    Does anyone know of any minilabs in Vancouver or even BC who still print your 4x6s or 5x7s optically? It would be interesting to compare otherwise identical prints, and one of my coworkers does not like the idea of her negatives being printed from a scan. Even pro-labs who make optical proof prints for reasonable prices would be useful. Thanks again for the help!

    Fotofun in New Westminster will do machine enlargements optically (up to 8x12).

    If I read ABC Photocolour's website correctly, I believe they do machine prints optically as well.

    Here is the page from G. King Photo's price list that indicate they still do proofs that way:
