    Best Place to get film developed in Vancouver

    Hey

    I'm in Vancouver on business this week, and I'm wondering if anyone here can suggest a store where I can get my negatives developed at a reasonable price. I'm looking for C-41, E6, and cross processing services. I'm located downtown, and don't really have the time to trek out to the suburbs.


    Thanks!
    Shelley-Ann

    London Drugs? That's right downtown.

    I haven't used them in a long while, but if I was looking right downtown I'd talk to CustomColor to see if they will meet your needs:

    http://www.customcolorprolab.com/index.lasso

    Otherwise, I'd suggest either ABC Photocolour:

    or G King Photo:

    http://www.gkingphoto.com/index.htm

    both of whom are just slightly outside of the downtown area.

    Hope you enjoy your visit.

    Hello Shelley-Ann,

    I am rarely in Vancouver, but always use G King Photo when there (see Matt's link). A few years back they did some E-6 127 for me. They had to find their 127 hanger (they are dip and dunk) but still had it ready before closing time. Their service was top notch.

    Cheers,
    Clarence

    I can't believe no one mentioned The Lab! Faster turn around time than any of the above mentioned labs due to multiple runs during the day.

    The Lab Rules!

    I second that - the Lab is close to downtown and does excellent work. G.King and CustomColour are okay in a pinch but check out the Lab...

    My favorite lab (Island Pro Lab) closed a while ago in Victoria. Since then I have tried others in Victoria and some in Vancouver. I am not familiar with "The Lab" but I am looking to find a high quality professional lab that I can rely on.
    My experience with most of the labs that I have tried in the last couple of years was a hit and miss situation.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I have tried Custom Colour several times in the last few months and so far I am very pleased with their work.

    High quality prints and scans, from 135 and 120.
