    Lab to send fuji quickloads

    I shot my first bits of 4x5 this week, and now I have realized I don't know where to send them. Who do you recommend for 4x5 quickloads? They are E-6.

    where are you located? Here's some of my recommended places for E-6, along with their location. All handle mail-order processing.

    Datachrome (Orange County, CA)

    www.data-chrome.com

    Samy's Camera (Santa Barbara, CA)

    www.samys.com (lab is located at the S.B. store location, phone # is on their website)

    Praus Productions (Rochester, NY)

    http://www.4photolab.com/


    I've used Samy's and now Datachrome for my E-6 processing, all formats 35mm-->8x10. Both are tremendous places to do business with. Both have fast turnaround M-F.

    Is it correct that you have no interest in developing these yourself? I am dev'ing the quickload 4x5 and it's quite easy.

    I am considering to begin processing my 4x5 quickload transparencies at home. What chemistry do you use to process your E-6?
    Thank you.

    I am new to the processing of E-6 but not new to home film processing. I process my own B&W film.
    What E-6 chemicals do you recommend for home use. The 5 bath, the rapid 3 bath, Tetenal, Arista? Any suggestions you have would be terribly helpful. Thank you.

    I use the 7 bath Kodak 5L kit. I have 1.5 boxes left. I also have Fuji 5L kits and some of the larger Kodak chemicals in 10L size. Processing at home is really not hard, just don't try it on an important roll for the first few attempts. Some examples of my home processed chromes are at http://thomasnabbott.tumblr.com/

    tnabbott,

    Thank you for the reply and thank you for sharing your examples. Do you process manually or do you have an automated system?
    I have had no luck locating the Fuji or Tetenal E-6 kits in the US and have found the cost of International shipping to be price prohibitive to my importing the kits.
    So I am going to give the 3 bath Arista kit, which I can purchase from Freestyle, a try and follow it up with a final stabilizing bath containing the formalin omitted in the Arista kit. I am hoping that does the trick.

    Where do you source your chemistry from?
