    E6 lab recommendation?

    Hi all,

    I wonder if anyone has any experience with Photographic Traditions of
    Maine for processing E6. My local lab has been a little inconsistent in handling
    my Velvia sheet film.

    I understand that Chrome in San Diego has a good reputation but I'm trying
    to avoid the time and extra cost of shipping UPS ground to the West Coast from
    New Jersey.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I know nothing about the lab in Maine you mentioned but I do know you have many choices closer to home .... just do a Google search. The lab in New England that I can recommend is Slice Specialists in Lebanon, NH (

    Re: E6 lab recommendation? is Edgar Praus in Rochester, NY and they do a lot of mail order, high quality work for professionals... I know he does E6 for a lot with photographers out West, even Alaska...

    Chrome Inc, Washington, DC

    Their web site is mostly about digital services, but they do process E-6 and C-41.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    What Frank said. Mike at Praus helped me trouble shoot my 4x5 E6 when I thought I was having local lab issues. Turns out my light meter needed to be calibrated. When my local lab shuts down within the year I'll send all my E6 to Praus.

    I live here in Portland, Maine and used to bring my chromes to Portland Color. When they stopped processing E-6, Photographic Traditions bought the machine and I think are the only ones in Maine at least for LF.

    I've been bringing my 4x5 and 8x10 chromes there and have always had good results. All dip-and-dunk and they will process up to 8x10. Last batch I brought them was in early October and they came out beautiful.

    Another vote for Edgar Praus. Quick turnaround and great service.
