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. http://www.owenboyd.com/
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.
