    Hi Guys- I am looking for some labs that will make me 8X10s from my 120 Ektachromes for under $7 but ones that are still pretty good. I know you usually get what you pay for but these don't have to be amazing. Thanks.

    hello


    Do it yourself: get a jobo tank, get a large tray for water jacket, get a tetenal or fuji 3 bath kit, and follow instructions, it´s foolproof and really cheap, even more if you start doing your own chemistry!

    I would but most of the work I am looking to print is 120 Ektachrome and that is not cheap at all.

    You have 3 options:
    1. Ilfochrome, probably not
    2. Internegative, great fun, but also probably not
    3. Scan and send off for proof prints. I recommend the third if you just need proofs.

    If you're prepared to post your slides overseas, BPD Photech in the UK will do 10x8 Ilfochromes for £6.20 ($9.60). A little above your maximum, but they might offer a discount for a large order.

    While it may seem heresy, IMO the best way to work with slides it to take them straight into Hybrid processes. Find someone local with a good scanner, and take a trip to Costco.
