    6X9 processing

    NT=Times New Roman]undefined[/FONT]

    Does anyone know of a processing lab for 6X9 prints from 120 film. Local labs here have only 6X7 masks and so do not print the whole negative. Thanks

    Where is "here"? I think any pro lab should be able to handle 6x9 full frame. In L.A. you could use A&I. In New York I like Modernage, but there's also Duggal, Baboo, MVLabs for black and white, Taranto, ColorEdge, and several other good choices.

    I know that Calypso will not do 6x9 prints from chromes. They list contact prints on their website, but I don't see any information for proofs. Also, if you are out of the area (or can't get to Calypso during working hours), they have rather high shipping costs ($15/order).

    That said, I have a number of 8x10's in my house by Calypso. I really like their work and their people.

    A&I has 6x9 on their price sheet, but I haven't used them for this.

    6X9

    Thanks Matt, I have made contact with A&I in Los Angeles and a couple of specialty labs from Shutterbug magazine. Can get what I want now.

    Note that the price for a mailer for A&I is cheaper on B&H than direct from A&I.

    Let me know how it works. I have used them for 35mm stuff. I tend to destroy Tmax 3200, so I send it to them and it has worked well. But, I haven't sent them any 6x9 work.
