    Has anyone noticed a NEW Film processing lab has just opened in St. Kilda???

    Seems hard to believe - it's underneath the Astor Theatre - so you can go and watch a film, whilst they process your film!!

    Not Large Format though, only up to 120 format. I hope they survive!!! http://www.lightleaksphoto.com/

    Enthusiast labs seem to pop up all over the place nowadays, I've seen several open in my own country lately. The best thing is they're all very focused on quality instead of volume.

    Seems from their price list that they're only doing C-41 at the moment. B&W coming soon, but no mention of E-6.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Marc. Pity they're in St Kilda (but that's my problem, not theirs).

    LJH, they do mention E6 - they're not doing it because it needs volume to justify the chemicals.

    I'm opening full time as of 21st of June, don't have a commercial premise, though can pick up and drop off in in city, and also have shared dark room in Brunswick East.

    I'll process E-6 in all formats up to 4x5" atm.

    I think it's only a natural evolution. As film photography transforms from mass market to a niche market the old style labs that depended on big volume and less discerning customers will give way for a new generation of labs with passionate people who service passionate customers.
