Ektachrome! E6 the Cinelab Ekta runs!

Recommended Posts

FYI for everyone...

 

We spent the last few months (four or six?) rebuilding one of our Allen products film processors to run E6

 

This machine was originally bought by Cinelab in 1974 (when in Boston) for running (VNF I think?) Ektachrome.

 

It has been reconfigured over the years to run just about every process from ECO to ECP and B&W.

 

this machine has allot of tanks and is now configured to run ECP (Color Print) and E6 and it is RUNNING!!!

 

We delivered the first Ektachrome S8mm rolls yesterday and we can run 8mm 16mm and 35mm Ektachrome in the machine.

Wow I just went over to Kodak's site to see how much the Ektachrome is going for. They want $39.99 per roll of Super 8!

 

I used to pay about $12 for the same thing all the way up to around 2005....

Well, 400' of 16mm neg is about 7 times the price of a cart nowadays, so about $280?

BTW there's not such thing as Super-16 film, it's just single perf.

Obviously as a lab we have no control over the pricing of the film stock....

 

I have encouraged Kodak to try to keep S8 Cartridges under $40

 

I think the 16mm will be less than 7X the cost of a S8 cartridge or at least I hope so!!

Great news! So Cinelab is basically a one-stop-shop now for any kind of motion picture film processing, correct? Nice to be able to send everything to one place.

 

Regular 8, Super 8, 16, 35, color reversal, B&W reversal, color negative...Double X B&W negative as well?

Yes everything but 65/70mm ;-) for now....

16mm/35mm ECN2 (Photomec)

8mm/16mm/35mm B&W Negative and B&W Print

Robert,

how about DS-8 processing and splicing?

Thanks,

Volker

We run DS8 and I and others who work at Cinelab shoot the format ourselfs, we can run any DS8 perfed film and either slit it or not.
