    I'm going to be staying in Mar Vista until next Saturday and was wondering what a good place to get 120 slides/c41/bw processed? Cheapest/fastest possible would be nice but in the end I guess I'm not too worried. Thanks.

    A&I in Santa Monica is the place to go for quality results and quick turn around. I think they have a lab in Hollywood too. It's kind of pricey though. I take my sheet film there. I take all my rollfilm to Walmart but that's around a 2 week turn around time which won't work if you're leaving in a week or so. Can you wait till you go home?

    I use two of them:

    Icon on Wilshire near La Brea
    A&I with locations in both Santa Monica and Hollywood.

    Samys just sends it out, so be prepared to wait longer. The two labs I mentioned will turn things around in 24 hours or less.

    No, Samys processes C-41 in store. They send black & white to A&I. Slides you will have to call and ask them.

    If you get it in to them before the daily pickup, Samy's will usually turn around in 24 hours if it is process only.

    I have my velvia processed by A&I Hollywood. They do quality work, highly recommended.

    A&I in S.M. is Closed.

    I heard that as of the first of Jan 2010, A&I in S.M. is closed.
    Only the original Hollywood store remains.

    For 120 C-41, try Goldencolor on Olympic Bl. 1 Blk E. of Doheny.
    In Beverly Hills. Ask for their pro pricing guide.

    For 120 B&W go to Schulman Photo Lab on Sunset Bl.
    N. side of St. just W. of Wilcox, after " Cross Roads of The World ".
    In Hollywood.
