    How often do you use a lab?

    PS can I have that C-41 formula and the places you buy the chemicals from?

    Hey Stone, the C-41 formula I use can be seen at post #9 at the the thread below ("C-27"):

    I'm afraid I haven't done E6 for about 25 years.

    I have a stockpile of chemicals dating back to 1987, but when I run out, I typically go to Artcraft Chemicals.

    Everyone saying they use labs for C-41 makes me feel much less guilty about the fact that I do.
    Everybody has a photographic memory, some just don't have film.

    I use a pro-level lab all the time now, both for E6 and printing. No scanning done here because the cost of pricey exhibition-quality Kodak Endura Professional metallic media includes drum scan work and colourimetrics, saving me at the minimum two very long days of post-scan ops that could be better spent behind the camera, not at a computer.

    Wish I had a nice lab like that, the one around here sucks... they can't even scan as high as I can at home for their "pro" level scan...

    Truth be told, the lab does not scan higher than I would, but about the same, and sometimes lower, and with significantly more error-checked automation so that everybody gets the same quality result in good time and there are no hangups from mismatches, bad files or other workflow bottlenecks (most of the time...!). The trick bit is with the colourimetrics to get the very best result on the printed media — I tell you this stuff is getting a serious leg-up over the old bastion of Ilfochrome Classic (those framed prints are still beautiful under spot, but so too now are the 'alternative media' products!). That colourimetric stuff drives me cuckoo. I just use my V700 for stat proofing now. I'll probably sell it off this year — one of 10 New Year Resolutions I made, and boy-o, do I stick to 'em!!
