    Processing lab for FP4 120 in Christchurch New Zealand?

    I'm just planning a trip from UK to New Zealand in October/November. I need to have my film processed before I fly back. Christchurch would be the most convenient, just before I fly back, but it would need to be next day service for upwards of 150 rolls 120 FP4. Does anyone know if there is a good pro lab, preferably using dip and dunk or similar, in the area?
    Thanks,
    Dave Butcher

    Try imagelab.co.nz, but I would speak to them first to see what they can do.

    Imagelab are the ones I'd try first, but you could also ask at Photo & Video. They do say three day turnaround, which they may be able to improve on, or it could just mean that they send B&W out to Imagelab. For 150 rolls, I'm sure one of them would try to accommodate you.

    Thanks for info. Have spoken to Imagelab and their b&w processing is all done in Wellington. I can take in to their Christchurch lab and they courier to Wellington. That makes it a 3 day turnaround. Can't find anything else so looks like we will be in Christchurch an extra day. Dave

    I'm trying to avoid film going through x-ray machines. In recent years I have seen fogging on FP4 with just 3 passes through UK and USA machines which are supposed to be properly set up and maintained. I now have hand searches in USA (a legal right I believe) but not reliably elsewhere and never in the UK. Now I try and have my film processed as I travel the world but it's getting harder finding labs doing b&w. Dave
