About a year ago I sent a roll of 500T ECN-II film to Cinelab for this processing service, catering to still shooters.
The result; almost a year to the day, I am still waiting for it.
I'm not trying to hurt Cinelab's reputation or anything, but I couldn't possibly recommend that anyone send them motion-picture film in still cassettes for ECN-II processing. I'm slightly embarassed to have done so much positive PR for them, all for naught.
I have emailed them countless times over the past year to inquire about my order, always with the assurance that once their line was back up and running that I'd get my film. People have been very nice, but in the end there's just been no follow-thru.
My wish is not to smear them, but to vent a little frustration and relate my experience. I have no doubt they're a great lab for motion picture shooters, but look elswhere if you wanna put 500T or 50D through your Nikomat....
For me 2 weeks are more than I can accept but you waited and hoped for 1 year. Thats erroding I think they lost the roll whatever. What a shame ! Is there any other one who has been successful at his adventure for ECNII order ? By which company ?
That company imploded and left some high-profile wedding photographers without their negs. I'm surprised the site is still up, but I'd stay away from it if I were you. I got burned too, but only a couple of rolls.
Apparently this company's no good; just wanted to pass on the word from another thread.
