I have a few boxes of this, have looked everywhere for a guide ISO for shooting it for cross processing it in E6, anyone know?
I'm assuming about ISO 25

I've lost track of the numbers. Don't recall which one is 4111

These on VPS which I believe is 4106. Cross-processed E-6.

First: f8 @ 300 sec, sky-light was eV 3-4

Second: f2.8 @ 1/8 sec (quadruple exposure, i.e., 4 successive exposures at 1/8 sec.) Done on a Widelux 1500 where 1/8 sec is the slowest speed. So I often do multiples with it.

I spot-metered the neon lights and they varied between eV 7-11.

Hope this info helps. Might be a good place to start.

4111 was a tungsten-balanced film for making positive transparencies from color negatives. It was discontinued 7 or 8 years ago; unfortunately we found that the dyes are not stable and even kept at 0F, an outdated, unexposed/processed sheet will show a cyan shift (from neutral). So you can try it, but afaik there are no guidelines or guarantees. It's slower than color paper when processed in C-41; we used it under an enlarger so I wouldn't want to guess its camera speed. Best of luck... you could get something interesting.

I've had quite a large stock supply of it that I acquired for next to nothing. Kodak Support advised that it's ISO 8. That seems to work fine for me but as mentioned by others -there is a huge color shift that makes even color correction impossible. I've developed C41 and E6. I've not yet found a consistent process to play around with but often I'll shoot a sheet of it in addition to a sheet of "normal" film so that I don't lose the shot. :)
