    I would just use the time for Tri-X as a start.

    Or, you could use something like Diafine which recommends the same times
    for most films.

    The big question is still "what are you trying to accomplish?"

    If you simply develop and fix a color neg or E-6 film in B&W chemicals you will not end up with printable negatives. All of the color dye layers will still be present and will still be rather opaque.

    Any color film can be developed in a B&W developer to yield a B&W negative image.

    See:
    C-41 process - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ... section under "Cross processing"

    Here are some C41/B&W example photos:

    If you'll note the last paragraph in the "cross processing" section it states:

    "C41 film can be processed in standard black and white chemicals, to produce a monochrome negative image. The negatives will typically be of very low contrast, and cloudy, partly caused by the orange mask."

    The cloudiness they refer to is a result of the residual unremoved dye components in the unexposed portions of the image remaining in the emulsion. Simple fixing does not remove these effectively. The bleach step in the color process is the step that clears the uncoupled dyes; a step missing when using conventional B&W chemistry.

    I think what is trying to be accomplished here is absolutely nothing. Ruined roll. Always wanted to try it out. Let's just see what the heck happens. Why not. Go for it. My signature on another forum says 'Oh, and . . . HAVE SOME FUN ALREADY'. I've started screwing around with stuff just to see what happens. I've spent a lot of time on the technical hook. For a while I'm embracing the nonsense. Can't do it, bull. I'm having fun. The magazine is going great. One of these days I'm gonna get around to printing. I love my family, my job and my life.

    I'M HAVING FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Besides, if they're looking at me weird, I'm probably doing something right.

    My post was simply a reply to your post in which you stated that
    developing color print film with B&W developer will not produce a printable
    negative
    . It may not be pretty but it will produce a printable negative and
    I gave a link to some examples. I'm aware of the contrast and orange
    mask and dye issues with color film however doing this with B&W C-41 films such
    as Ilford XP-2 gives much better results.

    I'll soon be devoloping some c-41 rolls in hc-110. A fresh roll of gold 800, expired gold 200 and 400, memories 200, expired samsung 200, and possibly a very old kodak instamatic propitary cartrige of film.

    Yup lots of rolls, most of em shot in my lomo cameras. If I get decent results, I may just continue using .99c store film in my Diana and devoloping them in black and white chems.
