    Can B&SC41 films be developed at home with a standard B&W development kit?

    Don't know what B&SC41 film is, but by the subjecr, C41, i would have to
    say no. C41 B&W films are dye films and require C41 processing.

    sure you can. i do it all the time. but of course not with the standard C-41
    chemicals, because that would require 6 or 8 different chemicals and water
    temperature accuracy. But the company "Jobo USA" http://www.jobo-usa.com/
    has developed this 3-chemical kit for C-41. It only requires developer,
    bleech, and stabilizer http://www.jobo-usa.com/products/chemc41.htm ... It's
    easy to mix and store at home. Since it's C-41, the water temperature is
    somewhat forgiving, so it would still turn out to be acceptable even if your
    temperature is a little bit off(+/-3¢XC) or even the timing is a little
    off(+/- 15 sec). I buy it at my local store the 1-liter package for $16, it
    can process up to 12 rolls of 120 or 135 at home. You can buy it from B&H
    too. have fun...

    Hmm.. A very strange typo in deed. Thanks for decoding my secret code. :)

    Ok, that's what I thought, but couldn't find any proof.

    Ok, so I need special chems. That's not so bad. This could get me out of a
    bind if I run out of T-Max. Thanks for the good info.

  7. Yes but the contrast and density range will not be the same. you can also
    process colour film, both neg and transparency material in B&W chemicals
    just don't bleach them.
    You can also buy a home colour processing kit, it used to be called
    flexicolour I think and process them the way they are supposed to be.
