Pro Labs left.
I'm just putting this out there for anyone looking for a Pro Lab to do E6. My recent explorations to find surviving labs showed many out of the business. If I had to depend on quick turnaround without a local good lab I'd be shooting digital.
Fort Lauderdale; www.chromatekphoto.com All formats. $8.50 for 36exp in plastic. (sales said their doing alot of out of state business and E6 processing is the bulk of their business.)
Hollywood; www.dalelabs.com 35mm- $10 36exp. 120- $6.50. (free mailers available)
We have at least three in SLC. All offer same or next day E6. Nichols I know for a fact will do up to 8x10 E6.

There are still many E-6 labs in NYC. A few are
Baboo Color Labs (not sure what their website is)--(212) 807-1574
In New York, turnaround time is usually 4 hours at the pro labs for E-6, less if you are willing to pay double or triple.

And in between FL and NY is Raleigh NC where J. W. Photo Labs is still making several E-6 and C-41 runs a day. They do all my 5x4 C-41 work. They run the test strips, keep everything clean, keep it all replenished, all that Q-Lab stuff. And yes, their website is, um, less than ideal. The best way to deal with them is the telephone.

I'll put in a plug for The Slideprinter (AKA Denver Digital Imaging) in Colorado. I THINK their E-6 is same day if you're local, or two weeks if you're shipping across the country like me. Shipping is free both ways if you use their mailers, and the staff has always been helpful (over 15 years and however many thousand rolls, they've messed up one roll of mine, but were very straightforward and made it up with some free printing).
In Florida as well is the company I work for FotoTechnika Fine Art Imaging. We are in Jacksonville, Fl and seem to be the last of our kind for many, many miles in all directions. We are the last place to keep E6 and the only place to still process 110, 127, 135, 120, 220, 4x5, 8x10 in C41, E6, & B&W all in Dip-n-Dunk machines "In-House"(B&W is a sink line). As of October of last year we became the last place you can walk in off the street and purchase Pro films, and we keep everything we process on hand w/ the exception of 8x10.
Please check us out if you are in town or just want to see what we offer. http://www.fototechnika.com
Thanks Jody for that information. What is the usual turn around time?
I process E6 on a daily basis and usually the same for C41, so next day or the day after depending when it gets here and how much we have to do. B&W is only a once a week run at the moment, but that business seems to be picking up a little bit as of late. If it continues, we will add more runs.
Thanks for the interest and the thread,
I'll plug Dale Labs - we used them today for a digital print 8x10. They do great work!
35mm- $10 36exp. 120- $6.50. (free mailers available)
Chromatek in Fort Lauderdale did a very good job on several rolls for my wife. Only doing one run a day - so if they are dropped off in the morning you can get em by 5, otherwise its next day.
