RE: filmscanners: Neg film for scanning

Actually, the first such lab I heard of (back in the late 60s, early 70s)
was Dale Color Labs.  The used to be here on Long Island.  A good many years
ago they moved to Florida.  They can be reached on the web at:
http://www.dalelabs.com/ <http://www.dalelabs.com/>  .They have gone through
a number of film "versions" and speeds from 100 ASA to 400 ASA that I know
of.  They also do Photo and Picture CDs.  You get back negatives, but they
don't look quite the same as "normal" color negatives do since the film is
originally cinema stock that is specifically made to provide color reversal
dupes from.  They also provide prints if you want them.  Personally, I would
rate them a small notch above Seattle, but both have pleased me very much
over the last 15-20 years.  I haven't used RGB in at least 15 years so I
can't say much about them.

I don't believe that Seattle Film Works were the first in that business. The
first I heard of were RGB Color Labs in Hollywood, CA. I used them for many
years, and they did send back a box of slides, a roll of negatives, and a
new roll of film. So far as I know, they still do that, @ about $7.50 for a
36 exposure roll, with Kodak EastmanColor films of ISO speeds of 100, 400
and 500, user's choice, same price. The price was certainly right for what
they give, and the slides provide a 'proof' image for the negatives if you
wish to print them. Other labs have joined in the business since then, and
the Seattle firm has been most aggressive in advertising the consumer
byproduct.  RGB mainly process the film, and make transparency prints from
the negatives, for the movie industry. I always found them straightforward
in all our dealings.
