    Starting fitlration for printing Kodak BW400CN?

    I have a nice Kodak BW400CN negative that I want to try printing, but haven't a clue what color settings to start out with. Kodak's guide says to use whatever you print Porta with and add 5M. Useless to me as I almost never shoot Portra.

    Anyone print this stuff and have a good start point? I'm printing to Fuji (of course) Crystal Archive type C paper.

    Should I post this in the color forum?
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    So, this is a C41 processed BW neg, but you are going to print it to colour paper? Why?

    It has an orange mask and won't print easily on normal b&w paper.

    I don't have a dichro color head, but BW400CN prints just fine on my condenser Omega D2 enlarger to regular B&W paper, no special treatment needed. You might want to bump up the contrast one filter grade, but even that may not be necessary.
