Fuji Or Kodak Mailer?

Mon Jun 18, 2001 7:51 am


I was about to order a few rolls of Provia 100F from when I saw that I could get it with either a Fuji or Kodak mailer. Since I have lost confidence in my local E-6 guy , and plan to use a mailer , should I go with Fuji ( since it is Fuji film ) or Kodak ? I have never used a mailer for E-6 , only K-14 ( obviously ).

Turn around time is not a big factor in my decision , only the quality of processing. What's your experience ?

I have only sent three rolls to Fuji for my E-6 processing. They did a nice job overall! One of the rolls had a very faint line across some of the shots, but I have seen this many times from even the most expensive processors. My last roll was sent back to me, here in Chicago within a week.

I would also recommend the Slideprinter of Denver. They charge $7.00 for 36 exp normal E-6 processing. They have been very reliable, and even make nice prints from slides. Same processing time as Fuji.

My advice would be to send a roll or two to Fuji to try them out.

Hope this helps!

Is there K25 or K64 users in here?
What do you think of these films and how much do you pay for it?

Last Feb I bought 20 rolls of Fuji Provia film for the first time along with 20 Fuji mailers and I've had mixed results with the processing. I have used 15 of the mailers and have gotten several slides back with scratches on them. I decided a few scratches were that bad but then in the last batch I had one roll that was badly scratched from slide #1 thru #36. Because of this I decided to go ahead and pay a little extra and sent them to my local E-6 processer. I just don't want to wonder whether they will come back scratched or not.

Just like I thought... the grass isn't really greener on the other side... the truth comes out eventually.

I use only KR-64... and it goes to Fairlawn, NJ for processing... takes 8 days for the turnaround to Vancouver, BC. Luckily I haven't been plagued with the "scratch" lately, but I guess it happens to everybody, not just us KR users.
