Kodak Ektar in D-76

I have several rolls of expired Ektar which I want to expose and develop in D-76. Some I want to expose at box speed and others at 400asa. Using D-76 what would be a good starting time to develop at 68 degrees for 100asa and 400asa??

Ektar is a C-41 film. You can not develop it in D-76, which is designed for b&w films.

I have no experience doing it, but I have read of it - here is a link with some samples and general tips.

I want to try developing some old Kodachrome in B&W chemistry - but I guess the remote will be a royal pain.

good luck

Sure you can. I googled it today and found several references to developing Ektar in D-76. I just couldn't find any times listed..

Aye, I googled it as well and just about everyone agreed it was a bad idea. Good luck with the experiment!

I'd go 7 minutes. By the way, you'll be trying to print through an orange mask. Orange = very close to safelight color.

But I'm not everybody and I have seen some very good images from c-41 developed in B&W chemicals.
