Developing color film C-41 with Black and White chemicals. HC-110

Post by Juan Galán » Mon Mar 25, 2019 2:54 am

Hello everyone!!

I am new in the forum and I might need some help from experts in this topic.

I have a lot of old exposed C-41 film and instead of developing as a regular color process I am considering do it with B&W chemicals, specifically with HC-110

I have read in internet that many people have done this process even some labs is what they follow to rescue the expired exposed film. The thing is that I have not found a guide to do it and how to proceed:

- HC-110 dilution?
- Pre-wash first?
- Developing and fixer time?
- Bleaching?
- Temperature? some say 30° C. and others 20° C

I read that H dilution (HC-110) is the best: 1+63 with 11º developing time but not sure about this....

Please, anyone that could help me with this I would really appreciate it...

Thanks in advance!
