    If anyone in australia requires services from films shot in a Diana / Holga or Lomo camera or the like my lab is capable of providing a full range of process, printing and scanning services from these materials.

    Toy cameras are addictive

    I have three dianas/clones plus I just gave holgas to my wife and kids for Christmas. I even purchased a melted Diana so I could take the lens and put it on a Holga. It's kind of a sickness but it's pretty fun too

    Good luck.

    There are plenty of places to get your film processed in L.A. Photo Impact is very good, as is Richard's Photo Lab. Freestyle also sends film out to a pretty decent lab (don't know which one, sorry) so you can just drop your film off while you shop...with a one or two day turnaround in most cases. Not bad if you don't need to see your results immediately. There's a place on Sunset right across the street from the old L.A. Color Lab that I keep telling myself I'm going to try. And of course there is the venerable A&I, which used to provide better service, but is still OK. I miss the old Chrome n R lab on Beverly Blvd., though...they provided great personalized service.

    Concerning renting darkrooms, that topic pops up here every now and then. You may be able to find some pointers by searching on "rental darkrooms" here on APUG; or check your Yellow Pages. You don't really need to rent a darkroom to develop film to negatives, though; you can do that for $50-$100 in equipment and starter chemicals, with no need for a full darkroom (just a space you can make dark, such as a closet or bathroom, for a few minutes). Darkroom rental is more likely to be necessary for making enlargements from your negatives.

    One other point: As you're in LA, you'll probably find Freestyle a more convenient source for film than B&H, since Freestyle is in California. That'll make for quicker and/or less expensive shipping, if nothing else.

    You don't need a darkroom to develop 120 film. Check out this guy- he's sort of an idiot, but he shows how to do it using a changing bag and a kitty litter tray:

    if you do the walmart thing,
    prints actually come out very well and were very cheap ($5 for processing and printing 16 shots)
    my only beef is that my prints usually come back somewhat small (only a littl ebigger than the negative).
    there is a post on flikr with detailed instuctions, just google "120 film processing walmart" and it should come out
