    Hello, I'm moving to Taiwan soon and am curious if anyone has had any luck processing MF and LF sheet film(4x5) in Taiwan? Shooting both b&w and c-41. I'd also be interested in meeting up too.

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Don't know about Taiwan, but at least there's the possibility of mail service by ColorSix in Hong Kong. Last august they still did C41, E6 (at least up to 4x5) and BW (in D76).

    Thanks Lionel. That looks like a good option if nothing is in Taiwan.

    You're welcome. Unfortunately, ColorSix don't process 4x5 in C41, but you can still use them for mindblowing 4x5 color slides! I hear C41 is quite easily managable to process at home though.

    Really? That would be great. I've processed b&w and c-41 with a jobo before but never c-41. I had assumed c-41 is just as hard as e-6, water temp has to be spot on. I'd really only have access to a tray setup where I'm going. Have you processed c-41 before?
