Hey all,

Sorry to bother you again, i have some Kodachrome here in need of some processing. I heard that Kodak shut all their Labs except in Switzerland so what should i do? Send my films to the Lab in London and let them send it off to Switzerland, or just send it straight there.

What do you UK Kodachrome users do now?

Cheers

Dan

Dan,

Send it to the lab at the old / normal in Wimbledon - they'll take care of everything and forward it to Switzerland.

Hi Dan, If you are in a "little bit" hurry to have your slides developed send them direct to Lousanne. If you send them to Wimbledon (or in my Case the Dutch lab.) it takes a few more days to have them back.

Via Wimbledon, 2 - 3 weeks seems to have been the norm recently. If you do a search through the archive of this forum, I think you'll find its been mentioned that the target is two weeks, and that sending stuff via Wimbledon is sometimes quicker than sending it direct - Rich Hunt (I think) posted some figures a couple of months ago.

The same for me 2 - 3 weeks.
But on this moment for me it is'nt a problem at all because I have still about 25 - 30 rolls to scan (most from CDG and YVR).
Digital camera, I think of it more and more.

hhhmmm thats quite a while. I have been thinking about turning to digital too. Although we have two digital camera's but both of poor quality.

I wouldn't mind paying 600 pounds (don't have a pound sign lol) for a new digital camera if i new it was too get good results

Cheers

Dan,

I think that the digital cameras some of the folks here use cost more than £600 - over £3000 for a Nikon D1x, £1800 for a Canon D30, or £2300 for a Fuji S1, all without lenses... Hmmm, I'll hang in there with celluloid for a while longer.

hehe  Smile

Chris Kilroy's pictures seemed pretty good to me (i heard that his Sony camera was $900 but that might be wrong).

Maybe it is wrong

Lol

ok

Thanks

If I sent them to Lausaunne from here in HKG, the wait averaged about 4 weeks. One of my friends in London had the worst Kodachrome experience I've heard of. He sent in a whole bunch of them to Wimbledon in February after his trip to Sharjah. The last time I heard, he's still waiting for them!! Wow!

I also have a copy of the Sony DSC-F505V. While shots of aircraft on the ground is OK with this camera, it is just not responsive enough to shoot aircraft in-flight. After quite a bit of disappointing experiences, I now designate this camera for general photography only. For aviation photos, it's either sticking with celluloid or coughing up the dough for a pro-level digital SLR.
