. Any reccomendations on what ISO to use?

    Ummm...100?

    It's not like you're reversal processing it, so there will be latitude.

    I got nice pictures with a fresh roll when I used 50-100. Expired might give different results.

    good luck

    Looks like i will have to sacrifice a roll to figure it out.

    You need to bracket wildly!

    100 speed, 2001, I bet if shot at 100 you'd scarcely notice a difference. As E6, the slight underexposure of any lost speed would probably be perfect.

    For C-41 try shooting it at 75, but I don't think it'll be too radically different in the 50-100 range.. but what do I know!! :wink:
