With wider use of digital cameras, most of the photo printing shops offered to print using laser technology. Even if your photos are film based, be it negative or slide, most of the time it will be scanned and printed from a digital machine. It is almost too hard to find older conventional machines that uses light and optics to expose onto the photo paper. After reading and digging up some threads, I managed to find out 2 shops that provides conventional printing services.
1. RGB Color
From 8"x12" to 20"x24" negative only using Kodak, any lower uses digital. They say this is traditional darkroom method, not sure got any difference.
2. Stanley Lim Colour Centre
Up to 12"x18" on negative only.
I have yet to do more deeper search for such services. I was happily snapping my Provia100F and cannot imagine to find out that there is few (or none) that prints direct through optics from slides. I hope through this thread that more labs be "unearthed" that we know of so interested users can print to see if they like digital or conventional output better.
