    Not really. With any negative film (traditional B&W, C-41 B&W, or color), the color you see in a scan or print on color paper is the result of how the color is balanced when doing the scanning or printing. You can get a sepia cast from Kodak BW400CN processed the "right" way (in C-41 chemistry) or from a traditional B&W film -- or you can eliminate the cast entirely in various ways. The scanning software use (VueScan) has a B&W scanning option; scan a negative with that and you get a B&W scan with no cast, even if the negative was a color negative. You can desaturate an existing scan in a photo-editing program, too. You can make a traditional print on traditional B&W paper, in which case any cast in the negative becomes irrelevant to the final print color. (A deep cast in the negative could necessitate long exposures and complicate contrast adjustments with variable contrast paper, though.) You might even be able to make a nearly neutral print on color paper by using appropriate filtration.

    Yeah, but I'm talking about mini-lab processing. Cause all other rolls of BW400CN I've had the lab to process and print has turned out completely B&W. Still, I like it better this way. ^^
