    Not sure where to post this, but seems like a lot of rental darkroom questions get posted here.

    So a question for SF Bay Area Apuger's. Does anyone have any experience with the Harvey Milk Photo Center in San Francisco? I have been using a friends darkroom but feel like I'm abusing the privilege and am looking for an alternative.

    There is a California specific group here-

    I do know that the Harvey Milk Center darkrooms were recently refurbished and I have heard good things from a couple of people using it.

    I've also heard good things about it and mean to check it out.

    I print regularly at Rayko on Third St., they have a great range from group or private b&w and color rooms to anything you need for finishing, even a rental studio.
    Prices are reasonable too.

    Just printed last night at Rayko and it's a great place. The prices are reasonable but can add up quickly. I did go down and check out Harvey Milk and the facility looks very good, plus the staff seems quite helpful. They scheduled a private orientation for me on Thur. since my Sat. are booked through the end of May.

    I'd still would like to hear from anyone who is printing at Harvey Milk.

    Well I went for the orientation and ended up signing up for a 6 month membership. Prices are super reasonable and the staff is very helpful. The facility is very nice too. I've printed there twice now and am quite happy.
