35mm Film Processing: Where best?

Dan Lovell - Orange County, California , Oct 22, 2008; 12:44 p.m.

Where in the Los Angeles or Orange County, Calif area can one find good film processing at good prices?

Short of that, what places anywhere in the nation provides good mail-in service, great processing and decent prices?

Thanks, Dan

You can also rent time at the Irvine Fine Arts center darkroom to develop your own B&W. They are well equipped and provide all chemicals. It's only around $20 for the whole day.

If you're talking B&W no one is better or cheaper than yourself.

What Greg said. Maybe you are tired of doing it yourself, fair enough.

But don't be daunted by it. I started less than one year ago with a changing bag (you don't need a dark room), a few second hand tanks and reels and assorted stuff. Equipment and chemicals are very cheap. The hardest thing is getting your film onto the reel in a changing bag.

You'll be amazed.

...and I was amazed! I spent a some time at FreeStyle Photographic Supplies in Hollywood and picked up all the kit I need to develop B&W 35mm at home. Developed 5 rolls so far, and the negatives came out very nice. Thanks everyone for your comments!
