For not much money you can develop color print film and print it your self. The cost come out about $3 US a sheet total. Costs for printing RA4 are dirt cheap (cheaper than inkjet paper and ink by far). Look at getting a Jobo CPA or CPP processor. I also shoot chrome films in 4x5 and develop and drum scan them myself. Again if you do it yourself the costs are reasonable. http://www.hybridphoto.com, the APUG sister site, has more on scanning.
