    I 've tried the Foma Kit (which seems identical to the Ilford process) with both Fomapan 100 R and agfa scala 200x films. There results where great. Here is an example http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2536/...16b772f5_o.jpg of scala and another one of Fomapan 100R http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2526/...e9aba9f0_o.jpg
    It's quite time consuming process (I need at least 1 hour per run) but it works.

    Anyone have any idea what would happen if you ran B&W through traditional E-6 process but at 68ºF?

    Withe a conventional B&W film, you'd end up with a clear strip of film.
    Normal E-6 processing removes all silver from the film leaving the dye image, but there are no dye couplers in a standard B&W film.

    (There's another thread about chromogenic (C-41) B&W in E6.)

    You may help this link: http://www.photosensitive.ca/wp/meth...cing-bw-slides.
    I have been testing the process reversible b&w on various types of films. Negative, positive and positive after the white / black. Many tests done on expired film for 10 to 20 years.
    270 reversible black / white negative film photography made Azo (expired some eight years) in the process reversible b&w. http://www.dump.ro/imagini/270-rever...-azo-jpg/11107
    336 Dup Positivfilm DP 3 is a picture make with Dup Positivfilm DP 3 (Orwo - expired about 20 years) worked in the process reversible b&w.

    335 dup scris is a picture make with Dup Positivfilm DP 3 (Orwo fresh) processing in negative process b&w. http://www.dump.ro/imagini/335-dup-scris-jpg/10191
    I am attracted to high-quality images. I did test positive film b&w. The reversible process we have not reached notable results with positive b&w. I like the pictures you've made with positive b&w (print). Negative b&w process. 319b N positive. http://www.dump.ro/imagini/319b-n-pozitiv-jpg/11104

    When I used the Kodak Direct Positive kit with Panatomic-X years ago I used a regular ss tank/reel set.

    only '1' dr5

    ..there is only "1" dr5 processing and it is in Denver CO.
    No such other dr5 entity exists. dr5 is proprietary and is protected by trade secret.

    Thanks

    P.S. I remember seeing a thread on this somewhere but I can't find it at all.

    There are a number of labs around the world offering alternative services to dr5 but at a low level of through put, or alongside volumes of motion picture processing. In general they aren't interested in handling the odd few films from individuals and can't handle all formats anyway.

    dr5 is currently the only lab who offer a realistic, dedicated B&W reversal service across formats, and with good knowledge of a wide range of films. I'm currently working with a London based lab who may begin offering a limited service next year, but they aren't interested in providing the kind of all round service David offers there's just not enough demand. They have 2 or 3 clients interested who need a fast 24hr max turnaround for commercial reasons.

    It's highly unlikely anyone else will be prepared to invest the money required for research & equipment to compete with dr5, there's more users of Kodachrome than B&W reversal and that only needs one lab for worlwide processing.

    ..for Ian & those other tech heads interested

    ..the attached is a snapshot of the dr5 processor [bad as it my be].
    It is one of a kind made to my spec's. It is computer driven and able to be completely controlled by the front panel once the film is loaded. ..it's basically a manual automatic. The average roll [example = scala, FP4] is 2.75 hrs dry to dry. The processor is 18 tanks long. It has 4 lifts and 2 transports.
    Though I don't process film as it comes in anymore [since last year], I can run 80-100 rolls a day if I had to. My colleagues call me crazy but the image quality is well worth the sacrifice. ..most of my clients would also agree.

    Thanks David, I'd seen similar photos before but it shows why it's unrealistic for any one to think about competing at a similar level. It just wouldn't be viable.
