Sepia Black and White Slide Processing


Want antique looking slides from your black and white film? Send your roll to be processed by the lab!

The dr5-chrome lab in Denver, CO, USA is a full service private lab that pays very close attention to detail. I have always been impressed with the results they are able to attain with my negatives. The service that I enjoy most is their black and white chrome dr5 dev-2 sepia process.

It is so very easy to use. Just go to their web site and use one of their suggested black and white films. Expose the film using the ISO they recommend. Fill out the order form on their web site and mail them your film.

What you get back from them is a SLIDE from your black and white film, NOT a negative. The slide is very easy to scan. The tonal detail is amazing. I can’t rave enough about the results. Although I have used the dev-1 (greyscale) process, I love the look of the dev-2 sepia sides the most.

I am always on the lookout for alternative processing methods and for my money, dr5 sepia processing is one of the best I have found.
