    I'm seeing $28, still cheap though. If anyone else has used this lab, I'd like to hear about it. I want to be absolutely sure that my money isn't wasted, and as they say, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

    If that's true, it would be the biggest rip-off, almost unspeakable as a crime to photographers, ever heard of in Ciba/Ilfochrome printing. Down here in Australia the most it's ever costed is: AUD$20 set up (masking etc.), AUD$57 1-2, AUD$41.00 3>). It isn't difficult to extrapolate to USD. My printer has four decades of experience so I would really, really question the price being charged for that 8x10. Obscene.

    It looks to me that this is for exhibition quality custom printing that can/will include custom masking. It isn't cheap in any way, but it may very well be of sufficient quality to be worth considering at $285.00 (for the first print at least).

    What!? "...exhibition quality..." That's what Cibas are renowned for. You don't buy them to be used as place mats on the kitchen table.

    Exhibition quality Ciba printing to my specifications has always included:
    • Custom masking
    • Colour grading and correction
    • Contrast stats (often 2 same size prints with varied contrast to the first off).
    • Printer's spec record
    • Certificate of Authenticity

    My printer expects the photographer (not just me) to present him with detailed technical specifications for printing; in my case, it is just a correction to filtration (too warm or too blue or neutralise either). I don't bother with trannies that are close to the edge contrast-wise.

    Anyway, the price of US$285 remains manifestly excessive for 8x10" and I'd love to know on what grounds he could be charged that for such a small print. The same amount of money (a little higher here with the exchange rate) would buy three 30x40cm Cibas (a bit over $300 with insured freight added).

    I used BPD Photech in April of last year (my only Ciba experience so far). Very responsive to emails/questions and a decent turnaround time too. The results look great to my eyes (although, as I said, I have no other reference!)

    Just an update for those who happen on this forum still looking for Cibachrome printing; as of Feb 2010 Chromacolour will close its doors. The very professional Peter has suggested Sandy Barnard from http://www.sandyprints.com.au one of the few remaining practitioners in Australia.

    Visual-imaging lab...slide thieves!

    Just wondering if anyone is using this lab? Visual imaging in Wyoming I sent off some very precious kodachromes of mine for ilfochrome prints in December '09. The slides were sent with a delivery conformation so I know they got there but it's now 5 months later and I have heard nothing ! I've emailed and left phone messages repeatedly with them to find out what has happened, and I have recieved absolutly no response to anything. I put in a complaint with the BBB and they were unable to get a response either. All I want are my slides returned at this point. So I'm wondering if anyone is using this lab? Are they still in business? And if anyone is thinking about using them in the future I suggest finding a different lab.
    Thanks for any replies.

    I just dropped in some B&W and colour slides to Stephen Frizza @ the lighthouse lab today. Perfect - only 5 mins drive from my office.

    Looking forward to seeing the results
