Hello,

 

I want to know if is possible to process 16 mm color negative in a small lab? Last week I  have tryed to process some B&W super 8 reversal film and it worked.

 

I use a Lomo tank to do it. And now I want to make some experiments with 16 mm color negative. Can process some 16 mm expired film in a Lomo Tank? And if it is possible, how is the better way to do it?

 

Thanks a lot

Color negative motion picture stock has a "remjet" carbon coating for anti-halation / anti-static purposes that has to be removed before development.

Hi David,

 

Thanks for answer me back. So Should I "remjet" as a first step of the porcess?

 

Thanks a lot.

See:

 

Yes, it's the first step before actual processing, otherwise you get a mess of black carbon in your developer.

You may be aware of this, but I'd add that as the colour process is much hotter, going straight from 39C to cold water may reticulate the film. Bring the temperature down gradually with intermediate rinses of progressively cooler water.

Edit: in Brazil your tap water may be warm enough anyway!
