    4x5 color in Detroit area

    I apologize if this has been answered a dozen times (or a hundred). I'm looking for colour 4x5 sheet film in the Detroit area, in which case, I guess I should say "color" ... I followed some older threads, and ended up with a bunch of broken links to Adray et al. I'm looking for some Ektar (or Portra) for Photostock Rogue next weekend.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    Does Woodward Camera in Birmingham stock 4x5 film? I didn't check when I was there last summer, but I remember that they had a decent selection of roll film in 35mm and 60mm. It's on Woodward between 14 Mile and Lincoln.

    For processing, Titan Lab in Troy gave me good results when I was there...though I did not like their turnaround time one bit.

    I don't think Woodward carries any 4x5, but you could call and find out - http://www.woodwardcamera.com
    You could also try CameraMart in Pontiac too - http://www.cameramartinc.com

    I'd be surprised if you found any in this area though. Pretty slim pickins. I agree with Titan, and I think they are the last man standing in the pro lab market here. They might know who carries 4x5. - http://www.titanphotolab.com

    Thanks, Jeff.
    I just ordered some Fuji from Woodward. Janet was very helpful (and hopeful) on the phone. Hopefully it will be in in time for the Rogue gathering next weekend. (hope to see you there... and sometimes Eva, too))

    I'm also in Lower Michigan, just starting out with 4x5. I've purchased my film so far via the internet. Any labs in the area process 4x5? If not, what pro labs have a good reputation via mail order?

    I've dealt with CameraMart in Pontiac via the phone and Ernest Camera in Port Huron in person. Ernest processes my 645, but I don't think they process 4x5. Who do others in the area use?

    Hopefully this isn't considered a hijack, just expansion?

    Thanks

    Cheers,
    Glad it worked out! I like Woodward Camera and do a lot of business with them.

    We'll be up north next weekend and hopefully will meet up. We've got a couple of friends coming too in fact.

    The previously mentioned Titan in Troy does good work, both black and white and color films from 35mm up to at least 8x10 sheet film. And they will happily process through the mail if you can't come in person.

    Thanks Jeff, sorry I missed you reference to Titan in the earlier post. I'm somewhat familiar with the Big Beaver/Rochester Rd area, and get there occasionally. Looks like I'll have one more reason to make the drive.

    Thank you also Terry, but Titan will me much closer to me than Kalamazoo.

    Hi,

    I am the website administrator and a camera salesperson at Woodward Camera.

    We are currently carrying 4x5 film, mainly Fuji chrome and B&W.

    With the closing of other photography stores in the Metro Detroit area, we are trying to expand what we carry in stock and the help of photographers is always appreciated. If there is a film you like to shoot which we don't have, whether 4x5, 120/220 or 35mm, please let us know. If you use it regularly we will be glad to stock it for you.

    btw - Titan is a great lab. We refer customers to them often for services we don't offer.

    Thanks,
    Dennis
