A friend is shooting an independent film soon. The plan is
for the finished project to be shown in Black and White. I
know that Color neg can be transfered in monochrome. What
are the advantages/disadvantages to shooting with b&w stock?
The ones that come to mind are: processing difficulty for
b+w-- there seem to me to be variable density problems at
time exhibiting as kind of a puddling effect washing
vertically on the film (in the case of 35mm b+w).
