    Slides from Adox CMS 20?

    Dr5 labs says it can't be done. But Adox says it can. Which is it? Also, might there be another process to get slides from CMS 20 besides dr5?

    It's the second.
    Any b&w film can be reversed in theory, in practice the outcome will vary.
    But you have to experiment by yourself.

    You could try the Foma kit, but Fotoimpex (Adox) do say the film needs processing in their low contrast developer Adotech.

    There are plenty of published reversal formulae but you would need to change the first developer to tame the contrast of the film. Usually B&W reversal processing uses higher contrast first developers than standard negative processing.

    I'm sure David Woods could reversal process CMS 20 but the low demand probably wouldn't make it worth his while doing the necessary tests etc, and then it would most probably have to be done by hand, not through his processing line.

    So your best bet is DIY

    They may actually both be right. Dr5 uses a specific process, so if the results with their process are not good, then they would say it can't be done. Adox may have tried a different process that worked well with this film, so they are also right.
