    I have to entirely disagree, you can reproduce all the information on a transparency or negative with the right equipment and skill.

    If E-6 films contain a larger gamut than RGB can have, then that means E-6 films contain more imaginary colours that you simply can't see than RGB, which already has a gamut larger than both what a monitor can display and human vision.

    I would argue it doesn't though, as RGB and Lab contain bigger gamuts, as it's not physically possible to reproduce fictional colours in the physical world, thus there would be no such colours in a scene to be actually photographed, nor could a film reproduce those colours in it's dye layers. As it's beyond physical limitation.

    Xtolsniffer there is BPD Phototech in Warrington that still do Cibachromes. Photonet has a thread on it with some good and some not so good comments on its quality but that is par for any discussion site. There is bound to be somebody or bodies who was/were less than impressed.

    A guy with a stall at Martinmere Wildfowl Trust near Southport has cibachromes for sale which were done by BPD and I thought they were superb.

    Not cheap by comparision with scanning and RA4 but probably longer lived and a good cibachrome has no equal in looks. Not necessarily better in every case but it cannot be replicated in my opinion.

    For anyone not familiar with Galen Rowell he was a excellent writer, photographer, climber and general outdoors man. I was really sad when he passed and still miss reading his articles.
