    The company I used in NYC went out of business. I'm looking for a new one to process C41 and E6 for 6x7 120 film. I want them to return the film spotlessly clean and flat. They have to cut 3+3+4 and insert in plastic. Since I moved to NJ, I'll be shipping so I'm not limited geographically.

    Any recommendations for firms? (No. I cannot develop them myself.)

    Hi,
    I've used Praus Productions, in Rochester, for a couple years based on recommendations from others. Its always worked well for me. I've also called a few times with questions about which film to use etc. and gotten great answers and good conversation.

    Here's the website:

    I'd think Dwayne's would be a good place to start...

    Another thumbs-up for Praus, though I've only used them for 35mm E6 work so far.

    Citizen's Photo in Portland OR does C-41 including sheet film, I didn't ask about other processes. Seemed like a pretty reasonable price too, 2.15 for 4x5 negs

    I too would like a recommendation in NYC. If you want to mail away, I have used North Coast Photo in San Diego(?) a few times. My film came back spotless, perfect really, sleeved and with great scans. Don't now recall about cutting 3+3+4.

    Why are all the best labs west of the Mississippi?
