dr5-LAB is the only lab left in the US and world [except Germany], capable of processing the SCALA-film with quality and consistency, & we still process SCALA better than AGFA ever did or will challenge any other labs quality!   dr5-chrome is committed to running this film, to the last roll. We have been processing B&W slide for over 20 years, long before scala-film was introduced.

dr5 LAB strives to provide the best, most consistent quality processing for the remaining scala film. THERE SIMPLY ISNT A BETTER QUALITY SERVICE FOR B&W REVERSAL PROCESSING. dr5 LAB process SCALA to a higher standard than that of the old AGFA process. No one processes SCALA film better than us.

ABOUT SCALA: Scala is a very sharp, well-designed negative film for use in AGFA's DIA-type Scala process, now discontinued with AGFAPHOTOs closing in '03. Contrary to belief Scala is a B&W-ORTHO "NEGATIVE" film, an orthochromatic [partial] clear-base film type that runs better through the dr5 process. Comparison-processing Tests indicate a 15-20% on average quality improvement over the old AGFA process. Scala film produces a first-rate neutral in developer-1, and a 'milk-chocolate' sepia in developer-2.

Scala FILM has a medium~hard tonal range with good detail in the blacks and whites in dr5. It has less depth than many of the other films due to its ortho-film qualities. Film such as TXP & FP4 are panchromatic and produce superior results.

SCALA normal iso is@ 200. Due to age of the remaining film we recommend you expose this film no higher than 400iso. We can run SCALA to its advertised 1600 iso however, It is not recommended given the films current age. Push charges apply to run this film @ 400 - 800      EI-range 20-400 - 800 MAXiso
NOTE: we no longer run SCALA @1600iso due to it's ongoing age. Use Hp5 as a replacement at this speed.
