Where do you have your film processed?

  1. Ektagraphic
    Where do you have your slides processed? I send most of my film through the Fuji mailers since they are so economical (The film goes to Dwayne's). I also send to Dale Labs and Praus Productions.

    I also use the Fuji mail service here in Germany. Quality is excellent and turnaround time about one week. Price is also very economical.

    I shoot mostly E-6 or B&W. I process both myself. If I need something fast or I can't chance doing it myself I use The Finer Image. They are located here in Danvers, MA. It's a small 2-3 person shop. Same day service! It would probably be to far of a drive for you, but if you need E-6 fast it may be worth keeping them in the back of your mind. I hope you didn't get flooded with this rain. It's been a wet one for sure here on the North Shore today.

    Sent some Fujichrome film off on the 14th August to Fuji processing and it still hasn't arrived on 1st September! I send it to an address about 50 miles away! On the 12th August sent a couple of Kodachrome films off. These were posted from the UK to Switzerland, then they are posted to the USA, processed, sent back to Switzerland and I received one a couple of days ago and the other one today (1st September). So Fuji what has taken you so long? And well done Kodak! The few Velvia 50's I have used where processed by Jessops. They send the film away then contact me by phone to inform me that it is ready for collection. Now that is what I call service!

    Cheers Chris

    I'm lucky my local prolab is an official Fuji processing station (they do any E6 films) and they process them in two hours, so I can drop them off before I do my shopping, and collect them on the way home.

    I use Transpacolor in the UK. I've always had very good service from them, quick turnaround (by post) and a reasonable price. No problems with them so far. There's no local service near me so it's just as well that I like them!

    I have been having scratches on my film through Fuji mailers lately...they replaced the film and mailer but the slides are trashed. I am going to stick to Dale. A little more expensive but worth it.

    Hi Ektagraphic I wasn't all that impressed with Fuji's processing either! Plus they took too long to return the film - five weeks! One of the advantages of E6 was supposed to be fast turn around! When Kodachrome processing has finished I will go back wholly to digital unless I can find a processor that is fairly priced and offers a fast service.

    I've tried Metro colour Labs in Birmingham recently because someone recommended them on-line, and I'm very impressed with the quality of their work and they are very reasonably priced http://www.metrocolourlab.com/index_...lourlab_E6.htm I've also had some 120 C41 colour film developed and printed by them and they are also excellent.

    The last few E6 films I've processed myself; prior to that my favoured lab was "The Darkroom UK Ltd". They charge £4.50 for processing only and this includes VAT and postage both ways. I still have some Boots slide film left which is process paid, so that goes to the Warwick lab; they take 10-14 days to return it. If you buy on a "3 for 2" offer at Boots it works out about £5.33 per film, which is including processing, plus about £1.40 for postage to the lab.

    Wal-Mart. It goes to Dwayne's. Cheaper.

    For the last several years (2008 or so), I have used Dwayne's, initially for Kodachrome, more recently for my Ektachrome work. Having moved home last September after five years in Deadmonton, AB., I am now considering, for sake of convenience, checking out our local labs here in Vancouver. Most likely, when I have accumulated a dozen or so rolls, I will give ABC Color a shot, and see how the locals stack up...

    Hi I am new to slide film actually new to photography and only recently started shooting with velvia 50 and loving the saturation from it. I get it processed at a lab at the moment but soon want to process them at home and was planning on asking about any good starter kits known....thanks

    I did the Wal-Mart processing up until they stopped returning negatives with color print film. Decided I didn't want to chance it if they decided to scan the slides and return them on a CD with prints. Switched to Meijer (still Fuji, which goes to Dwayne's in the US), but found the 16-day turnaround to be too slow to suit my tastes when I had been getting 10-14 day turnaround before.

    I now use a local camera shop about an hour away from my home (but just a few miles from where I work). Turnaround is a week on E-6, and I just gave them a roll of the Rollei Digibase CR200 to process. They did a good job on my Provia.
