Mixed mode film dev & print

Discussion in 'UK Photography' started by Colin J Denman, Apr 5, 2004.

  1. I mix 'panoramic' (cropped top and bottom) and ordinary 35mm frames on the
    same roll. Until last year I used York Excel to dev and print to 6x4
    prints, but last set was returned with only the ordinary prints and a note
    that they couldn't print panoramics.

    Any recommendations for alternate processors? I emphasise I just want a 6x4
    print of the panoramics, not a larger 'proper' panoramic print.

    How do you 'crop'??????

    I regularly shoot 16mm (motion) and other formats with 16:9 in mind. The
    cropping's done mentally or via masking!

    If they're simply rejecting prints that you've cropped (masking???) to 16:9
    why not just scan the negs???? £100 will bu you a neg scanner worthy of
    proofing....

    Usual panoramic setting on a Ricoh R-1 -- not a true panoramic camera, just
    slides some blades upt to mask the image -- it is quite a pleasing effect
    sometimes. The negatives are standard 35mm, but for some reason the
    processor rejected the last bunch as being 'mixed format'.

    I just want to print to 6x4 like I used to. Hence the request. And no, I'm
    not going to buy a scanner just to get this done. Anyone got a suggestion?

  4. Hi Colin,

    My local Jessops (Ft. Kinnaird, Edinburgh), would always print panoramics
    cropped onto normal 6x4s if 10x4s were not requested when the film was
    dropped off, but had to done with the in-store Diamond Laser service.

    Best to see if you can talk to your local lab person and no doubt they will
    accomadate you.

    Cheers,
    Stephen
