Re: filmscanners: X-ray scanners/etc
There is no need to bring film to Sweden, we have excellent labs here. You
can buy professional refrigerated film here. Stockholm offer lots of good
camera shops. The best one is called Kameradoktorn. It's a pro shop, they
have almost everything in stock and they're pretty cheap. Kameradoktorn also
have a great lab called DOX. They're pretty expensive, but you'll get great
results and good service. Both the shop and lab are located at 'David
Bagares gata 3. The shop is worth a visit even if you don't need any film.
Other good labs are Diabolaget, Prolabbet and Crimson.
