  4. CRC isn't bad.
     
  5. MV is the best b/w. LTI and Lexington are also good.
     
  6. MV are good and pricey.
    LTI only develop with Rodinal.
    Manhattan Color Lab are cheapest (5th and 20th) - they only develop with Tmax.
     
  7. Where's "MV," and for what do the letters stand?
     
  8. I had very good results from MV Labs with b/w processing.
     
  9. "MV" stands for Megargee and van der Linde; this is indeed one of the best black and white labs in the world. Jim Megaree is one of the best printers you will ever find. Consequently, they are a bit pricey- but worth it. I don't think they do color work, though. Take a look here: http://www.mvlabs.com/
    I have used CRC for several years, and am very happy with their work- they'd get my vote for most stuff. A word of caution about Baboo- they lost my film twice (!) and damaged negatives or slides on four separate occasions. I don't know what possessed me to keep giving them chances. This was several years ago, but I'll never go back.
     
  10. Hey Max
    give CRC a try i used them when i was going to FIT over the summer and film turned out good, plus they give discounts if you ask for it. i used to process c41 120 and get 4.5 meg scans for 13 bucks
    they're at 20 w22
