    Basel, Switzerland

    It looks like I'll be moving to Basel for a while. Are there any APUGgers there? And can anyone recommend a good lab which can process/scan roll and sheet film?

    Thanks Marc. Another question I forgot... Does anyone know of any studio space in the neighbourhood? Preferably not ruinously expensive!

    There are one or two local places that will develop 120, but more recently I've found it considerably cheaper and just as quick to post my film to Bildwerk Bern: http://www.bildwerk-bern.ch/angebot/...twicklung.html with good results.

    No idea about studio space.

    Hi Ian and Europan,

    I am also in Basel but dont have time on Saturdays, but PM me as I do have some time during the working day and work in town.

    For 120 processing, I usually send back to the UK.

    35mm prints and E6, Lörrach and Weil have a shop (Stober) which will handle these for you. CH has always been very expensive when I tried getting D&P done here.

    As for studios - I am also looking and will let you know what I find.

    I've spent plenty of time in Switzerland (dad was born there, and I have a lot of cousins there), and one thing I will say about it... nothing's cheap, that's for sure!! Still, Basel is a cool little city, has this marvelous contemporary art museum, and a quick ride to Zuerich, a fave city of mine.

    Good luck with your move, Ian.

    Don't miss visiting Bern as long as you are in Switzerland. And the lakes around Interlaken. And Lago Maggiore. And, and, and...

    An appetizer for Bern:

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. It's been a fairly frantic few weeks so apologies for going quiet.

    zeta3 - you sure are right about the costs of process and print here. I was charged CHF 123 (about $130) for two rolls of 35mm FP4+. It would be cheaper for me to fly home and post it to Ilford!

    *$£&*@ !

    Where? Name and shame.

    Developing should certainly be no more than about 7 or 8 francs a roll, less if you send it away. Unless you got some incredible prints you have been mightily ripped off.
