Test 6: cross process

There are customers that would like to get their Ektachrome 7280 film processed in C41. Also know as cross process.

I assume that you know that normally 7280 is being processed in E6 chemistry and that C41 is for normal still photo negatives. Processing an E6 film in C41 is called ‘cross-process’ and results are not always even nice. That is why I made this page to give you an idea what you can expect when you start doing this. Think that there’s no way back once processed. All frames on this page are not changed or manipulated in any way. They are all treated the same way.

E6 compared to C41 processing

The purpose of the page is to show differences, it is not about the individual quality of each frame itself. So pay attention on the grain, the sharpness, the colours and the structure please. If you want my opinion? I would not recommend using C41 process for E6 films, since a lot of these effects can be made in a post-production also. (22nd July 2006).
Update 27 August 2006, read here the advise that Kodak gives to their costumers in a PDF file.

Currently ordering films or requesting a development service is not possible due to holidays. The order form will be active again from 10 July 2022. Please don't send any packages to The Hague either now. Thank you for your understanding!
