You can, but I doubt the tonality will look good coming from color negative original. If you need to go to B&W from color negative, it's best probably to scan and convert in the computer. But I think it might not be easy to find a lab to do a real B&W filmout. Best option is to shoot B&W camera original if you want a B&W print.

One more thing. 7222 is a camera film stock. It's not designed for projection. It's probably not as tough as a print stock, and the whites will not be clear white. Even the perforations may be designed for cameras and not projectors.

Several issues here, printing colour negative to B&W stock.
1. normal B&W print stock is orthochromatic, sensitive to blue only, not good for colour negative.
2. 7222 would be unsuitable due to low gamma (0.65) you need about 2.30.
3. 7222 has a grey base
4. most suitable for direct positive print would be sound recording stock such as ST8, still with grey base and non-straight density curve
5. official way to do Colour negative to B&W print traditionally: make colour intermediate positive, then panchromatic B&W duplicate negative 7234 if you can find it, from there normal prints on B&W print stock.

I better plan on using lots of light and stick with 7222.
