    At Elevator we charge $45 per run, single shot all chems, 4 rolls of 120 or 6 rolls of 35 or 10 sheets of 4x5, or 5 sheets of 8x10. We can do up to 16 x20 .
    as you can see single shot and one run at a time, if you have one roll of anything to run then it is $45 bucks( we do not hold single rolls until enough clients walk in the door, and rarely do we do a single roll run. Our turn around is about 3-6 days .
    I am about to process a single job that consists of 300 4x5, 200 8x10 and 50 rolls of 120,all single shot in Pyro, this will work out to about 85 runs that I have to inspect each film as it comes off and then contact them. To me our prices are fair as this is a lot of work and considering the film, travel,time from work for the photographer our film processing is minimal.

    If the lab provides custom processing for every batch of Black & White they process (individual adjustments) then the price is fair (compare with Elevator in Toronto).

    The only factors that permit labs to charge low prices are volume, mechanization and standardization over many rolls.

    So before you leave a film with any lab, make no assumptions about either: 1) type of service being provided and 2) the price.

    Now it may be that the OP made those enquiries before leaving the film, and is just now trying to get some perspective on what the lab charged.

    D & P prices

    Hi..in Brisbane I recently paid $25 to have a 12 exp 120 processed C41, printed and images scanned to a CD ... is that pretty much the norm?? I process the B&W myself...$15 per roll for developing is a bit rich!

    John,
    Again, as others have suggested, it’s all relevant.

    Was the 120 processed by dip and dunk? How was it scanned.

    Locally (Adelaide), 120 including scanning can be done for around $10 to $12, but that is on a roller transport machine (mini lab) and auto scan. To have it done in a dip and dunk machine and hand scanned, I would expect to pay around $25.

    Here in New Zealand, typical lab charge for B&W is NZ$15-16 a roll.
    I offer custom process, XTOL or Rodinal for $6.50 a roll and have plenty of customers.
    You could be one of them..

    Send your C-41 120 to Fletcher's in Bega. It's 5 bucks a roll without no scans or prints... Not sure about pushing or pulling.

    In case the offhand reference to Elevator in my post was unclear, I do think that Elevator's price is very fair, for the service they provide.

    If I was in Toronto (and if they would have me) I would certainly consider having them do some of my work.
