    I have two trips coming up, (1) Austin Tx. during Memorial Day for 4 days and another to Boston, MA. on 12 June for a week. Can anyone advise regarding a lab/photo store in these cities with 24 hr turnaround for M F film processing?
    Also, looking for a US repair point for a Kiev 6C as mine worked great for over a year and now will not crank quite far enough to cock the shutter. Thanks for help.

    Where in the US are you? It would make any recommendations for repair shops easier.

    The Kiev distributor is in Greenwhich, CT I believe.

    They have repair services. Have never used them.

    Thanks so much for all the help. Believe I am now "good to go" in Boston area.

    In Austin, Holland Photo on Lamar in mid south Austin.

    2 hr turnaround for MF color, 24 hrs for B&W. It's a pro shop, I have all my processing done there. Excellent place.

    I had a bad experience buying a "new" Kiev 60 from them. They sent me a defective camera (bad frame spacing and severe internal image degrading reflections). Then they quoted me an obscene price for repairing it.

    Didn't know Vermont Color did repairs like this. Have used them for photo processing in the past though. Thanks
