    B&W reversal development

    So I'm looking into developing movie film, Super 8 and 16mm. Does anyone know how different B&W reversal is from normal B&W negative processing? I do know reversal requires bleach, but does it need different developer and fix than negative?

    So would you recommend the D-19 developer or D94a? Also it seems that I'll have to be mixing a couple of the chemicals, any recommendations on where to purchase the base chemicals?

    No. no need to reinvent the wheel here. follow one of the published methods. ilford has a pdf on the subject as well. formulary, ebay, artcraft all sell chemicals.

    Atari1977: I'd suggest using a silver halide solvent instead in the first developer. But that's just me. The name can be misleading since we use the solvent in such a small quantity that it serves the purpose of render all silver developable. I guarantee that it helps clearing the highlights really well. This can't be obtained with a common developer no matter how powerful. I personally use 1g per 35mm 36exp roll.
