I have decided to contact the instructor of the class to discuss using LF in the class. I think the University can only develop up too 2 1/4" in their film processing machine. Their color enlargers are able to do up to 4x5 thought. I do have an old 4x5 camera that I could use for enlarging negatives, but I would rather stick to my 8x10 and making contact prints. There is something about an 8x10 contact print that I absolutly LOVE, so I would prefer to keep using the 8x10.
I might look into ways I could process color negatives in another way then their automatic machine. I cannot afford to take them to a lab really.
Thanks everyone for your help thus far.
