Hi there,
Just joined as a new member after many months of lurking - great Forum!

I've been doing some (micro) shorts on self processed 16mm B&W neg recently, but want to try the same idea on B&W Standard 8 using the same Lomo tank. My 16mm films have processed OK, but with the predictable problems that you'd expect from prcessing 1200' of film in the bathroom. The biggest problem I've had is drying and keeping dust off - very tricky.

The Standard 8 I'm trying is a Cine-X stock from the Widescreen Centre in London. It's reversal stock rated at 200 for daylight, and 160 for tungsten. I'm going to shoot in daylight, then cross process to give a negative that I'll use my home made (Eumig 610) telecine device to convert to an avi.

As far as I understand from the posts here and searching the web, to get this to work I need to allow a one stop drop in the speed (down to 100 asa) to allow for the cross process, then I want to overexpose by 1 stop (as I would normally) = 50 asa.

1. Does that sound right?
2. Any advice on processing times and chemistry?

Thanks for any tips.
Cheers,
Joel
