Online labs that scan 120

Anyone have recommendations for labs in the US that do a good job processing and scanning 120 film?

There are many that will process the film, but I haven't found anyone that does a great job scanning. Many say the scans are "hand processed" but they still end up over sharpened and with too much contrast.

I've had excellent service from Bluemoon Camera and Machine in Portland, Oregon. My E-6 and C-41 always look fresh and clean. I assume some of this is because they do excellent chemical control. I have never used their scanning service so I can't comment on that.

I'm not affiliated with Bluemoon.

I've talked to a real person at Bluemoon so I'm sure that would follow verbal or written instructions.

The Darkroom scans 120. They scan to 6x7, but not sure if they scan to 6x9.

I send my film to The Findlab. Last week they took the time to send some samples of scans from the rolls I had sent in. I told them, no, too dark and sent some rough edits back for them to see. They adjusted accordingly before completing the scans

I've been using Millers in Pittsburgh Kansas and have been satisfied with the results and their service. You do have to open an account though with them.

Precision Camera does 120. They have a develop and scan special for I think $12 if you look around on their site. Their scans are pretty high resolution and good, though sometimes a hair contrasty for me.

I would be shocked if Richard Photo Lab didn't do 120 as well.

Precision Camera is an advertiser, and you can find their developing and scanning special on the left hand sidebar on the RFF home page. They have a good price to scan resolution ratio. Other labs charge much more for scans of similar resolution (120 6x6: 4760x4832px).

I've not used Richard Photo Lab, but they do 120 scanning as well.
