    I mail my colour film these days. I try not to mail during hot weather - I can keep stuff in the freezer for awhile if I need to wait for better weather. If I really need the film processed quickly I can always courier it.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    One suggestion. If they are pulling the lab soon, talk to them and see if you can buy up their leftover C-41 chemicals.
    Then you can process the film yourself for quite some time.

    I would talk to family members and try option 2. Until you don't try you cannot know if it really stinks so much that it bothers people in the house. If option 2 turns up being too smelly, fall back on option 3.

    A ventilation fan in the darkroom will do wonders for the odour problems.

    I do my own black and white, plan to get back into color but reluctant because I don't have enough time to do the black and white I shoot. Send color out, so far to Dwayne's but open to changing (no problems with their processing but I've been getting scans back which are inconsistent - just need to get a V700 and be done with that.)

    Just send it out. Never had a problem. I won't worry about the temperature either. At most it's three days. That's not going to hurt it.
