Yeah, yeah I know that "No Va" in Spanish means "It won't go" or "It does not move", but I am not talking about a car. Where can I go to get C41 120 film processed in the Herndon Virginia area?

Chrome, in Georgetown, if you can't find anything closer.

They moved out of Georgetown to MacArthur Blvd as of March 1.

Excellent C-41 service.

Penn Camera in Tysons will soup 120 C-41 on-site. They do a good job, at a far more economical price than Chrome/Dodge.

Maybe they are better at C-41, but chrome absolutely wrecked a couple rolls of E-6 I had done there.

Just wanted to say that I tried Dodge Chrome in Silver Spring and the C41 and E6 all look great. Will definitely be using them from now on.

I've had varying results from Chrome over the years. The last processing I had them do was a roll of 120 Ektar 100 and while the results were acceptable, way overpriced. Take Scott's advice and go to Penn. $9.98 for 120 processing and a contact sheet. Chrome's price is $18.95 for same. 5x5 proof prints are $.89 at Penn, $1.15 at Chrome. If you need exhibition quality printing, send the negatives to Bob Carnie.

The wal-mart in Sterling has send out service. Unbeatable pricing.

Is Dodge Chrome in Silver Spring the old Dynacolor [or was it Colorfax?] processing near the railroad station?

Yep, still there and quite busy.

I just picked up a pile of 4x5 and 8x10 B&W negs there yesterday.

I've always had TERRIBLE experiences at Penn. Both the Fair Lakes and Tysons locations have let me down, and treated me like dirt.

I'm going to stick with shipping out to Dwayne's. Inexpensive dev and scans.

With Dwaynes I had real dirt problems as well as them printing red rock in the foreground as green because they thought that it should be grass. I constantly got stuck for the cost of mailing everything back to them.

Sirius-

I'm hearing and reading from more people that are having/have had problems with Dwayne's. It's unfortunate because their prices are so reasonable for dev and scans...my local place (McClanahan in Warrenton) will dev 120 for $3 bucks, but to get them scanned to a disk is $15 -.-

Does anyone have experience with Dodge Chrome's pricing for scans? I requested a quote on their site, but haven't heard back yet.

I was having a problem with Penn Camera processing 120 in the past. Under the new management as Calumet, though, they're doing a stand-up job, at least at the E Street location downtown.

For Dodge/Chrome's pricing, - http://www.dodgechrome.com/downloads/DC-Price_Sheet.pdf

I think they're a little expensive for what they offer, but they're about the only game in town. I just wish they could offer real drum scans of all sizes of film. Instead, anything bigger than 4x5 (and maybe even 4x5) has to be done on an Epson flatbed scanner. Which I can do at home for free. They have an Imacon for doing medium format and 35mm scans.
