    Why not try? I'm sure the color balance will be off somewhat. If you don't want to pay for processing for off balanced film, then shoot subject matter intended for weird colors and cross-process the rolls (in C-41). Might get some neat effects! Just a thought.

    Film is so cheap now (if you go to the right places) why bother, just throw it away.

    If you want, send it to me and I'll try it out for you and let you know if it was worth it.

    If you routinely scan your negs, go for it. If you're an adventurous soul, go for it. If you're a boring sod like me, toss 'em in the crapper and move on.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
