    What will happen if I shoot Tungsten slides in daylight then have them cross processed? Or it will be the same as daylight slides in daylight and x-processed? Thanks.

    depends upon the which T balanced film. 160T (EPT) will be fairly easily corrected in the darkroom and has moderate contrast (for xprocessed film), RTP will go strongly green with high contrast (like most xprocessed fuji films), EPY has higher contrast and strong blue yellow curve crossover,and the 320T by kodak (EPL?) is low contrast (for xprocessed film), big grain and easily corrected in the darkroom. There is no real significant difference because of the T balance. You will spend more effort correcting the cast's and crossover of xprocessing than filtering out or seeing the T influence.

    Pick a film rate as the box says and bracket in 1/3's 1 1/3 stop over and 2/3 under - - or there about.
