Recommended Film Processing Labs!

The problem with processing labs is one of consistancy, one that is good one month, can return scratched negs the next.
Have you considered processing your own?..This is what I now do....all you need is a processing tank, spirals, plus a film changing bag to load film into the tank in daylight and you're away!..The price of dev & fix is cheap, and you'll get far more satisfaction as well as consistant results.

Metrocolor Labs in Birmingham, clean, cheap, quick (48 hours), never a scratch, never a loss. I've used them for years and see no reason to change. More keenly priced than Peak too.

Quote:Many of the labs we've tested over the years are still going,

Dlab7 gave me excellent results for 120 E6 processing.

Unfortunately they no longer offer this service.

Am thinking of using Peak Imaging and doing my own scans.

Sent off my first roll from "new" TLR to Peak Imaging today.

Sent an email query to them and got reply within 25 minutes.

Must be good. Smile

Shot a roll of HP5+ off this afternoon, Denny.

Felt much more comfortable with the camera. Smile

Quote:I have my own film scanner now, and the sample images I've run through it have been great - certainly better than 'high street' quality, and at least as good as the 'standard' quality from Peak Imaging.

Just out of interest, Darren, is it a dedicated film scanner or a flatbed type?

can I recommend MYSELF to process film for EPZ members ? I have a professional Traditional Darkroom, three enlargers, lots of chemicals and TIME but hardly any WORK !!!! -- Nobody WANTS photographers any more around here -- a High Street Studio has closed down and the Proprietor is doing what I have been doing over 30 years ie work from HOME -- no Rent,Commercial Business Rates to pay etc so I can offer B&W 120, 127 and 35mm Film process and rough contact sheet for 1-50 a roll -- please don't ask about 'do I SCAN onto CD' as I don't know how to do it BUT I CAN do CLEAN, UNSCRATCHED negs in re-cycled neg sleeves ( you don't get NEW ones at that price ! ) Please contact me by Private Message -- Thanks-- Peter.

Anyone have any info or opinion on Lab 35 which appears to have changed hands and is now True Colour Imaging Ltd? Am still using old-fashioned film which has to be developed.

Thank you.

If in London,CLUB 35 has been my lab for 35mm...They do a lot of services.Look up website.
120 B/W I process myself though.Old habits die hard.

I have used Club35 quite a lot, usually for 120-film colour negative processing, scanning, and printing, and am very satisfied with them. Smile
