SFX is not suficiently IR sensitive to be fogged by machine proscessing/opening the film canister.....the plastic one.... in daylight. Instead of CVS or walgreens which send out to kodak who now prints, crappily I might add, on color paper even for b/w. Find yourself a Walmart. They send out to fuji who still print b/w film on B/W paper.

Ilford SFX is a conventional silver based b&w film. A standard pharmacy or mini-lab uses C-41 process for color film.

Yes, it will completely ruin the outcome.
