Tips for Grading 16MM B+W

I don't think there's anything you need to do differently when digitally grading B&W originated film. If anything, it should be easier as you only have to worry about contrast.

 

The only complication I can think of would be dealing with the inherent contrast in 7266 Tri-X reversal stock, but that's not a problem specific to B&W or 16mm.

Well, that's odd. Not sure how it could be the film itself if you shot B&W film stock. I would think just taking the saturation down to 0 would be the quickest fix.

 

When I've had B&W film scanned in the past, it came back as Prores 4444 with only the Y-channel (luminance). So there was no RGB at all in the Resolve scopes.
