C-41 Processing of Color Slide Film


What color slide film can be processed C-41 creating dramatic color shifts? I worked at a local lab a few years ago and had some photography students bring in slide film to be processed C-41 and I can't remember which type of film it was. Please help me, this is driving me crazy...:(

Any E-6 process slide film can be cross-processed in C-41. The effect varies by specific film.

Jan K. VanLeer   Thanks much Jon - I appreciate your time. :) I just shot a roll of Astia just to see what results I get? Now I can have it processed today. I remember that the results that I saw from others' film I wasn't crazy about, but I also didn't know what shooting situations they started with. Just want to play :]

Thanks to Jon, I cross-processed a roll of Astia(E-6) slides in a C-41 processor. As I work in a 1-hr lab, I called Fuji Chemical Specialists who informed me that doing this would not in any way contaminate the C41 procesor. I am sharing my results for anyone who might be interested? One note, the final product is a negative film image, not a slide transparency. Warm regards, jan
