    Jacksonville, FL is certainly closer than New York, but you might want to try LTI Photographic Service. I recently started using them after my previous lab mishandled my film and did not want to take responsibility. LTI has a very good reputation as far as I can tell.

    Pro Photo Imaging in Lakeland,FL. is a good lab.They mainly do C-41 B&W and color neg.Having used them for many years,I can tell you they value the customer.I've hardly had problems w/them and they are quick to solve any possible issues.

    Dale???? What? Have you called them? They have always been so great!

    By coincidence, I called Reed Photo yesterday to inquire on return postage for E-6 processing. They quoted me approximately $6 for returning 3 rolls via first class mail. Priority mail would have been more expensive, but not sure how much more. I didn't think that was too bad if, in fact, that's what they charge.

    Typically I've had my film returned via UPS as it gets to my office overnight and I'm usually mixing sheets and rolls. They've charged me $12 for shipping and packaging and I know the ups portion is less than $5 between DEN and COS. But I've never had a single lab error from them.

    In comparison another lab I've used - Slideprinter charges nothing for shipping on processing orders over $50 and $4.95 on orders under $50. I've used them once and had a minor problem with the roll film, but the sheet film all came back perfect. Slideprinter is also all dip-n-dunk for E-6 and C-41.

    Slideprinter is also $.50 cheaper per sheet E6 or C41 and a bit cheaper per roll.

    I am going to talk to the owners a bit more about the idea of giving a discount if you send in a complete run of film.

    • Our Dip-n-Dunk machines use Patterson/type reels

    a run consists of:
    • 8 rolls of 35mm 36exp
    • 5 rolls of 220
    • 10 rolls of 120
    • and combination of these
    • 8 sheets of 4x5 +1 roll of 35mm 36exp


    So I would like to make a "Run" Charge separate from the "Per roll" charge as to give a break to those who us us most.

    I will talk to them Monday and see if this can be arranged. We have discussed it in the past and they seemed open to it. It may make the difference to those that need to ship their film off.

    I'll be in touch or contact me directly.

    After looking at the slides, they are a bit underexposed, so I'm sure their machine just printed them as they were scanned. The scans and prints are simply awful as-is, but I was able to improve them in PS.

    Dales scan:


    My rework:

    On the other hand, the Kodachrome slide I sent in was made into nice prints which are very accurate. I'm impressed with that.

    Once, for the funeral of a family member, I needed a couple of 35mm slides scanned and printed 16X20 and a couple of prints scanned, cleaned up and printed 8X10. I took them over to their lab in San Clemente. Their normal turnaround time would have been after the funeral. I asked them if they could work it in. They said they'd see what they could do. They called me at home three hours later and said they were ready-no extra charge.

    Swan lists Freestyle as one of the dealers that uses them.
