I use Agfa Scala film as the original for the Van Dyke process. The
lab which processed Scala here in Toronto has also stopped (it was
the only one in Canada). However, there is another option:
Dr5 lab (recently relocated to L.A.) processes virtually any type of
B&W film as positive transparency with their reversal process. They
also process Scala and say that they "will continue to process Scala
till it is gone".
I have not used dr5 but they say that their process produces better
results than the standard Scala process.

ps my first post on this wonderful mail list. I'm very excited to be
a part of this.
