    Zurich, Switzerland

    Hi,

    I have just relocated to Zurich and I'd like to find a reliable lab that develops films (B/W and color, both 35 and 120).
    In previous threads, fellows APUGers recommended Studio 13. Is there any other place - or reliable, online service in Zurich. I only need development, no scanning.

    Thanks
    Luciano

    Almost a year late, but I'm looking for labs in Switzerland, myself. I have no experience with these places, but through the internet and word of mouth, I've found ..

    Ars-Imago: http://www.ars-imago.com/ in Zug, is dedicated to film. They do developing: B&W, C-41, E-6
    Chromo Byte: http://www.chromobyte.ch/ in Basel
    ifolor: http://www.ifolor.ch/en .. is Foto Kreuzlingen, which has been around since the 1960s I think

    I asked the earlier this week, and apparently InterDiscount (http://www.interdiscount.ch/idshop/index.jsf) does developing. The girl behind the counter said so, and I saw a little drop-off desk. I have no idea how it (if?) works, but I will be checking.

    I've heard MIGROS does, or did, developing, but I'm not sure about now. I'll need to check into that, too.

    Migros & Coop both do developing as well, Coop & Interdiscount are actually part of the same chain. I have no idea what their quality is like and they only do bog standard 35mm deveopling as far as I know. If you shoot anything else then you will have to go elsewhere.

    In case anyone cares, MIGROS DOES do film development - apparently both 135 and 120. It takes 10 days, and C-41 neg-only development is 3.90-CHf which is cheap. E-6 is 10-CHf, I think.

    Don't expect high quality from Migros.

    I warmly recommend FotoPro Bären at Löwenstrasse (www.fotobaeren.ch). They are doing a great job, and are very experienced.

    I got my roll back from Migros yesterday - considering that it was 4 or 5 years expired, they did a good job. I wonder how their E-6 is ..

    Actually you were right. I got a roll of C-41 done recently and they did a lousy job. The prints were nice, but I didn't ask for them - peculiarly only 13 our of 36 - and they don't even give you a plastic sleeve for your negatives. I'll be using someone else from now on.
