    looking for a good Lab for my MF color film

    The lab I have been using seems to include a coat of dust on each of my rolls of Ektar 120.

    You could drop it by at wal-mart. Not the 1-hour kiosk, the send-off kiosk. You should be able to just drop off the film in an envelope. Put 120 rollfilm in the special instructions box, and whatever size prints you want (if any).

    C-41 is standardized, so unless you need push/pull, high-res scans or fast turnaround, it doesn't make sense to use an expensive pro lab in my opinion.

    I've only used the famous Dwayne's for my C41 120 film. They did a good job for me with pretty fast turnaround.

    Stubblefield photo in my town does a superb job and usually returns everything to me the same day... from 35mm through 8x10.

    I'll second the vote for Dwayne's. I am currently waiting on a long overdue order with Dale labs. With Dwayne's a roll of E6 I mailed on Monday was back to me on Friday. My order with Dale labs is now 11 days and counting - and they charged my credit card 7 days ago.

    I'll report back if the quality was worth the wait.

    When you use a Dale Mailer their service is slow. If you mail the order in it is speedy. What did you send to them? The process E-6 only a couple of times a week or whenever they get a bunch of E-6.

    walmart (eg fuji) is fairly careless with send-out 120 developing. They always include the end of the roll with the staple in it, in the envelope of negs. often results in scratches/impressions on at least one image where it rubs it. Morons.
