CRC? Duggal?

Others? Any to avoid?

My old standby LTI no longer does

I don't want to mail order or process myself as easy as that may be : )

Doing my own investigation

Tried Color House, not bad, first run cleaner than second which had a bit of dust dried into it

Will try CRC next

Adam-

CRC worked pretty well for me though the 8x10 film I had processed there was very old so there was a color shift. Otherwise it looked good (and clean IIRC).

edit: looks like they moved so who knows. Also, geez, the online reviews are really terrible...

Thanks Ethan

Processed film at Color House 3 consecutive days, first was ok, 2nd was dirty, 3rd less duty but some random film damage
Nothing excessive or unfixable but not really impressed overall. Too bad

At this point I’m not really liking what Provia is giving me and Velvia isn’t my thing so I’ll suspend these tests for now

If there’s any new e6 films introduced (“if”) I’ll try CRC

Anil is fantastic! I've been going to him since the 1980's when he managed the U.S. Color Lab. Excellent place for e6, c41, and b/w work for all of my work- half-frame through 8x10. Total professional and a fine gentleman to deal with.

Thanks Doug, good to know

I’ve been with LTI family of labs since the 90s but US Color did good e6 back then

Bleeker (wonder why the c went missing) is even closer to me than Color House, will try them next time as CRC has moved to midtown and I haven’t heard any real first hand experiences (outside of Ethan’s expired film above)
