Recommended Professional lab in Tampa Bay, Florida?

Kyle Novell , May 29, 2004; 11:14 p.m.

Can anyone please recommend a professional lab for processing C-41 color negative film in the Tampa Bay area? Price is not an option as long as the quality is excellent. Thanks very much!

I'm from St. Pete, and there isn't much here. I occasionally go to Sam's Golden Triangle on Kennedy, but not often enough to review the quality overall. (Kodak TMax 100 & 400 negs both seemed grainer than usual.) I just fork over the money and ship all my film off to A&I (aandi.com) in their pre-paid mailers. They're not cheap, but the quality is quite good, and the turnaround decent--sometimes within a week and a half of my mailing. I even have my Portra film processed there--they use Fuji Crystal Archive paper--and haven't suffered too much at all for my cross-company indescretions.

Kelly,

Have you tried Zebra? on 1st Ave. North in St. Pete?

If so what did you think?
