Does anyone have any ideas about a Pro8mm style one-stop shop in the UK? Looking for camera rental, film, Process and transfer. Haven't had any luck on the web so far.

Thanks so much for your time,

I'm afraid there isn't anywhere quite like Pro8 over here.

You can rent cameras from Sendean in Soho, I think they may offer telecine too.

All/most of the UK shops that offer processing, send it Andec in Berlin.

The only UK lab processing Super 8 on a large scale is Deluxe Soho (formerly Soho Film Lab/Soho Images), they only process neg film and telecine SD on an Ursa Diamond.

I think Film & Photo will process colour reversal if you've got a few rolls and they do B+W reversal as neg.

There's a quite a few places around that offer telecine, some in HD, but they won't be up to the standards of Pro8's Cintel M2.

I think The Farm in Soho might have a super 8 gate for their Spirit, but the cost of using them is probably prohibitive for all but large-scale commercial productions.

I've heard some pretty mixed reviews of the Widescreen Centre's telecine.
