View Full Version : Suggestions on lab for B&W film
My local lab closed down
My other pro lab does Color only.. And they have a great deal...but I will save it for another topic.
I have a pile of B&W film I need to send out
35mm and 120
I was doing some of my own developing, but I don't have time now.
I just want to send these out and get small prints or contact sheets back.
Any sources for a mail order lab?
Do it yourself. It is not that hard.
A&I Labs in Los Angeles. They use XTOL as their standard developer and I have had good results from them. If your film is good in that soup I would stronly recommend them. Also do a search here at RFF on this topic - this very same question was asked a few weeks ago and there were quite a few suggestions in that thread.
I use a lab called The Darkroom (http://www.darkroomlab.com/index.html) in the Los Angeles area. They've been a good lab for the 18 - 20 years I've been using them. Their E-6 service is superb; their B&W service is great also. I live near them so I walk my film rather than mailing. Turnaround time is quick.
If you're near LA, "The Icon" is the best I've ever worked with. On Wilshire. They have a website too. They do lots of mailout work too.
gregarpp, are you a very forgetful person or something? :confused:
You are the person who started the thread I spoke to above - just 3 weeks ago... Did you forget that you already asked the question and got over 30 replies? See the link below:
Where are people sending B&W film (http://www.rangefinderforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17398)
Maybe he didn't like the answers; maybe he's checking to see if we've changed our opinions. Who knows? The question seemed familiar but I never checked that it was the same asker.
I thought there was an odd sense of deja lu (ok, deja vu).
