    ..we would be willing to offer you some process testing. Especially if it is large format you are looking to do..

    ..would say that you won't find a better 'quality' reversal source.
    This would apply to anyone in Europe wanting to test our line. Contact us directly for proper parameters.

    regards.

    The most convenient chemical kits for reversal are made by Tetenal in Germany or other skillful chemists in EU, Those kits would not be imported in US if they are crap. The labs in Germany are not from yesterday and Tetenal are veterans in quality and skills worldwide.
    DR5 as a process is great (hats down to You) but that doesn't mean everything else is crap.
    This thread as far as I see it, concerns Europe.

    I'm also considering starting a professional b&w reversal service Eu-based, exactly as Mr. David Wood did 10+ years ago. Who is interested can contact me personally.

    Mr Wood, your bashing of other forum members is not acceptable.

    And fact is, that it is exactly the oppsite of what you are saying:
    You are permanently trying to steer business away from other international BW reversal labs.
    For years you've had the statement on your website that you are the last quality BW reversal lab in the world.
    And that is absolutely not true, it is a lie.

    And your permanent talk that only you are able to develop BW slides properly, and all other BW slide labs in other countries don't know what they are doing and can't achieve quality....well, no need to further comment that marketing BS.
    I've had films send to you in the past.
    And I've send films to three other BW reversal labs. The results of your competitors have been better.
    And the service has been better, too.

    No.
    There are some differences. Scala is an emulsion modified for reversal processing. More robust (because of the bleach), with a higher silver content and on a clear base.

    Maybe you can come out of the closet and reveal yourself and your credentials . I would be interested in knowing who I am talking too.

    No. There are even some other professional processes out there delivering better quality, e.g. Agenzia Luce in Italy and Mr Wehner in Germany.

    Again wrong. There is for example Agenzia Luce in Italy and Arka in Paris, France. AFAIK there is also one in Australia, too. Agenzia offers almost all BW films as slide, and Arka has recently extended its range of films, too.

    I'd like to add that there's nothing "magic" in b&w reversal. Many formulas have been around for centuries. What one does pay is the work that's behind the curtains, work that is necessary to find the proper parameters for each and every emulsion that can be reversed.

    The dr5 lab

    EST - late 1997. 15yrs.

    In 1999 We spent/invested almost 200K on a custom designed 'dr5' D&D processor. It is capable of producing 100-rolls a day - dr5 itself was created in 1991 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr5_chrome [we didn't list this, an enthused user did]. The process it-self is trade secret, though I will publish it sooner or later.
    There is much competition in Europe but not necessarily consistent quality. We have many clients from Europe for this reason.. A.S - you have no idea what you are getting yourself into. It isn't as easy as easy as saying ' I am going to start a lab today' ... especially, today. hmog

    Proof is in the pudding sir... prove it. put up or shut up.

    I am willing to put dr5 up against any.
    Find a competent 3rd party shooter and I will process my side of the test for free.
    I have offered such testing in the past - funny how everyone seems to chicken out.

    regards.
