    Is there any places that can make large prints from transparencies taken with an xpan camera ? There is no places in Denmark. Only print from a scanned file.

    Hello, the only place I have seen mention Xpan printing is this site. Perhaps you could contact them for more info on their printing.

    Why can't you just put the chrome into a large carrier and print Ilfo? Is there some special xpan carrier you have to use?

    I dont have any darkroom here, and even the Pro shops cant print them. I dont know if You need special adapters or not.

    There's really no lab in Denmark that prints Ilfochrome?

    That's sad.

    Try Owen Boyd in the UK

    One of the last places hand-printing Ilfochromes in the UK. Happy with any size of trannie so far as I know. Always been pleased with the work I had from him. He is also happy to chat on the phone about your requirements.

    Peak Imaging offer an XPAN package - I believe it is from scans during development, but I could be wrong. It is not Ilfochrome. But I use them for my 35mm and 120 development and am pleased with the results.

    Do give Owen a try, as we need to give these Ilfochrome printers all the business we can!

    Hope that helps.
