    HP5 in C-41???

    I dropped a roll of HP5 at the local film shop and forgot to specify B&W processing...most of those places automatically print everything C-41 unless you tell them otherwise...

    What do you think will be the result? I'm imagining completely opaque film of fogged images...

    I'm praying that the technician sees the Ilford cassette and says, "stupid customer..." and processes properly anyway...

    Any ideas? Ican't wait to get my darkroom set up...

    <still banging forehed with palm of hand>

    Joey,
    HP5+ is a common enough film so they should notice unless they are illiterate. If they don't and they are then alas it will be mush and you will only get plastic back. Fingers crossed they can read. Sorry but you won't be the first or even the last.

    If they soup it in c41 you will have a very clear strip of celluloid. The bleach will remove everything.

    I've already tried the phone... they're closed for the day. I'll be on them first thin tomarrow..

    I really didn't notice until I found the Kodak roll that I thought was in the processing envelope, smiling at me from the bottom of my camera bag, today....aaargh!

    Good luck Joey, it will at least be a good test of how good the service is at your lab. As I said fingers crossed it works out OK and let us know at the weekend. All the best Tony

    I got lucky. Film was developed properly despite my best efforts to the contrary.

    My disappointment in the photos can now only be attributed to my own lack of expertise...not the developer's....

    Great to hear everything worked out Joey

    Seem to remember that someone asked what happens if you want a film cross-processed by a lab (one of the posting lost moving to our new home). The answer is it should be a special processing instruction on the envelope and usually you pay extra for the privilege. Otherwise they should just process it in the correct soup and print as standard, which is what they did here.
