    Melbourne: Looking for film E6/C41 processing near CBD or Clayton/Monash Uni

    Hi Guys/gals

    I'm looking for inexpensive film E6/C41 processing near CBD, and accessible via public transport. Vanbar in Fitzroy is possibly(?) my best option but I don't really know what's what in the C41/E6 world so any suggestions would be appreciated. Cost is a bigger factor than quality, I don't want expensive processing.

    Also seeking options around Monash Uni in Clayton, if any.

    Thanks
    JJ

    Just near Richmond station is Bond imaging, but they've cut down on their lab hours in recent months. Or Prism in North Melbourne, or good old Michaels on Elisabeth St, which still has a mighty fine lab. Bond & Michaels still do C41 in 5x4", which Prism & Vanbar don't do...

    Nothing that I know of around Monash.

    I'll second Marc's recommendations.

    unfortunately Pinewood went belly-up a few years ago

    Vanbars is in a prick of a place if coming from south-east (by car), don't know what public transport options would get you there (train into city, tram to Fitzroy??). They have/had? a mail-in service but I've never used it.

    PRISM in North Melbourne is accessible by No. 57 (North Melbourne/W. Brunswick) tram or 49, 59 trams up Elizabeth Street. E6 Tuesday, Thursday, $12.60 (120 format). C41 processing on-demand. Michaels insists on upfront payment and have wrecked x2 of my 120 rolls (last two frames sliced! — "always a risk that might happen", says she!!) — not recommended at all.

    Cost of E6 and C41 processing will continue to rise over time because the market for both is faltering and keeping it going is costly.

    Thanks guys/gals.

    It's interesting to hear user experience/feedback as well.
