    Has anyone used Blue Moon Camera?

    Hi Guys- I am shooting more color neg now and I want to get everything done optically. I found Blue Moon Camera and Machine http://www.bluemooncamera.com/ and they do all optical work from film. They don't even have a digital machine () I was wondering if anyone has used them. They are using Misubishi paper which I have never heard of.

    Thanks,
    Patrick

    I have just ordered some Minox film from them, they were very quick and helpful online, haven't received the film yet but I get a good vibe. The optical printing sounds good, will also be interested in anyone's experience with that.
    When I was in the lab business, Mitsubishi was always a cheaper alternative to Kodak and Fuji, they are a big player, especially in Japan, and I can see no reason why the paper wouldn't be good.

    I get a good vibe after talking to them too. They told me that they have used the Kodak and Fuji but found that for optical printing the Mitsubishi paper worked out better.

    I live near Portland, and often frequent Blue Moon -- mostly for equipment, but occasionally for processing. They are really good folks, and know their stuff.

    Heck yes. Jake (the owner of the place) is a great guy. Knowlegable and interesting to talk to. His staff are great photographers in their own right. They do great work with developing and printing. If you want an old manual typewriter, Jake is your man.

    I have used them and I know some of them as they are in my neighborhood. I like the optical printing they do and they try to do a good job of it. They are all dedicated to the love of analog. The owner shoots 8x10. Give them your work, they deserve to be supported.

    I ordered something from them a year ago; they were pretty awesome. Sent me a detailed, full-resolution picture of the item I was interested in (I didn't even ask for it) for me to look over before making the deal. Shipped really fast. I can definitely recommend them, and if I'm ever in portland I'm going to stop by.

    I've used them (online and phone orders from Maryland) and have been pleased and impressed. Highly recommended!

    I didn't think Mitsubishi was in the photo paper business anymore.
