    You mentioned Champion Promicrol in the link of my post, which is why I asked. Thanks for clarifying.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I have gotten more responses than I first imagined but it seems I may have found my man. Will keep all you others in mind if something extraordinary comes up.

    Thank you, once again.

    Mentioned it briefly in an earlier post, but here it goes:

    -Room-temperature varies. This causes the temperature of developer to lower in mid-developing. It´s hard getting consistant results this way. Did a test on the fixer which was about 20 degrees when I poured it in and 18 when I poured it out.
    -It takes time. Time that could be spent taking pictures.
    -Sometimes I have to travel home from overseas, just to develop films. Now I can ship them off instead and save the trip home.

    So for me this is personally the best option.

    Yes I was trying out Promicrol for the last year to see what results I get from it but I was using this on my own films. Infact I am quite pleased with the results from Promicrol but it's still a work in progress.

    Our customer's films are processed in D76 @ 1+1. I use D76 because how can you go wrong with it!!!!!!

    We really should start a full-service APUG lab. Everybody buys in for $100 to get the place fully outfitted, then the processing price goes to materials + some basic wage + s&h. All very transparent and easy to manage.

    There's a small one-man lab in northern Sweden who probably can develop in D76 as well. I've sent a few rolls for C41 development there and haven't had any issues so far.

    An Antipodean Option..

    Given that the OP specifies D-76,this is unlikely to find favor,but,I have to ask -why D-76 ?
    I am running a replenished XTOL line,and it really is a step-up from good old D-76 in any of the parameters that matter.
    And I used D76,diluted 1:1,for many years of pro use. When Kodak,in the days they had an R&D division,released XTOL, they also rated it,against D-76(invented in the 1920's,as a reliable developer for the emerging motion picture industry) as being clearly superior. In fact,they were like a dog with a new bone.

    Nuts! -full strength ,seasoned developer ; better than my standard? Admittedly only compared with one emulsion (Neopan 400 ).And,it really is better.

    The OP would have to send his film to New Zealand,..Hobbiton.
