    Michael, I don't think they do true drum scanning, but try Image Science in Melbourne. They do seem to understand digital printing far better than I do. Try http://www.imagescience.com.au/index.html and see whether that fits the bill, or they may know of the right person to do the job.

    In terms of Cibachrome theres a place in Adelaide named Chroma Colour (http://www.chromacolour.com.au/). I've never used them but intend to if I ever shoot any worthwhile Velvia.

    Peter- I'm interested in the local guy building cameras. Hmmmm. Too tempting.

    John.

    Have a good day.

    They're coming out of the woodwork now. Give them a nice blue background and suddenly everyone's happy to stop lurking!

    Hi Peter,
    I'm another Melbournian, out east in Donvale. I've been shooting 4x5 but have just had to tear down the darkroom to allow for a new extension to be built, so it will be six months before I can print again. Hopefully I will still be able to develop and scan, but at the moment the Jobo is in storage too.

    Hi

    I'm Jeremy, I run Image Science (http://www.imagescience.com.au) and we do scanning on an Imacon Flextight 949. It's a pretty serious machine and you should give it a try to see it if suits your needs. I'm an LF shooter myself (there's more than you think down here), and I teach the Digital Fine Print course at RMIT so I (am supposed to) have a rough idea what I'm doing with all this.

    We also do output - a lot of printing for LF shooters - on things like Hahnemuehle Photo Rag, the new Crane Silver Rag etc. Not the same as cibachrome at all, of course, but interesting options. Check out the website or give me a call on (03) 9348 9808 and I can take you through what we do. Or if you just want to chat about Large Format (I use an Ebony RW45, and a mix of Schneider SSXLs and A couple of longer Fujis).

    (CFL use (I'm told) an older Imacon and charge like a sin, also they very often return clipped scans etc (I've re-scanned a lot of their work for people). I guess it comes down to the operator you get on the day. Other people seem very happy with them, if much poorer).

    Cheers
    Jeremy

    I'll vouch for Jeremy's work in scanning - you will not fault the work he does. He may charge low rates, but that certainly DOES NOT mean the work is low rate - his scans are the best I've had done. If you like being "pleasantly surprised", send him a tranny.

    Cheers,
    Graeme
