    Thanks for the lab recommendation, daleeman. I just sent Chris an email.

    This is part of the reason I am doing mostly black and white. That said, we need to keep Blue Moon Camera in business. They get a lot of work and are great at it.

    You are right. However the manufacturers of halide paper don't call this optical printing but digital printing, which could be confused with something like ink-jet printing...

    Costco scans all 35mm film and prints chemically.
    Penn Camera, Tysons Corner Virgina, prints optically but cannot raise the enlarger head to crop out the Hasselblad film back film clamp bite out of the print.
    Samys Camera, Los Angeles and Southern California, prints optically and can raise the enlarger head to crop on request.
    Golden Color, Los Angeles, http://goldencolor.com/ 9020 West Olympic Blvd Beverly Hills CA, optically prints and can print VERY LARGE PRINTS including 8"x10". When I want a 24"x36" print from 35mm, I go to them.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    If it was optical printing I would be happy then I could talk about our Lambda services here on APUG.
    I have been hesitant due to Sean's mission statement.

    It is optical concerning the halide side of the issue.

    (I leave aside certain tweaking of the new emulsions to adapt them to this kind of optical printing.)


    Maybe light-exposure printing would be a better term, covering both systems.

    Hey I am all ears on this, as I do describe the unit as a huge colour enlarger with all the basic tools
    I like the term light-exposure unit that uses images captured by film or digital to output silver prints and silver negs.

    How long do you think this description will fly before the moderators close the discussion down or send it to the gulag that is dpug.

    If your work is done all optically, I am interested; however I do have a concern about the draconian prices Canada Post and Canada Customs would add to the cost of sending my work to you.

    Yes. Pretty much the way all pro labs are geared now. As a user of these pro high end services, the results are splendid indeed — better than Ilfochrome Classic which I laboured away at (financially, at least!) for the better part of 20 years. I frame all my prints.
