Asking this on behalf of a friend. Where would you take (or send) Ektachrome E3 4x5 sheets for development in the Bowling Green, Ohio area?

Process E-3 was superseded by Process E-4 in 1974 and in turn again by Process E-6 in 1976. While it is chemically relatively-straightforward (as old reversal processes go), I don't believe any lab will be able to recover images from the sheets in colour.

Film Rescue International, I'm told, will process it in B&W. Their website isn't very clear on the point, nor on whether they can accept sheet films, so an enquiry in advance would be advised.

No offense, this really this really isn't the ideal place to ask your question - on a Cinematography site.


There are photography websites out there where you'd get a much better answer to your question. . .




If your friend is trying to get color images from early '70s film developed, it might only be salvageable in B&W high-con. developer.

Go to www.apug.org and ask that question. I'm pretty sure someone will know answer to your question.
