    Cross Processing at Jessops

    So, i've been shooting some E-6, and was wondering, if jessops would process it as C-41 film, to get the look i'm looking for. Also, i haven't had any concrete information on this, but it would still come out as slide film, just with more contrast, right?

    And would they charge me for E-6 (£8.99) or for C-41 (£3.99)?

    Considering they know me there, (and were happy to put my C-41 straight through whilst I waited, considerably undercutting their 1/2 hour photos promise) do you reckon they'd do it?

    Thanks, Milkplus.

    If you know them, why not ask them?

    I've always found Jessops very helpful, particularly if you choose a quiet time (not Saturday mornings!).

    No it doesnt come out as slide film, it comes out as negative film, although with different effects. I dont know about Jessops, but many places do it, and should charge same as C41.

    You'll have to ask - where I am some of the 1-hr chains are pretty picky about only developing film that has "c-41" printed on the canister, and will refuse to process anything else (but some will process things like bulk-rolls without issue).

    Also, here a lot of places charge an extra fee for xpro, which makes no sense at all, as they don't have to do anything differently and it has no adverse effect on their chemistry.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    I'va taken E6 films to tesco before. Because the person there didn't know the difference between E6 and C41, it was never questioned, but she did mention that the negs were a funny blue purple instead of orange, when I came to collect them.

    I took some slide film to a local independent shop last year, they were happy to x process but when I went to collect them they said that the digital printer could print from them, so I paid for processing and prints and only got processing.

    Geoff, did you get prints from Tesco?

    £8.99 sounds like a very expensive E6 service.

    I guess they send away because I doubt they have a precessor for E6 in the shop so you might aswell send direct to someone like:

    www.palmlabs.co.uk

    Also, Palm use "dip and dunk" processors (for both E6 and C41), whereas a lot of labs use roller transport. The former is generally considered superior.

    "Would Jessops staff know what crossed processing is, or would they look at you as if you were a dangerous lunatic when you explained ?
