Hello everyone

Beginning of next year im starting a long feature lenght documentary which will partly be shot in New York, with the new airport resctrictions i was thinking of using a Laboratory based in New York.
So i was looking for experiences of people here with Labs in New York, i came across Cinelab which is based in New York as well, anyone had a good experienc with this lab?

Greetings,

Thanks allready for the reply's, I am talking with my producer at the moment what option is best!!
Are there special labs, because i'm shooting s16mm, where i should not go too because they are only specialised in 35mm?

Most labs will run 35mm & 16mm ECN in the same machine so if their chemistry and consistency is good with 35mm (it better be) it will be the same with 16mm. From there it is a handling issue after the roll is removed from the film processor, i.e. Super16 has to be handled with regard to the extended negative area.

Assuming that you are shooting Color Negative I would move towards a lab with a great 35mm reputation because it will carry over to Super16 as well.
