    E6 4x5 lab?

    Hi Folks,

    I'd like to find a lab that does 4x5 E6. Ideally, they'd be located within a drivable distance to fond du lac, WI 54935, but any good mail order places would be worthwhile knowing about as well.

    TIA,
    Peter

    They have a complete line of E6 and C41.

    I get all my slides processed at Carl's Darkroom. E-6 is all they really do, so that's what they're good at.

    I'm lucky enough to live in driving distance. But I understand that most of their business actually comes from mail order.

    The only place in my area that I can get MF or LF E6 processing really sucks so I had to go mail order. I took a friend's advice and tried Calypso Imaging (http://www.calypsoinc.com) and I'm happy with their service.

    Thanks folks! I developed my first E6 last night. Initially, I wasn't thrilled with the results, but now that they've dried they look good. I'm not sure, though, that I'll shoot enough E6 to make keeping the chemicals on hand worthwhile. Having some good commercial lab options will be helpful.

    Another vote for Calypso.

    I can personally recommend the lab I work for...Newlab in San Francisco, CA. We specialize in E-6! We use Reframa dip & dunk, multiple control strips every day, Q-lab standards, etc. Here is a link to the website:
    http://www.newlab.com If you decide to send film to us, put it to my attention (Matt Osborne) and mention APUG. I'll make sure you get a discount.
    Adios,
    Matt
