    I just got back a second roll which was already in the mail when I got the crooked slides. It, too, has many of the slides showing the sprocket holes. The good news is that I was able to readjust all the crooked mounts by putting on gloves and just pinching and repositioning. But since their price has gone up as well I will probably try some of the suggestions in this thread. I noticed nobody mentioned Dwaynes. Did they stop developing all slides when they shut down Kodachrome?
    f/22 and be there.

    Heavens no! Dwayne's is where I send my E6 (another shipment to go out a week from Monday). Typically a three day turnaround for E6. Work is always top notch.

    See: http://www.dwaynesphoto.com/common/n...Processing.pdf
    An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Any opinions regarding The Icon lab in LA?-- http://www.iconla.com/main/

    I'm thinking of using them for E-6.

    Dwaynes is the go to place if you want your film to come back streaked and covered with dirt. At no extra charge they will take your photographs of red rock country and print them so that the ground is green rather than red. Furthermore when you send the package of film and prints to be reprinted properly, they will promptly lose them forever. Just ask me how I know.

    It sounds like this is one of those things where everyone hates the photofinisher they used to use, while being more or less happy with their current one, and I'm probably on that same trajectory.

    I've never got back dirty streaked or otherwise damaged film from Dwayne's and I've probably sent them at least a couple hundred rolls. The prints from neg film always look pretty good too, especially recently - better than they used to be.

    OTOH, their scans leave much to be desired.

    fyi, Samy's has lost their Santa Barbara lease (the current building they've been in for the last 10 years has been sold) and will be moving to new quarters later this summer. Unfortunately they will not be moving their Refrema machine. They've sold that machine and will cease E-6 processing on May 2. All E-6 will be contracted out to Swan Labs in San Clemente, CA. The same with C-41 sheet film. They will also cease all of their internal B+W processing in the next couple of days.

    I've personally had no issues with Samy's for processing and their prices were very good. Although I've never had 35mm E-6 mounted; always left in a strip unmounted.

    I used Praus for sheet film transparency and Dwayne's for my 35mm slides, I like that they use paper slides, does Praus use paper or plastic?

    Indeed a sad note. I've been using them since AI stopped E-6 at their LA office about 4 or 5 years ago now I think. Samy's presently has a load of 120 & 4x5 E-6 as well as 4x5 B&W of mine in their shop. Hard to keep up with the changes anymore, seems weekly instead of the once a year thing.......UGH!

    Try North Coast Photo

    I develop all my B&W myself but I send all my C-41 and E6 to North Coast Photo (http://www.northcoastphoto.com).

    They are great in customer service, quality, processing times and price.

    I'm in Miami and I used to developed at Dale Laboratories but I had a bad experience with them.

    A few examples from my last batch:

    Pentax 67II - SMC 67 105mm F/2.4
    Velvia 50
    OOC/no PP
