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.

    wonderful!
    Maybe I try this with a film I have in my Pop 9 for ages now then I won't be dissapointed when the results aren't that good.

    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.
