    thught folks may wish to know. I do my own processing now but used to use Metro. They were first class in those days. (4years ago ish) Depending on price this could be a good offer. Metro are a prolab with hands on control of processes.

    Metro charge 5.40 for dev only... so that's 54 quid of developing for 1 5roll pack. Not so sure on this considering I do my own c-41 stuff and get 12 rolls of 120 done at home for 12quid and am pretty sure I don't spend the extra 42quid on 1 5roll pack of film.
    But, yes, Metro are apparently a very pro lab, I don't doubt that but from an amateur's point of view this offer isn't such a good deal.

    £54 for 1 5 roll pack?....is it not £27 for 1 5 roll pack?

    I use Palm Lab in Birmingham - they are a pro lab offering everything from full digital services to B&W and Colour handprinting.

    They charge £4.50 inc. VAT for either C41 or E6 (120) per roll.

    I meant it's 54quid of processing charges and what you get is 1 5roll pack. It's cheaper to dev your own and buy a pack of film off of ebay, or even some online places have them for fairly cheap.
    I don't know what full prices are for the 5 roll pack because I tend to buy out of date stuff off of ebay where I get film for £1-£2 a roll.
