    Agreed....but at least a top-quaiity reasonably-priced service, like Ilford's, will show what can be done, and maybe encourage users to try darkroom work for themselves. And, OTOH, not everyone has the time, inclination or space to set up a darkroom.

    No darkroom really needed
    If you are satisfied with prints from scans all you need is a tank, a reel, a changing bag, and a clean place to hang the negs to dry.
    Then send the negs to the scanner/printer. Should be cheaper and faster.

    Quite right too. I'm sure a lot of folks here just develop and scan. Film processing is really quite easy, takes no space and is very economical (no, I don't work for Patterson!) Nothing beats the thrill of pulling out that freshly developed film from the tank. I don't want to come over all preachey about developing your own negs, but everyone should try it, there will be no going back!

    The old expression in the Ad world is you can have it good, fast, or cheap. Pick two!

    I think it is great that Ilford offers this.

    At IlfordLab it's actually cheaper to send a roll and have it developed and printed.

    Have you asked them?

    You'd might get a more satisfactory answer than guesswork in a thread from those of us who don't work for them

    There is only a SINGLE film developing lab in all of California? That can't be possible!

    Please try to read a little more carefully.

    There are still a number of decent labs that do color but there is only one that I know of that does real B&W developing and printing.

    There are more than one... if Los Angeles is to be considered a part of CA.

    Real B&W (silver) PRINTING may be a different story, though.

    But this really doesn'thelp out the OP with the "Harmon problem".
