    Photo Labs in NYC

    OK where are the good pro labs in NYC? I've been going to Duggal, but they can't be the only ones. Tell me about labs that do E-6 the same day, B&W plus proof in 1 day, at minimum.

    Thanks, Art.

    Modernage. I use the main location in midtown (6th Av. around 45th St.). Normal 4-hour turnaround on E-6. They handle sheet film up to 11x14" for E-6. Friendlier service than Duggal.

    ...and are easy to get to via MTA Metro North. (Jim:We'll definitely talk Saturday. If you meet all my requirements and you do Cibachromes too, you'd be a demigod in my eyes.)

    Just a few minor demands.

    Not sure if Modernage is open weekends. I suspect not, but it's not impossible. www.modernage.com for contact info.

    Have you guys ever used "Spectra" ?
    Are they good at B&W job?
    As far as I know, they don't do toning, and all the prints I got is RC based.

    Spectra is very uneven. I've known people who have gotten great results through certain branches of Spectra for a while, and then the management shuffles and quality changes. I tried them for a while and wasn't satisfied with the results, but they always seem to be changing, so someone else might have a different experience.

    Anyone have experience with C-Lab? They are on Broadway near Prince.

    I've never used Modernage myself but know two people who have and were happey with their service and quality. One of these people uses the lab quite frequently.

    I haven't used C-Lab myself, but they've been around for a long time. That's no guarantee of anything, really. There are some labs that have stayed in business despite doing inconsistent work.

    Kenneth Taranto is also a great lab.

    For B&W, MVlabs is considered one of the best.
