I typically shoot, process and print B&W film on my own. I'd like to shoot some color negative (Portra 400), but am not interested in processing, printing, or going full-hybrid in-house. Please don't try to convince me otherwise. Given that, I'd love to hear your thoughts on these questions:
1) Which are your favorite mail-order labs for processing Portra 400?
(Moderators, my apologies if the following questions are too d*g*tal. If so, please remove them and I will self-flagellate with an unwound roll of Acros 120 dipped in stop bath. Given the increasing scarcity of color paper options, I'm hoping the discussion is ok.)
2) Which are your favorite labs for scanning processed film with quality levels that permit printing up to 20x24 (more likely 16x20)?
3) Which are your favorite labs for printing (quality and reasonable pricing are both important) either directly from film or from a processed scan?
I've searched for recent threads on this, but most of what I've found is older and may not reflect the current market. Thanks to all of you for looking and sorry again if you think this should be in DPUG.
