Given aload of Kodachrome super 8 film - reversal processing as b/w?
Hello guys! I have been given aloud do Kodachrome super 8 and a super 8 camera as a gift the flm having expired in 96. However I am not sure where to start with reversal processing as a black and white positive.
I know I need to remove the remjet layer after processing I have it thought out how to develop it (first developer, bleach, wash, reexpose to light, redevelop, wash and fix then remove the remjet layer. However I am facing a dilemma with a reversal bleach. I do not want to use chromium / sulfuric acid based, I don't like the thought of handling it. Are there any alternatives I can buy the raw chemicals for, or one premade?
Also if I am using the Kodachrome is there anything else I need to be aware of? I am not looking for top quality I am looking for a grainy result! Gonna shoot a silent horror movie and want the most grainy muddy result I can get while it still being watchable.
It is Kodachrome 40 type A.
Any advice would be appreciated! I have searched for hours on b/w reversal as I didn't want to make a new topic, but can't find much alternative and also if there is something I have missed,
