Beautiful black & white images are yours for the taking with simple, over the counter C41 processing with Kodak BW400CN!
There’s no need to scour the seven seas to get a custom photo lab to develop your black & white images. With Kodak’s BW400CN, you can just go to your corner drugstore, wait about an hour or so, and have your mono images ready! This emulsion offers you the old-school and retro feel of black & white, together with the sheer convenience of negative films. Add to that the versatility of the speedy 400 asa film and you can shoot anywhere with most lighting conditions. When you scan them though, you might get a magenta or brown cast, making it a more vintage sepia tone!
