Found E100S Film - how to develop?

    Whilst on holiday in Crete last week, I found a canister of Ektachrome E100S
    x36 Professional film in a layby - presumably exposed (no lead-in). Had it
    been ordinary print film, I'd have sent it to TruPrint for a cheap
    turnround, just to see if I could trace the owner. But it looks like it's a
    colour-reversal film, so I guess they won't touch it?

    Any suggestions on the cheapest way to get it developed? Or is it one of
    those films where processing is pre-paid anyway? It doesn't need to be
    mounted - I've got a negative scanner anyway. I just don't mind spending a
    pound or two in the hope I can make some photographer very happy again :))

  2. I process my own E6, and might be in a position to do it (at cost) in a few
    weeks. Currently I have no films awaiting processing, and all my chemicals are
    still as concentrates. (I normally work in small batches of 4 films/batch.)
    email me directly if interested.

    This is not process-paid- you'd need the envelope anyway.
    Any pro lab will develop and return in strips. Under £5.
    Crete can be rather hot so it may have dry roasted nicely in its pot.

    Thanks - I've mailed BonusPrint as it appears they do E6. From the "as new"
    condition of the label on the canister I doubt it had been there more than
    24 hours. I just hope the guy wasn't into anything nasty! If so I may need
    you as witnesses at my trial :(

    Thanks Malcolm - if I'm still struggling I'll get back to you in a few
    weeks.
