    I've been shooting Fujichrome for quite a while and have always used their mailers for processing.

    I just got this notice with my latest batch of slides....

    I'm not surprised. I think we are going to see more consolidation in the future for film processing. Personally, Calypso Imaging gets all my E6 work.

    So now I only need to make up one address label, whether it's Kodachrome or E6!

    Hi Earl (Trius),

    Yes, as Monty Python would say:

    "Always look on the bright side of life!" :D

    BTW: I'll let you pass word on to our old friends on the other channel - I'm not allowed there anymore.

    Regards (and where's my cheese? :smile: ).
    George

    Is that PO Box 637 or 837?

    Thanks for the heads up....I usually send a batch of 8-10 rolls at a time, had them ready to send to az or wherever it was....I hope Dwaynes stays in business. I also noticed the price of A&I mailers on B&H took a jump in price, at least from what i recall. Tom in Seattle

    Hmmmm ... interesting.

    Dwayne's does a very good job with Kodachrome. I may just try them when I next shoot E6 film. Although I seldom shoot it, when I do I take it to a local lab that does daily runs of E6 processing, and I have no complaints. (It is very convenient to drop off over lunch and pick up on the way home.) :smile:

    I've been told that Walmart and similar outlets will send their Kodachrome to Dwaynes, but only charge something like $4.77 a roll, which is damn hard to beat. (The only reason I haven't used that service myself, apart from not living near a Walmart, is that I have beat the price, by stocking up on a pile of mailers at a price that would make a peach blush. When they're gone, I'll be off to Walmart. I've also got a pile of A&I mailers I bought for Kodachrome processing, but only got to send them a dozen rolls or so before they threw in the rag. [insert sound of few remaining hairs being pulled out])

    I just got back three rolls from Dwayne's/Fuji mailers. There were all scratched and had tons of dust. I'm kinda pissed cos I just bought 30 of the mailers. Kinda shitty QC, if you ask me. Most of the slides had at least three to four long horizontal scratches and major dust spots/scratches.

    It's $4.88 for a 36 exp roll and 3.88 for a 24 exp roll. for both E-6 and K-14.
