    Hmm just interest but what about Dutch Elm disease? We have it here (in Holland) but is it something you don't like talking about?

    Dear SinarF1user,

    Your velvia will be returned unmounted. (Although there are 4x5 projectors out there for a really impressive "slide show".) You should have no trouble getting prints made. The film will likely be drum scanned and printed on an ink-jet or RA-4 digital printer. (There are, of course, other types of scanners and printers as well as Ilfochrome.)

    Dutch Elm disease was the talk of the town in Chicago when I was a little kid. They had to cut down an awful lot of them (Elm trees that is.<g>). Mostly Maple trees now.

    Ah... Well they still cut down a lot of Elm trees here every year, so many that I'm actually kind of surprised when I walk into a bunch of them... Hmm, 4x5 projected Velvia, that must be stunning Maybe you could should some elm trees?

    Dutch Elm disease...man, I haven't heard anybody talk about that in 30 years. I remember it sweeping through Minnesota nad Wisconsin when I was a kid.

    Slide film in 4x5: I came to 4x5 almnost directly from 35mm so, the big color slides just blew me away even without a projector. I hear that one can still get a "real" print from a slide using the Ilfochrome process and materials but, I haven't yet found any labs that will actually do it anymore.

    Really? Here in Perth we have Churchill Colour Laboratories who do 4x5 Cibachromes. Its no more expensive than using any other film. Theyre also one of the few places in the world (apparently Ive heard), that have worked out how to do Digital Cibachromes.

    Well done Cibachromes just trounce anything else available. Analog or Digital, you can't beat the wet process. I'd question the eyes or skills of anyone who says otherwise.

    In the shop window they had a 4 metre (approx 14 feet) wide by 1 metre horizontal print. Stunning.

    Daniel.

    Heres the address for any aussies, though I know a large proportion of their business is international.

    Bob Carnie's lab in toronto Canada does Ilfo/Ciba-Chromes. I have seen the work and it is outstanding.

    Our main street was once like a dark tunnel of Elm trees that swept over both sides of the road, making it a respite to walk during hot, sunny days. All gone.

    OB Photo - No pictures of it can be found. I wonder if it was either too difficult a subject or taken for granted.

    Velvia 50 is my favorite 4x5 transparency film. You can have spectacular "Cibachrome" (now Ilfochrome while it is still available) enlargements made by a competent lab.


    FYI: A number of the APUG members have recommended exposing at EI of 40 rather than 50.

    A&I will do contact sheets and enlarged contact sheets from 4x5.

    I haven't asked if they will do enlargements from a 4x5 transparancy, though.


    I did ask at Calypso for a 6x9 transparancy, and they said it would involve a scan.
