    Develop Print and Slide film in C41 together

    Assuming that I'm not going to replenish any chemistry, is there any reason I cannot load a roll of color print film in my Jobo and load a roll of slide film to be cross-processed at the same time in the same tank? Maybe it works great and that's why no one's asked before, but I figured I'd run it past the forum first.

    Thanks,
    Jonathan

    I have done this many times. No problems whatsoever. E-6 film is very safe for C-41 chemicals.

    When putting C-41 film in E-6 chemicals, however, I believe Kodak recommends that no more than 5% of the total film volume through the chemicals be C-41 film. This means that mixing C-41 and E-6 films in a hand tank with the E-6 process is not recommended (unless you have a 20 roll tank or larger, of course).
