    Yes... you'd think. The delay appears to be the prints (as mentioned by others responding to this thread). I live in one of the northern suburbs of LA (west San Fernando Valley) and nearby there are 4 pro labs. One went digital and their film services are atrocious now; another is still getting set up after moving (the 5-day turnaround I mentioned earlier); and the 2 others (I just found out) will turn C-41 negs, both 35mm and 120 in 4 hours but the prints/proofsheets take 2 days. Service might be better on the other side of "The Valley" since that is closer to the film/TV industry. As far as the chain photo stores go, their turnaround for any C-41 processing/printing is 3 days because they use a centralized lab.

    Thanks everybody for the feedback! I've been on a hiatus from anything other than 35mm developed at Walgreens for the past few years and it seems like things have changed alot. I don't adapt to change very well sometimes ;-)

    I always knew that there was something I REALLY, REALLY liked about Canada. Until now I thought it was mostly the pea-meal bacon!

    What kind of wusses don't develop their own film? They're not photographers -- they're button pushers.

    Is this a statement of fact.... or a rhetorical comment?

    A little of both, Brian. But it's mainly a troll.
    And I'll add another one.
    That the real work and commitment to photography lies in the drudgery of processing, particularly for color. If APUG was limited only to people who do all their own wet darkroom work, it would soon fade away like unfixed POP (despite the noble Pyro/Azo and Alternate Process stalwarts). Digital is not taking over because it's better, but because it's easier.

    Here in ferndale it takes about 45mins for development and 10mins for a contact. The service is great the price is next to nothing and the the lab rat who does the work is charming, goodlooking, talented, a fine dresser, has a great sense of humour, helps old ladies across the street and is an all around good guy.

    You're not related to Bob Mitchell are you? The colour guy? Inventor of the Unicube? etc?

    If colour processing is hard I'd hate what you'd call B&W.

    "We are all brothers, under the skin." Otherwise, not related.

    Nick, after I've done 3 color (that's colour to you) separation Dye Transfers for 25 years, then masked Cibachromes for another 10, B&W is technically a piece of cake.
    I have no problem with commercial photographers who send everything out to a lab (they're all going digital, anyhow), nor anyone who has their master prints made by a master printer after they've first done the scutwork of developing and proofing themselves (scanning instead of proofing is digital, not APUG).
