Recommended photo lab in Champaign, IL? Or Chigago area?

Adam Tirapelle , Jul 29, 2000; 02:19 a.m.

Just looking for a good quality photo lab in the Champaign, Illinois area. It doesn't need be top quality because I am also looking for something in the moderate price range. I just can't afford high priced developing and printing. Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if in the Chicago area. At least that is not too far. Thank you.

Film Processing Ltd on Neil St is great, but not cheap, especially for color negative proofs. Better Image on University is cheaper at that but still good quality, without the range of printing and cibachrome options of FPL... but your willing to drive three hours to chicago to get your film developed?? something's not right...

Most of the students in Champaign are from the Chicago area. Judging by the email address, Adam is either student or staff at U of IL.

I've found a couple of recommendations for Gamma in Chicago on photo.net, but I'm not sure if their prices are in your range.

I would second the recommendation of Film Processing Ltd., but strongly advise against Better Image. One time I gave them 6 rolls of slides and more than 50 of them came back with fingerprints, water marks, and scratches. No problem with Film Processing Ltd. so far.
