    Well small town large pharmacies and medium sized supermarkets in UK all had mini labs.

    Medium sized towns dedicated mini lab shops a few blocks apart

    20 mind turn around

    but by 2005 they were vanishing like witches or warlocks.

    Happily, I still have three camera stores within 30 miles of my house which have minilabs.
    Except for traveling due north, I am set.

    Haven't had a reason to see what the Walgreens's, CVS's, etc are doing.

    this thread says stuff that might be helpful
    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum172/...-services.html

    there are a couple of labs that sponsor / advertise on apug that do great work
    darkroom.com
    bluemooncamera.com

    i've never used millers,
    but some here swear by them
    you set up an account, and are good to go ..
    millerslab.com

    if you find a good lab, add it to the lab services thread

    good luck ..

    john

    ps. if you have a RITE AID pharmacy near you, they send out to fuji
    ( or did last year ) but make sure they still give your film back ...
    they hadn't changed over to the "process your film and beam up the files" yet ..

    Thanks for the link. I know about several of the send-out labs, I was hoping to find something closer (and cheaper!)

Since those labs are closing their processors are for sale and cheap like this one on ebay.

    So how much liquid does it take to feed one of these things? It's cheaper than a new Jobo, so it should be a viable alternative for some people.

    ijust googled "houston tx + photolab"
    and came up with http://www.azphoto.com
    they are a pro lab so the quality is good
    not 2$ .. but a few dollars more than that
    so you won't be at the mercy of a 17 year old
    girl with boy-on-the-brain-syndrome
    ( like the local dunkindonut-girls seem to all have )
    azphoto will process everything
    b/w, color chromes, 35mm-8x10
    i wish there was something like that up here
    in RI where i am, no one left to process anything
    bigger than 35mm/120 unless i spend the bucks on postage
    or spend 4hours in the car.

    good luck!

    This one(Noritsu) is more then a Jobo!

I also got a bit of Aunt Mary's laundry, and Beau Jack, the dog, peeing on a fence, and a row of potted tuberous begonias on the porch and 78 trees and a million pebbles in the driveway and more. It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    what is wrong with just using a Patterson and plastic bowl (for temper bath)?

    My local photo shop sells a multi tank insert for 4x5
