    The Noritsu V30 is a bigger machine and is capable of doing 120/220 as well as 35mm. The T15 is smaller and only does 35mm. Either one is much cheaper to run than the Jobo IF (a big if) you have enough volume. Even the T15 which is designed for low volume you must process at least 10 roll a day to keep the process stable. The V30 would need even more. The Jobo is a one shot processor which use the chemical only once and thus you can mix just enough chemical for the 1 roll but the cost per roll would be high. The Noritsu has fully automatic replenishment system. A brand new Noritsu is very expensive but since a lot of labs get out of business so they are cheap on the used market.

    I live near a small town and we have two drug stores that run minilabs.

    I've done all my own processing of B/W, C41 and E6. It's just too easy.

    I know Johnson Camera in Syracuse, NY does B/W, C41 and sends E6 out.
    George Street Camera in New Bruswick, NJ does C41.
    The two Targets next to me do digital only, I'm not sure if they accept film even to send out. Never asked.
    The closest WalMart to me is like stepping into a third world country, I walked in once, and walked right out. Not sure what they do.
    CVS is hit and miss, some have them, some don't. Same with Walgreens.
    Not sure about Duane Reade in NYC
    B&H will develop everything up to 8x10 E6

    One aspect completely neglectect so far is the massive difference worldwide in market share of minilabs versus industrial fotofinishers in the past.

    I only recently started shooting film and took my first couple rolls to get developed at the local minilab. Thinking hey, they must be able to process this and give me the negatives back without issue... I scanned them with my new V600 and was completely disappointed. First of all they threw my double exposures in the trash thinking they were junk (probably - but I still want to see them!!!) And looking at the negs closer founds streaks and spots that I wasn't sure should be there. I then shot another couple rolls and took it to a pro lab about 40min away and the results were what I originally expected - a million times better. I will never go back to this place again. I think it's pro labs from here on out with film. A buck or two is no good reason to risk shitty results. If I had a little more time/space I would give it a go myself but I'm not quite there yet.

    Cheers
