Cross Processing

Cross processing (sometimes abbreviated to X-pro) is the procedure of deliberately processing film in a chemicals intended for a different type of film. The two main methods of cross processing involve developing a slide film in C41, or colour negative film in E6. The result is an unpredictable range of colours, and is often used by Lomographers.

I organise my cross processing experiments with the term "XPRO n", where n is the experiment number, a bit like how I organise my other processed films. Interestingly enough, I published XPRO 1 around the same time the Fuji XPRO-1 was announced, so quite a lot of page views came from people wanting to look at sample images from that camera.
