    Meridian Pro (Dwayne's) Processing Experiences?

    My old favorite 3 sources for color medium format processing have either let me down with recent quality issues or switched to all-digital. In searching for new sources, I found Meridian looking interesting. Is anyone using them? Opinions?

    I started using Dwayne's a few months ago. I have been happy with the quality of the work. The only thing that I did not like was that 35mm film was cut into strips of 4 and 120 film was cut into strips of 2. After I start putting instructions to cut 36mm into strips of 6 and 120 into strips of 4, they have usually complied [ a roll of 120 came back as 2 3 3 4!].

    Kodak processing could never get that right. Automatic equipment?

    On the other hand, when the C330's lens door failed [after a CLA] failed to open so that the roll came back unexposed, Dwayne's did not charge me for the roll.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I am about to send them a load of color work I cannot seem to get to myself; thanks for the heads up about the strange negative cutting practice!

    You can also request that your negatives not be cut at all. I request my slide film uncut. (I've got a local lab that can make some pretty reasonable prints from my slide film, but their equipment can't deal with mounted film.)

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    I've been using them since I resumed shooting Kodachrome. (As if I have a choice?) I've been happy with them and I'm thinking of trying them for E6 as well.
