Kodachrome Black and White Developing

With the unfortunate discontinuation of K-14 processing, options are limited for the processing of Kodachrome film. While we cannot process Kodachrome as a color slide film, we can develop it in black-and-white chemistry.  This will result in black-and-white negatives, from which we can make monochrome prints. 

Processing Kodachrome film in black and white chemistry is more labor-intensive than normal film. We charge a fee of $16.00 per roll for processing. We require that this fee be prepaid, and it applies even if the film is blank. This fee does not include any finishing, such as prints, scans, and so forth.

If there are images present, we can print the film as we would any other.  Our machine prints are made on color paper, and thus will have a strong monochromatic blue color cast unique to Kodachrome processed in this manner.  (Any custom enlargements printed in the darkroom would be true black and white.)

Please note that while we are generally successful in salvaging images from such films, the results depend greatly on many factors outside our control (age, storage conditions, etc.), and thus we cannot guarantee any specific results.
 

C-22 Film Developing

The chemicals necessary to develop C-22 film in color have long been commercially unavailable.  We process C-22 film as black-and-white negative film much like the above, and charge $16.00 per roll for processing for most formats. The results are printable as monochrome images.

As above, prepayment for the developing is required, and developing charges apply even if the film is blank.  Though we are generally successful in salvaging images from such films, the results depend greatly on many factors outside our control (age, storage conditions, type of film, etc.); even salvageable images often have a strong color cast.  We cannot guarantee any specific results.
