Online Film Processing

Victor Thomas , Jan 09, 2005; 10:40 p.m.

Does anyone have a recommendation for photo labs? I'd like to send in my 35mm film and receive either prints and a photo cd or access the images online. From my research it appears that Shutterfly.com seems to have the highest ratings. I live in Orlando, FL and wonder if it'd be better off going to a local pro lab and have them develop the film and provide hi-res scans.

Hi Victor:

I don't know where Hollywood FL is in relation to Orlando, but I live in CA and send my negative color film to Dale Labs for processing.


With the caveat that this is just my hobby, I find Dale does a good job, and what I like best is that they will make and return slides in addition to my color negatives! I find that to be a great convenience for viewing/scanning while still affording me the economy and exposure-latitude of negative film.

Hope that helps. ...Phil

Oh, I should have mentioned that Dale will also provide Photo CDs (and of course, prints) at your request , with or without slides... ;)
