    Friends - I am off to Prague for an extended stay and I am looking for any recommendations for a reliable B & W lab and film retailer. Any thoughts?
    thanks and cheers all!

    A good film retailer: fotoskoda. In Vodisckova street. There is a tram stop just in front of the shop.
    I don't know if they have a lab.

    Yes, the lab in Foto Skoda is definitely a first-choice.

    But they deal with huge amount of films (mostly color negative and E6) every day, so I expect they apply a very simple procedure in id11.

    You lucky person!

    Yes fotoskoda is a great place - sells Foma products too. Funnily enough they are more expensive in the Czech Republic. You could make a pilgrimage to the Foma factory.

    The Foto Škoda website claims that they can develop B&W film in T-Max, ID-11 or Microphen. Also consider Ultralab (T-max developer, not far from Foto Škoda). This is my favourite place for E-6 at the moment. Thalia Picta is another highly regarded lab. Foto Oto can process Fomapan R 100 B&W reversal film.

    FRDRX - Thank you my friend for those other recommendations! It seems though that the links for Thalia Picta and Ultralab do not work....any thoughts? I've done a google search for the names, but I am having trouble with the Czech translations to english via google. Would you have the links for them on hand? thanks again anyway for you ideas! cheers, sam
