    E6? C-41? B&W? dev only, dev and print, dev and writeto CD?

    As an aside to this, I'm always fascinated by the eBay ads for outdated film described as "ideal for Holga/Lomo" when it will cost a fortune to process!

    They always suggest 2 things. The seller is way overpricing them, and that the films were so badly stored that they will give Really Crappy colour balance

    The simple answer is to buy a dev tank and chemicals. I know that putting film through a professional lab may sound expensive but trust me that no lab today in London is raking it in through processing!

    When you say process do you mean develop only or develop/scan with prints? the price differs sharply depending on film type and options.
    My local lab does C41 and B&W (in 35mm or 120) for £2.50 a roll develop only, £5 for E6. scanning at low res is another £3.99 per roll on top and if you want prints it's going to cost you at least another £5 a roll; the costs add up quick when you want more than dev only, which is why i get develop only and scan myself. Though i'm lucky and they dev E6 and B&W twice a week so i never have to wait too long for film back.

    Love the stock photos with excessively happy people holding dslrs.

    Prices seem competitive, but not brilliant. The lack of E6 means I won't be using them though - Seeing your image projected is an addiction I'm unlikely to give up
