Exactly. Find a proper lab that would do it. Where are you located?

Or, if B&W is something you care about going forward, you may want to learn how to process them yourself. It's not too difficult.

yeah..maybe it's time to go forward with the chemicals, it would be very intresting now.

and, a pro guiding hand and assistance from this forum would be much appreciated, but not until i find the lab that can develop it for now.

Herman, i had a similar incident recently.

I went to a semi-pro lab, quite specifically and painstakingly asking in Japanese if they could do b&w. A *week* later i had a call saying they can't do them because they're b&w. It made me go to Tokyo to buy chemicals, tank, clips etc and get involved in the process of my photographs again. I haven't regretted it.

It's hard nowadays finding labs which develop B&W, regardless if it's Neopan, Tri-X or T-Max. Take a look around for a lab which develops B&W film or, as suggested, develop them yourself. If you want to see your photos in a hurry, use Kodak BW400CN next time :)

Be happy it was so cheap when you bought them, but no, it was not cheap because it's a B&W film and cannot be developed at a C-41 lab. It's an awesome film. Look around a bit more, standard B&W is very easy to develop and it's likely someone can do it.
