    I once worked for a small weekly paper. Often, this kind of newspaper will have a camera for journalists to use, and a budget that prevents them from replacing any perfectly usable piece of equipment... or even a DOS word processing program on a modern windows machine just to create a flat text file to send to the publishing company. Quark Xpress and XYwrite - that was an odd combination.

    Miller's Lab is terrific. With their turnaround and pricing, I doubt you could do it any cheaper yourself. Plus, you get scans on disk which would more than suffice for most newspapers.

    +1 on the CatLabs kit. It uses separate bleach and fix. My first 2 batches of c-41 were easy and the results were great. Once I get an efficient process down, it should come out to around $1.25 per roll, including shipping. Omer was real helpful in answering my questions.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    The kit mentioned above does sound good due to the separate bleach/fix. Anyone else used it? What temps can you develop at with that set of chemistry?

    I have no clue where to start. I've only ever developed b&w, so I have no idea how to go about this. I need some sort of instructions! And maybe some more equipment too...?

    Is the Rollei kit a lot easier for a beginner to start with?

    The kit has instructions with it and they do not mention the lower temperature processing - it only uses 101 fahranheit. I have a Phototherm Model 14 constant temperature bath. It's simple and works real well. It is discontinued, but findable.

    Here are the instructions:

    My local Costco stopped processing film about six months ago, but other nearby Costcos still process 35mm film. Too bad they do not process 120 and 4"x5" film.
