I'm parochial, critical and quality conscious, based on very long experience with many labs mostly in Melbourne, and remain loyal to those that provide service when it is required and on time. My present lab is PRISM Colour at Abbotsford Street, North Melbourne. E6 done Tues and Thurs; C41 virtually every day. Wisely, no traditional wet darkroom B&W work, but a lot of stunning digital colour and mono products coming out from film scans onto exotic Ilford and Kodak media. If you're doing colour digi work and own scanning, you'll be expected to have a working knowledge of Adobe and perceptual colorimetrics, as they charge for lengthy intervention on files that are mismatched in whatever detail. PRISM is cheap and efficient with a large pro client base; check out Alex Pavlou Photography (wedding pro) down a few hundred metres on the corner of Chapman Street.
