Why would you want to? You can scan the transparency for publication with great results and there are plenty of good negatives films available.

I probably wouldn't want to because of the cost. One reason would be that I don't scan, just print. But I was mainly curious. Since the figures were there, *someone* must have wanted to try, at least.

I noticed in the Massive Dev Chart at http://www.digitaltruth.com/devchart.html that it is possible to produce negatives from AGFA Scala film. I'm just curious, has anyone tried this? And if so, with what results?

A friend and I shot Scala and APX 100 side by side recently both using 80/2.8 zeiss planars on different makes of camera. After comparing the results on the light table we concluded that grain and sharpness are *very* similar. If you want something close to scala as a negative film try apx. Rumours have it that it is the same emulsion on a clear base.

I've heard the other way around that you can make mono slides from FP4 with some sort of chemical.
Does anybody know how?

If Agfa really stops producing Scala at some point, I will need an alternative!

there was an article by Michael Maunder in the previous issue of AG about making slides from tech pan. Michael makes a chemical set called "Celer Reverser"and it is described at at www.speedibrews.co.uk although i'm not sure that he sells them through his website.

Just about any conventional b&w negative film can be reversal processed to produce a transparency. The color in the film base used for negative films is a problem. You end up with a blue grey or lavender base color in your transparencies. Film made for reversal has a clear base.
