    I'm thinking of getting into medium format but I was wondering if there are any places that would process 120 film locally. I've just started processing my own B&W so this would be mostly for C-41.

    Since I live in Antioch, Stockton might also work. By the way I don't have any problems mailing it out for processing but trying to find out all my options.

    I live out in Concord (actually more like Clayton) and for all my lab procesing I use Action Photo Service who are excellent. Ive had slides, c41, and B/W developed there with excellent quality and turnaround time (same day if dropped off before 10am). They are in downtown concord. Their website is: http://www.actionphotoservice.com/
    It may be far out for Antioch though...

    Thanks for the tip Josh. It wouldn't be too far of a drive from Antioch. Heck just looking at their location, I could go to Fry's Electronics afterwards!

    No problem :smile: . I had a few rolls of 120 Ektar developed there last month and they came out great! And Fry's too is a plus.

    I developed my back and white in the photo lab at DVC. But when I needed E6 or C41 I took it to Action Photo and had no problems with them.

    Thanks for the heads up there dpn. I'll definitely be sending some test rolls to both labs and see what kind of results I'll get.

    To add to this, I just had two rolls of chrome (Fuji Astia 100f and Velvia 100) developed, and they came out crisp and dust free.
