Quality processing of film and prints around Nassau County, New York

Mark Guttenplan , Jan 11, 2002; 12:18 p.m.

Can someone please recommend a great place to have my print film done in or around Nassau County, New York, as I have 15 rolls from a recent trip. I had been doing slides only for the last 5 years and decided to give prints another try, after having in the past been extremely discouraged my the poor results of the Eckerd, etc... type labs, anyone with a favorite processor, your advise will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

There's a good Frontier lab in Elmont, NY. The manager(owner?) is a nice and experienced person. The only problem is they don't do E6 processing. They do enlargments from slides thgough. Try their ebsite: www.epixel.com

There is a pro custom lab in St.James, Suffolk County, I can't remember the name. For proofing I use Foto60 in Port Washington but they don't do custom enlargements. HiTech Photo in Plainview or Great Neck provides an ear for service but the line is questionable. I don't think that Diversified or JoMark offer proofs. Avoid Diversified anyway. You should make sure that your negatives are properly developed. I'd rather get good processing with contact sheets than bad processing with proofs. For fifteen rolls, I'd consider doing a run to NYC. Good luck.

I can not specifically recommend any lab in your area, however I had very good results with Costco processing. That is a part of Costco Warehouse. They even have done very good printing in 1 Hr lab. I tried this place after seeing one of my friends prints. You might want first want to give a one roll to 1 Hr provessing lab. Hope that helps.
