    Lab for 4x5 C41

    It seems here in Iowa there are no longer any labs that do it as far as I've seen. So, I'm looking for lab that I can mail them to for processing. Any suggestions? Looking for something that wont put me in the poor house...

    If you do your own B&W, C41 isn't much harder.

    I do tray developing and I've been told that doing C41 in trays is a nightmare.

    Hmm - I do C-41 in a Jobo. It's all about temperature control - if you can come up with a system to consistently keep your trays at the right temperature, then C-41 is no harder than B&W.

    For me A&I (Hollywood CA) is within driving distance. They did 4x5 C-41 last I knew. Check out their web site. But I see no way to play in LF anymore using commercial labs and stay out of the poor house.

    I've attached the pdf of their c-41 and e-6 order forms

    Dear Weebs,

    This is the lab I use: Phoenix Imaging

    The folks at the local community darkroom like CWS Film Systems.

    There's a good place in Tucson, AZ - Photographic Works

    I've been very pleased with their work, communication and timeliness.

    They process up to 11x14" I think, or at least 8x10"
