    I can't seem to remember what kind of film is the kind you take to get developed and what kind is for developing yourself. Then there's a difference between colored black and white film and regular black and white film. Someone help!

    It's been a while, but i'm 99.96% sure than c-41 film is the color processed black and white film. the rest of it you should be able to process yourself.

    I'm just curious because I just bought some Kodak 400TX black and white negative film and I was wondering if that is something I could get developed or if I should pay to use the community dark room.

    your choice. Theres a lot of technique that goes into developing it, so if you are GOOD at it,it can be really rewarding. On the other hand, if you don't do it often, and have a GOOD lab, thats an easy but expensive solution.

    I had pretty shitty experiences with outsourcing it :hs:

    I developed some film in my class last semester, although I can't remember which film I used when developing and which when getting developed.

    If you have access to a lab and the proper chemcials it's pretty easy to process. I have ran a couple of rolls of it through my OM-2 for my B&W class no problems. That being said I don't really like the look of it that much, I've switched to Ilford HP5 Plus 400 and really like it.

    Usually the color processed B&W film that you see in Wal-Mart and stuff says in tiny print on the back of the box something like "Get processed at any lab".

    Ok, so this is something I should probably either develop myself or take it to an actual photo processing lab (not like Walmart or something)

    Ok cool. Not that I would take it there anyways, but just for example. There's a local place that develops everything
