    Photo labs in the LA area

    Hey folks,

    I just dropped off one of my rolls of film at the Icon photo lab for a whopping $33 dollars! That includes development of the film, 36 4x6 prints, and a scan of each negative (5mb).

    The only reason I had to take it there was because I had to push the film +1 stop and seeing as I do not have access to a dark room at the moment, I had to find a lab that would be able to push film. I've been looking online, but most of the photo labs in LA seem pretty pricey.

    Do you guys have any recommendations for a good, reliable, AND AFFORDABLE! photo lab in the Los Angeles area?

    Thanks!

    Jason

    If you're doing color, you might also try Colortek on Jefferson in Culver City.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I had no idea Samy's developed film. I'll have to check out their services next time.

    Samy's sends out to A&I. But they seem to charge less than A&I charges directly to customers on some work.

    A&I does very good work. A little expensive, but worth it.

    PC Colour Lab does fairly good work and is reasonably priced. They're located in Downtown near Temple & Center (east of Alameda).

    if you're shooting black and white you should start processing yourself. i live in hollywood and used to go to photo impact and a&i. as a whole, they are terrible compared to the job i'm doing now. plus, i've only been processing for a month and have already saved about $500. i'm also able to choose the best developer for the type of film i'm using, which is something the lab doesn't do.
