    Where to process Quickoads

    I have recently moved to Las Cruces from Tucson and am looking for a place to process my 4x5 Quickload chromes and Readyload negatives. Any suggestions?

    Calypso Imagning in Santa Cruz, CA - that is who does all my E6 processing. They are having a sale this month.

    The lab below was recommended in another thread, I have not used them. I have used Calypso, but I think now they only do only E6, not C41.

    Locally, Photographic Works: http://www.photographicworks.com/.
    I've never used it myself but seen it recommended somewhere. The prices are very reasonable.

    A lot of pros use Photocraft in Boulder, Colorado. They are very reasonable and do a great job. Of course it takes about a week round trip by priority mail.

    Don,

    Carl's Darkroom in Albuquerque is one of the best E-6 labs in the country (formerly a Q designated lab when Kodak cared about such things) and takes in film from all over the country. See:http://www.carlsdarkroom.com/. B&W is another matter. When I get backed up I send it to Praus who does great work. See:http://www.4photolab.com/.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    I use Praus as well for B&W (what little I do), however, Calypso Imaging gets all my E-6 work (they don't do C41). They are a Fuji certified lab, and have some of the best prices I've found anywhere - $1.30 per sheet for nature photographers (commercial photographers pay a higher price - the controls on the processing machine are stricter). I can't speak high enough of them, both from the quality of their work and their customer service.

    As Robert indicates the Calypso price for Nature Photographers is a great price at $1.30 per sheet of 4 X 5. I will have to try them myself later in the year.

    I once asked on APUG how Calypso can manage to offer such cheap rates, and the owner of Calypso, registered just to answer my question. Basically, he said that he was in the E6 processing business for the long run.

    Re: Where to process Quickoads

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I forgot that I had used Photocraft in Boulder for E-6 before and they were very good to deal with. It looks like Praus (http://www.4photolab.com/Pages/services01.html) and Photoworks in Tucson are the only ones that do C-41. While living in Tucson, I had used Photoworks and outside of accidentally pushing by one-stop a 120 roll one time I had no problems with them (they are also the most expensive). I may also try Carl's as I do get to Albuquerque occasionally.

    On another note entirely, I have been at Bosque del Apache the last couple of days. Outside of frozen fingers and struggling to have enough light to focus by, my Toho and I have been having a great time. Although, it sure does leave me with a sense of "glass envy." This is a time where size matters. I haven't seen another large format shooter out there. The tourists and prosumer folks have been curious and often wonder aloud, "what kind of camera is that?" I love their reactions to seeing the image upsidedown and inverted.
