We've got a guy here in LA who processes black and white neg film to a positive (transparency), but it has a pretty large component of brown, depending on which of two developer formulations he uses and on the black and white film used. It's in its infancy, but looks like a pretty nice process, especially for portraits (commercial-type) and fashion. There's also SCALA film, designed specifically to be developed to transparency, but last I checked there were only a few labs in the US capable of developing it. Finally, there was/is a kit for processing TMAX films to transparency -- this from Kodak. david - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
