    Color print film in Diafine

    I have a roll of color print film that I burned testing a camera, but I want to develop it. I was considering using it as a cross-processing experiment. To the best of my knowledge, developing C41 film in B&W chemicals results in a black-and-white negative, but I don't know what time to use, so I figured I could just use Diafine. Will this result in a printable neg?
    f/22 and be there.

    If you process C41 color neg film in Diafine you'll get a barely printable image. If you scan them, you may get decent results. The orange base of the film will royally screw up anything you thought you knew about printing. How do I know? I've tried it. Especially the highlights are tough to do anything with.
    Lith printing might work better. But scanning really is the way to go in my experience.

    You can process C41 film in a B&W dev, and fix, wash well and re-halogenate in a Ferricyanide/Bromide bleach, wash then re-develop in C41 chemistry as per normal.

    Depending on the B&W dev you use you can get some quite interesting results.

    Diafine, an Epson 4990 and an HP printer works. I have held the prints. Very nice.
