Any recommendations on quality laboratories for processing and telecine of super 8mm Tri-X Reversal film? I work with video, and have little experience with film.

Thanks,

Hi Dan,

I'd take a look at
Cinilab

I've used them before (w 16mm though) and have had good experiences.

Spectra is great, and I have used Yale with good results. If you want to cross process or do anything experimental try Niagara Custom Lab .

AlphaCine in Seattle does a great job.

They can process anything (except Kodachrome) so it's a good lab to develop a relationship with. B&W 16mm reversal and negative, Color E6 and negative.
