    Hey, sorry if this is in the wrong forum(maybe "exposer").

    anyway my question is regarding cross processing different types of film. i have been told by a few people that there are special exposer methods for each type of film. does anyone have some type of chart or guide regarding proper exposer for fuji(provia,sensia, valvia) and kodak films.


    thanks

    Conor,
    I don't know of a guide, I do know that if you take this very inexpensive, yet informative course you will learn how to test films.

    A lot depends on what you want to achieve. In general: If you like the colour casts that some chromes produce then you can rate them at the box speed or even a little faster. If you want saturation and wish to try and tame the colour casts and cross over then you need to test the films and possibly use some on camera filtration.

    Were I able to get to the big TO for the conference I would be in the front row. Life, however, interferes.

    Any chance you might publish your lecture notes in some form?

    I routinely expose EPP at ISO 100 in daylight and cross process.

    It rarely needs any radical filter pack or exposure changes and prints quite well.
