Following on from my post about DIY C41 processing, here are some of the results. These were shot on a lightbox and quickly processed in Photoshop to give a usable positive image.
First a roll of standard 35mm colour neg, this came out really well:
Fuji Superia 400
Cropped and processed
Then some half-frames from the Bencini. I was surprised that the film base of the Kodak EPP was still orange, I had expected it to be clear. Looking back at some lab processed E6-in-C41 I can see that it still has a slight tint but less pronounced than my film. Longer in the BLIX might fix that, I will experiment with that next time.

And finally the same film but shot on a 6×6 Bronica.

As a positive
Overall the results are quite pleasing. There’s a very strong blue-green shift which won’t suit some subjects but I rather like it. Fully-corrected the images have a muted palette and lovely grain structure.
