Simply put, I am tired of dust. I’m sure I could solve this, but I really don’t have the time or space to make my own perfectly spotless minilab. I do c41 at home, and I have none of these problems in my scans obviously because of digital ice. but xp2 is wearing on me. Considering just shooting some color neg film but going about with bw in mind...looking for tones, shapes, contrast...you know, all the things you do with black and white typically...and just forget that it’s color. . Then scan it and simply just convert to bw. But do you think it will all essentially look the same as xp2 since it’s c41? I imagine there are differences, but perhaps not as much as between real bw stocks? Anyway, if you have found a color film that looks awesome in black and white please share! My first thought was afga vista or similar, If the lab could do my TriX for me, this wouldn’t be an issue.
