    I've stopped developing at Walgreens and send all of my stuff out now to a little-known group of guys in Jacksonville, FL called Flair Photography, 4 bucks to process my c41 120. Their 35mm I believe is not far from that.

    Walgreens was getting fingerprints on my negs and I've seen how the girls there handle film, though very attractive I wouldn't let any of them near my film equipment.

    I use Dwaynes photo. www.dwaynesphoto.com
    Fast turnaround, reasonable prices. Last time I sent a couple of rolls, I got back very dust scans. Nevr had this problem before, and hope it's just an anomaly. I will try them again, but request a clean scan.

    j-dogg: I'm in Jacksonville, never heard of Flair Photography. Google turns up nothing in Jacksonville. Do you have a url, address, phone #? When I don't do it myself, I use the pro lab here, Phototechnika (www.phototechnika.com) and have been totally satisfied. They do C-41, E-6, B&W, printing and scanning.

    Thanks everyone. Dwaynes' rates are really pretty good. Including shipping, they are comparable to what I was paying at Walmart anyway.
    f/22 and be there.

    i found costco does the bet job of all the 1 hour or so developers. The one by me gives mail out developers a run for their money. $7 for development and 4x6 prints. and they got a new machine a few months ago for development.

    The cheapest Costco membership is $55. That's way too much for me to justify.

    I just started processing my own C41 two weeks ago. It's surprisingly easy.

    With lab prices starting at $3 for 135 and upwards of $7/roll for 120, I cut my losses and just started doing it myself. That said, I do have a scanner and access to a tempered water system. Otherwise, I would probably say to try Costco..

    The money you will save on toilet paper alone will make the membership pay for itself .

    regarding costco, you might go to the customer service desk and ask if you need a membership to use the photo lab. you do not need a membership to use the pharmacy or the tire dept or the hearing aid center or to see the eye dr so it might be the same for the photo lab.
