    I learned from a contact I have at Toronto Image Works that because the result of low film volumes and the fact that Kodak is stopping production of E6 chemistry that they will stop processing E6 film in July of this year. So if you need any E6 done do it within the next month or so.

    At the risk of being accused of self-promotion in someone else's thread, there will be an announcement made in the next two months about a new vendor for E-6 processing, based in West Michigan. Apropos of nothing at all...:wink:

    Cool, Kenny!
    I do all my own but there's nothing wrong with having more options at this point.
    I would be interested where you're getting your chemicals an maybe piggy backing on an order. I just got a 3 bath tetenal kit that will last me quite a while but.......

    Yeah, gasoline-powered vehicles are also doomed if you read all the headlines. Here in the very heart of the "green" zone there's exactly one
    service station where you can buy biodiesel, and it's only open about sixteen hours a week. Of course, soon we'll all have electric cars, and
    therefore will need to double the number of dirty coal burning power plants to provide all that extra electricity. ... Just take a deep breath, folks. There are still plenty of places to get E6 done, and updated small batch kits will soon be available from Tetenal if you want to go that way.

    Here in Australia labs are switching to C-Pac chemistry for processing E-6. Fuji make the Hunt chemicals but there are still 3 choices for E-6 processing chemistry once kodak has gone. So don't fear, I'm currently using Fuji but am looking to trial C-pac. There are 2 other labs here using it with good results.
    I figure if we can get it here you can get it there far more easily.

    Thats relatively close to PA, it would beat Walmart processing, which is the only place I can conveniently get E-6 processed.
