    Good C-41 Lab in the Mid-Atlantic?

    I've been shooting some 120 C-41 and need a lab to send to to process only in the Mid-Atlantic region. Any suggestions? Quality, quality, quality is most important!

    Dodge Chrome in Silver Spring, Maryland, www.dodgechrome.com

    Excellent full-service commercial lab can do anything you want, including sheet film up to 8x10.

    [a href=http://www.colourworks.com]Colourworks in Wilmington, DE[/a] is a top-notch lab. Not only can they develop C-41, they can also do optical printing.

    Another good quality lab (from my experience) is [a href=http://www.philadelphiaphotographics.com]Philadelphia Photographics[/a] in Center City Philadelphia. As I said, all of my experiences have been excsllent, but others have complained that their processing is unpredictable.

    Chrome was at one time one of the top labs in DC.
    They have now merged with Dodge Color and I haven't used them recently.

    IDK what the shipping policies are but they would be safe to try.

    I do think there are several decent labs still operating in Philly.

    Another vote for Dodge/Chrome. I've used them recently and their C-41 is the best I can find in the area. Priced accordingly unfortunately. But they have no problem with receiving your film by mail and shipping it back out. Expect a 3-4 day turnaround. If you need it faster, try the New York City labs, like Duggal.

    Thanks guys! I'm going with Dodgechome. I use them for E-6, so I will stick with them for C-41. I was hoping for something a bit cheaper maybe, but if quality is important you pay for it I guess.

    I can highly recommend http://www.oldschoolphotolab.com Great quality, great prices, plus free shipping both ways. Their web host was knocked out by the hurricane, but keep trying their site.
