X-pro The Other Way


All of us know (more or less) what comes out of a slide film when submerged in C-41. But what about cross processing the other way?

A colour negative film processed in E-6! I know this is to some a very rare thing to see since not all photolabs are willing to do it for you and when they do, there’s only a slim chance of having successful results. Thankfully, my roll of Fuji Superia 200 which was loaded in my Supersampler worked with the slide chemistry and I am seriously loving it! It gave my shots a total new atmosphere with hues of yellow, green, rusty, pale, something vintage-look!

You guys should really try this!

    nice pics and great colors ! actually I had the same idea and asked my lab about doing a x-pro the other way a few weeks ago and they said they would do it. so i think i'll try too sooner or later...

    Nice results. The main problem of making the x-pro using the E-6 process is the price.

    There's no reason why cross processing c41 in e6 should ever go wrong, as long as you remember that you have to push 2-3 stops to increase the contrast!

    I agree with eggzakly. If you compensate it should be fine. These are some great shots. I heard more professional photographers xpro this way because if you know what you are doing you get more controlled results. Not sure if there is any truth to that though.

    Wow, that's so cool! I had no idea this was possible.

    Tipster: DIY X-Pro Redscale

    Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.
