Great news ! Team Framkallning can now develop E-6 process for diapositive in their lab at Mariatatorget.
That’s really a fantastic news for us film lovers as it’s become very expensive and even very hard to find a lab that can handle E-6. The price is 125:- per roll including VAT/moms (100:- without). Yes, it’s still expensive but at least it can be done locally.
Their processor has a long story, in fact it comes from Diabolaget which was the last lab in Stockholm handling dia. At the beginning of the year Diabolaget decided to close all their film activities and sold all machines. This one was bought by Crimson who, in the past, were sending the dia rolls to be processed in Jönköping. Though they bought the processor, they had no real plan to relaunch the activity. Finally it ended up in Veikko‘s hands, there couldn’t be a better place for it !
We had some plans to process E-6 as well in our Knepp lab but it is quite complicated without a processor. And those are a bit tricky to manage. We might do some experiments in the future but for now Team Framkallning is the best alternative for high quality processing. Also keep in mind they offer a student discount of -25% on conventional development, including C-41 but excluding E-6 dia. So we warmly recommend it for any color development. For our members, also say you are from Knepp !
And for all regarding black and white, Knepp is the best place ! 😉
