online devlopers for Kodak EKTACHROME color slide film?

Katia Roberts , Sep 28, 2009; 01:31 p.m.

Hello,

I recently visited my father's house and went through a big box of old photos.
At the bottom of the box was a used roll of undeveloped film.
The film could be between 25-45 years old.
I'd love to get it developed to see what's on there.
The roll says, "Kodak High Speed EKTACHROME color slide film", it's 20 exposures,
HI/SPD, EKTA, B
EHB 135 - 20
ASA 125 * 22 DIN
24 x 36mm
Process E-2 or E-4
Anyone know where I can send it online to get it developed?
Thank you so much!

Katia

Just my take: dealing with exposed film that's sat for 25-45 years you want to have a very close relationship with the processor, and it should be someone experienced in long overdue processing. It will very likely take adjustments to the usual process, maybe with test processing of a small portion of the film. It is not run-of-the mill.

I'm sure someone will be along with more specifics soon ;)

Processes E2/E4 haven't been run in large scale since the 70s. Processing it in E-6 will destroy the film. IMHO, you'd get best results processing it in HC-110 so you'll get a black and white negative. Apparently it is possible to process it in C-41 as a color negative, but I don't know details on that. There are places like rockymountainphoto.com that will process it (as the aformentioned color negative), but they cost about $45 a roll.

I would recommend Film Rescue. They don't take nearly as long as Rocky Mountain, and at half the price.
Honestly, I don't know why people still recommend Rocky Mountain; I have heard people say that it takes up to a year to develop their film, and that they don't answer their phone.
