    Do you have any comments on other processing services?

    Looked at that lab's website and it seems to just be an average High Street minilab with no real services other than normal Kodak franchise package, and I've seen similar in the UK & other parts of the world even Chile & Peru :D

    Perhaps I should be more specific. 36x develop + scan at 3000x2000 for £4/film inc ret postage with no quality issues. Not so average, because I can't match this local to me in the Preston area.

    I'm going to give them a try. Shoot mostly b&w, some digital, and some colour film - this might be a good option. Thanks

    I've started to use them for C-41 and am delighted with their standards. Their services are certainly well above Ian's suggestion of an "average High Street minilab" :D ....their website also suggests that they provide services for professional and commercial photographers.

    I'm giving them a try as well, lets hope they are as good as the recommendations!
