    Are there any differences in the chemicals used by Fuji & Kodak slide
    processing labs? I know Kodachrome uses a different process.

    Can Kodak slide films be processed at Fuji lab & vice versa?

    Thanks

  2. I have been using Kodak processing for all my films. I use Velvia
    50, Provia 100, Sensia 100 and Sensia 400. No problems what so ever so
    far.

    Do not mix up E-6 slide films and Kodachrome.

    A number of film manufacturers make E-6 process slide film ... Fuji
    Fujichrome, Kodak Ektachrome, etc

    Kodak Kodachrome is only processable by Kodak using a different process.

    You can process any E-6 film in anyones E-6 chemistry.

    E-6 is E-6, so yes, with the exception of Kodachrome which, as you
    noted, is a distinct Kodak process.

    I suggest that the difference in processing is not a question of Fuji versus
    Kodak, but rather one of the control exerted by the processor on
    temperature, chemistry limits and cleanliness. In this case, it is not a
    question of the ingredients going into the soup but rather how you run the
    kitchen. I found a good pro-lab about 5 years ago, and my problems were all
    solved.
