DR5 for large format

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread


Just wondering if anyone out there has sent out their 4x5 or larger film to .dr5 for processing, and what do you think. I was thinking of experimenting with 10-20 sheets, but would appreciate comments/feedback/tips first.

I haven't sent my own negs there for reversal processing, but I just got a great R-print from an 8x10" color transparency from them and saw their B&W chromes on the lightbox and was impressed. Tri-X sheet film looks particularly nice in the dr5 process. You can tell that David Wood really cares about his work and knows a lot about film.

I would give them a call before experimenting about film types and how to rate your film for reversal processing. If you are in the New York area, it is definitely worth a trip to the lab to look at his lightbox and see how various films look in the process.
