Slide Developing.

Can anyone recommend someplace that still develops slides?

If you're shooting E6 process you can do it yourself with minimal equipment - it's not difficult as long as you pay close attention to time and temperature. The outlay on equipment is quickly recovered by cost saved in processing.

I did it for years using a blacked out closet to load the developing tank and the kitchen sink. I think I screwed just one roll out of hundreds.

Yeah, well, I don't own any of that stuff, nor is it worth any of the money to get it since it's a single slide that i'm wanting to develop.

Not sure what you mean by a "single slide" but I use Panda Labs here in Seattle, I've also had good luck with NCPS in Carlsbad, CA.

I've just taken my very last cassette of slide film Fuji in this case, in fact they may be the last company still making the stuff? I had a special reason for using this film which I won't bore you all with. It's really not viable any more because of the cost, besides that of the cost of the film itself. Here in the UK you can't just pop it down to your local pharmacy to deal with, no, you have to send it off to a specialist. That wouldn't be so bad except that the Post Office will charge you £3.00 to to send it to the specialist, who will require a payment of £9.00 to develop only, although thankfully they send it back free of charge! So that's it, slide film can't last much longer I'd suggest. To think that just a first class stamp was required on each of those fifty or so cassettes that I used to send to Kodak every year not so long ago!
