processing ektachrome-x slide film

danny ace , Nov 08, 2007; 12:32 p.m.


my sincere apologies if this question has been answered elsewhere ... i havent been able to find it.

i have an old slide film of my fathers that appears to be unprocessed. the details on the film are:

kodak ektachrome-x colour slide film process e-2 or e-4 daylight or blue flash ex 135-20 asa 64 - 19 din 20 exposures 24 x 36mm

i was wondering if anyone could advise where i could get this film processed? i tried to do so 10 years ago and the only places seemed to be in U.S. which at the time i wasnt too delighted about, seeing it as a risk to send the film all that way (im in the UK).

however, i have done precisely nothing about it in the 10 years since and am now ready to take the risk!

i would be an awful lot happier if there WERE somewhere in the UK that could handle it but i was wondering if anyone could suggest where i could start?

thanks a lot danny manchester, uk

Rocky Mountain may just be your only choice left. Search photo.net and you should be able to see that they are generally considered reliable and trustworthy. Between UPS and FedEx, the risk of international shipping has become almost negligible; I'd trust FedEx more sending a package to Pakistan than snail-mail across town (about a month ago we were presented - anonymously - with a cardboard box filled with over a month's worth of soggy, moldy USPS First-Class Mail [shudder]).

Gads, it's been a day for it. Try this place:


I don't know anything about them but I had them bookmarked for some reason.
