    It did happen in a lab in New Zealand when I worked there as a film editor. The DOP on a motion picture threw a couple of rolls of C41 from a still camera in with the rushes ("dailies" to you Yanks) and screwed up their chemistry. Not a small matter when the lab works at such a large scale.

    I have never heard of C-41 messing up the ECN process. It will mess up the ECP process due to the vast differences in emulsions.

    So, I'm surprised at a first. Or, something else may have taken place.

    IDK.

    Is it advisable to change EI or use color filtration when shooting E6 film specifically for the purpose of cross-processing it?

    I tend to under expose

    I ususally underexpose by a 1/2 stop when XPROing E6 films in C-41 - it helps control blown highlights in my experience.

    I found this particularly effective shooting some expired (1995) Ektachrome dupe film (rated iso 25) - but shooting it at 50 seemed better.

    I just got my first roll of expired E6 back from Target. The pictures are all extremely green/yellow tinted. Does this tell me anything about if the film is any good for normal slide processing? I was going to go ahead and roll up the whole bulk roll in canisters, but now I'm worried it's no good.

    It tells you nothing about the quality of the film. This is due to the different color balance and the lack of masking in the Ektachrome. You have to custom print or scan and adjust.

    Or do not cross process.
