    I've been trying to find some sort of B&W dias film and discovered that the AGFA Scala is the only one. I want to try some but the processing of one 36-exposure scala film here in oslo costs an amazin $35. This is just to much for one roll of slides and so I am trying to find a cheaper place.

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any mailers I can use to get cheaper processing. I will have to be able to send the mailer from Norway. Does anyone know of any?

    What kind of results would I get if I cross-process C-41 B&W film?

    Can others edit my Photos:

    You can buy a kit that allows you to develop Tmax 100 as positives.

    I've heard that it's quite complicated to develop normal negative film as slide stuff. But I've heard that Ilford Pan F Plus ISO 50 is good for those actions.
    I haven't tried it yet.

    If you decide to do direct positive processing, choose a film that has a clear acetate base rather than an Estar base.
