    Mail order labs for C-41 120?

    This is a question that needs to be re-asked frequently...

    What's a good lab for C-41 120? I'm interested in both develop-only and develop+prints or develop+scan. I do not want scratches, even faint ones. I guess that means I'm looking for well-maintained and operated dip and dunk outfits. Shooting Portra 400, if that matters. Located in the US.

    cannot say enough good things about:

    John is one of the good guys. Clean C-41 processing and terrific scans. Fantastic pricing!

    I'm in Atlanta and send all my C-41 to John.

    Hope this helps...

    I use this lab for everything but 135 (I have a closer lab for that). They also do optical RA-4 enlargements, if you're in to that sort of thing: http://www.colourworks.com/

    NOT dip and dunk so always the potential for a small scratch... Walmart send out service. $0.84 developing only 120 C-41. Anyone that says developing film is getting expensive is smoking crack.

    Another vote for NCPS. My premium special occasion stuff goes there. No complaints.

    I know you specified USA but in the UK Palm Labs in Birmingham takes a lot of beating. Personal service - anything they are not sure about, they phone and ask.

    Thanks for all the recommendations. I ended up sending it to Blue Moon, which I'd never heard of despite googling for a while. We'll see how the test roll goes. But keep the recommendations coming--it's only a test roll and I'm sure other people will find this thread valuable asa resource.
